The Front Porch Stage will host performances by Chayce Beckham, Redferrin, Kalsey Kulyk, Buck Twenty, and Taylor-Rae.

Saturday’s lineup promises an exciting blend of rock and country, headlined by Thomas Rhett and the Grammy-nominated rock band Matchbox Twenty, marking their only Canadian performance of the year. They will be joined by Hunter Brothers, Elyse Saunders, the previously announced rock act NEEDTOBREATHE, and others. The Front Porch Stage will feature Jackson Dean, Bryan Martin, Lauren Watkins, Texas King, and Alee.

The festival will conclude on Sunday with performances by Jason Aldean, Carly Pearce, Nate Smith, Madeline Merlo, and Alexandra Kay on the main stage.

Brooke Dunford, Director of Talent Buying and Business Development, highlighted the festival’s commitment to uniting fans through music and creating unforgettable experiences, expressing excitement over the inclusion of Matchbox Twenty in this year’s lineup:

“The growing popularity of country music not only attracts a wider audience but allows an opportunity for more creativity in curating our artist lineup. It’s important to us to unite fans and create lasting memories with an experience they can’t get anywhere else.
