Produced in conjunction with festival promoter Prime Social Group, Saturday’s lineup features a country theme, including chart-topping country music hits like Janson’s No. 1 songs “Done,” “Buy Me a Boat” and “Good Vibes.”
Janson will perform alongside breakthrough artist Mitch Tenpenny, a 2019 nominee for the Academy of Country Music’s New Male Artist of the Year. Tenpenny’s hits include “Drunk Me,” “Can’t Go to Church” and the newly released “Broken Up.”
The two-day show also includes the previously announced Friday night slate of up-and-coming Pop artists Quinn XCII and Chelsea Cutler.
