Kicker Country Stampede Set for June 22-June 24, 2017
For the past three days, thousands of Country music fans have descended on Manhattan, Kansas, to celebrate the 21st anniversary of Kicker Country Stampede. Jake Owen threw a beach party at Tuttle Creek State Park, blazing through his catalog of hits, including “American Country Love Song,” “Barefoot Blue Jean Nights” and “Beachin’,” and brought to a close another year of the event of the summer, along with Chase Rice, Casey Donahew Band, Tucker Beathard and Ryan Hurd.
The packed crowd was treated to the biggest and brightest stars in Country music throughout the three full days of music and entertainment, including Tim McGraw, Dierks Bentley, Sam Hunt, Chris Janson, Josh Abbott Band, Cassadee Pope and many more. “This year’s festival has been the best Kicker Country Stampede to date,” said Wayne Rouse, president and general manager of the festival. “I hope everyone comes back for another amazing year. Stay tuned for very exciting line-up announcements!”
Plans for next year are already well underway, with festival organizers working towards an even bigger and better 2017 Kicker Country Stampede. For a limited time, three-day GA passes are available for $120 and VIP passes for $510 and campsites are available starting at $135.
