[EVENT RECAP] Faster Horses 40,000 Fans Strong

40,000 eager country fans traveled across Michigan in search of the ultimate country music experience. In its 5th year anniversary celebration, Faster Horses lived up to its name, once again, providing the crowd the undeniable “Party of the Summer.”

The 2017 Faster Horses country music festival was held at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, Michigan. The weekend festival featured performances by country royalty, including the likes of Dierks Bentley, Miranda Lambert, Luke Bryan and Brett Eldredge. Eighty-year-old Charlie Daniels also came to party, fiddle in hand.

The Next From Nashville stage also featured a number of its own notable performances from up-and-coming artists. LANco, who is already dominating country radio airplay across the country, took the Next From Nashville stage on Saturday night, giving Old Dominion’s main stage performance a run for its money. Their hit song, “Greatest Love Story”, energized thousands of fans who couldn’t help but sing along.

Mountain Productions built our signature MTN HD+ Staging System for the country festival’s main stage, as well as the Next From Nashville stage. We were also happy to provide camera platforms, VIP platforms, and an ADA-compliant VIP viewing platform.

Faster Horses relied on Mountain Productions for a number of other ancillary structures, as well, including everything from ground cover and barricades to video posts and risers.

The self-proclaimed “Hillbilly Sleepover” left little room for dozing off. Equipped with Budweiser’s signature Clydesdale horses, a Faster Humans Fun Run for the brave, line dancing, pancake parties, competitions, and the best new music to kick your boots to, a little rain couldn’t stop the party of the summer.
