10 Reasons to Head to Taste of Country Music Festival

Taste of Country


Festival season is in full swing, and we are only a few weeks away from the Taste of Country Music Festival. Are you on the fence about attending? Here are ten reasons that will help you change your mind.

1. Largest country music and camping festival in the Northeast

Country music is undoubtedly known for being popular in the south, but what about us Northeasterners? Taste of Country Music Festival recognizes our passion and love we have for the genre. It also gives fans who aren’t able to travel to Stage Coach or the CMA Fest an opportunity to have an experience of a lifetime.

2. Headliners
Taste Of Country is the best place to see all your favorites on the big stage. You don’t want to miss Keith Urban on Friday, Rascal Flatts on Saturday, and Little Big Town on Sunday to close out the festival.

3. Opening Acts
Before the headliners hit the stage each night, great opening acts will hit the ZYN stage each day. Friday the party starts at 3 PM. Saturday and Sunday it starts at 1 PM. Where else can you see these acts all in one place? We highlight some of our favorite new artists that you can’t miss here!

4. The mountain
The summer’s best party takes place on Hunter Mountain. What’s better than camping, your favorite artists, and picturesque mountains in the background? Absolutely nothing. Take our advice and hop on the ski lift for the most beautiful views of the entire festival.

5. Great food
When people think of camping, they think of not having a great variety of food to eat. That’s not the case at Taste of Country Music Festival! You’ll have the options of pizza, BBQ, Mexican, chicken fingers, and so much more! For your sweet tooth, there will be fried Oreos, ice cream, etc. The options are endless.

6. Meeting fellow country music fans
There are no better fans out there than those of country music. We know how to have a good time, look out for one another, and identify talent when we see it. Plus, there’s no greater bond than jamming out to your favorite artists with the people who share your passion.

7. Up and Coming Artists
The ZYN Stage is not the only place to see great talent! You’ll also have the opportunity to catch new talent at the Shiner Bock Tap House Stage throughout the weekend. Take a break from the heat, enjoy a drink, and listen to some great rising artists. When they make it big, you’ll be able to say you saw them first at TOC! Here’s who is on the schedule!

8. Shopping
Before the acts hit the stage, make sure to visit the vendors for all of your festival gear, souvenirs, and more!

9. Memories to last a lifetime
Whether you go to the Taste of Music Festival every year or this will be your first time, you’ll be talking about this weekend for a long time!

10. New York Country Swag Booth
