Jake Owen to Headline 2016 Taste of Country Music Festival
Jake Owen has joined Kenny Chesney as a 2016 Taste of Country Music Festival headliner. The three-day camping and country music festival is set for June 10-12 in Hunter, N.Y., and tickets and VIP packages are on sale now.
Many more artists will be announced in the coming weeks, including a third major headliner. Last summer, Tim McGraw, Keith Urban and Toby Keith were the featured acts, with openers like Billy Currington and Sara Evans heating up the stage beforehand. The mid-June festival is nestled in the scenic Catskill Mountains, just two hours from New York City.
Tickets are on sale now, starting at $155 for a three-day general admission pass. VIP packages begin at $499, with Super Outlaw and Ultimate Outlaw upgrades also available. These packages include options like VIP seating and access to hospitality tents all weekend long. A full menu of camping options is also available at the Taste of Country Music Festival website.
Owen's set promises hit songs like "Barefoot Blue Jean Night," "Yee Haw," "Eight Second Ride" and his current single "Real Life." With a new album planned for 2016, the Florida native should have more new music to share with fans, as well. He tells Taste of Country he's aiming to create an album that's truly great from start to finish.
The 2016 Taste of Country Music Festival at Hunter Mountain is the only three-day camping and country music festival in the Northeast. In addition to the music, fans will find top-notch food vendors, outdoor recreation and a charming community eager to support the tens of thousands who call their town home for one long — and loud — country weekend.
