This year, it seems like music festivals are popping up in Arizona to try to separate music fans from their money, but the king of events where you stand in a field and listen to music outdoors will likely remain Country Thunder, the four-day fest held near Florence on April 10-13 next year.
This year, the lineup has some big names, including attractive people The Band Perry, Jason Aldean and Miranda Lambert, along with Sawyer Brown, Mark Chestnutt, Joe Diffie, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and rising stars Charlie Worsham, Will Hoge and Chad Brownlee. More acts will be announced soonish, the promoters promise.
Tickets are currently priced at $130 for the four days, although that price goes up the closer it gets to the event. More info can be found at arizona.countrythunder.com.
