The music world has spoken, and Gordy Schroeder is listening as the founder behind the beloved Hwy 30 Music Fest announces the event’s expansion to Fort Worth, Texas. Beginning next year, the four-day concert series will be held in two locations, its original home of Filer Idaho, and now Texas Motor Speedway in the “Culture Capital of the Southwest” from October 19-23, 2023.
First debuting in 2009 as a fundraiser for a local school in a tiny Idaho town, Hwy 30 Music Fest has grown to the largest in the state, attracting attendees from across the nation and overseas. Hoping to double that success, Schroeder spent years looking for a second city to hold his event, also known as the “People’s Festival.” The name of the event will also remain true, with Fort Worth’s premier location on Interstate 30, which connects the South’s hardworking blue-collar towns.
“As soon as we arrived in Fort Worth to scout for a second location, it immediately felt like home,” said Schroeder. “Our attendees have been asking us for years to consider this expansion and we know that the Texas Motor Speedway will be able to provide that family-friendly, homegrown atmosphere that people come to us for while still attracting some of the biggest acts in the world.”
The lineup for the brand-new Hwy 30 Music Fest in Fort Worth will be announced in early 2023. Meanwhile, tickets are selling quickly for the June 21-24 festival to be held in Idaho at the Twin Falls County Fairgrounds. Both events will host special dedication days, including honoring military and first responders. To learn more, visit www.hwy30tx.com.
