Country Summer Music Festival headliners are Florida Georgia Line on June 15, Little Big Town on June 16 and Toby Keith on June 17. Northern California’s biggest country music festival and Sonoma County’s biggest party, is held annually at the Sonoma County Event Center at the Fairgrounds, 1350 Bennett Valley Road.
Friday’s lineup also includes Granger Smith, Eric Paslay, Lindsay Ell and Muscadine Bloodline. Saturday’s lineup also includes Maren Morris, Tyler Farr, Drake White and Seth Ennis. Sunday’s line up also includes Joe Nichols, High Valley and a still to be announced performer.
While great music is the main attraction, Country Summer also features shopping, experiential activities, a variety of culinary delights and an array of libations -- from Anheuser-Busch beverages for beer drinkers, to wine and spirits at the Kendall-Jackson Wine Garden and Jack Daniel’s Saloon.
The Country Summer Country Club, introduced and sold out in 2017, is a members-only, indoor VIP destination featuring a complimentary buffet style meal, a honky-tonk cash bar, games and activities, private restrooms and a break from the California sun. There’ll be live video on big screens and audio streaming from the Chevy Silverado Stage this year. Membership is limited to 350 guests each day.
In the past four years, Country Summer has evolved into a colossal destination country music event, attracting concert-goers from across the nation and four countries.
New this year is the Country Summer Campground, in addition to the RV Park. Camping passes and packages include access to the Camper’s Lounge and Country Summer After Party, starring Dee Jay Silver, 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.
