Settle in and listen to award winning tracks, toss and axe, and ride some of Nevada’s most historic tracks at Carson City’s first multi-day music festival. In its inaugural year, the event combines Silver State history and some of the best rock and blues musicians on the scene today, with axe throwing, “Master of the Shred”, access to all kinds of great food trucks and bars, and all kinds of live music all over town for a festival experience you’ll be coming back for from here on out.
Located at the Eastgate Depot in Carson City, Battle Axe & Tracks takes place right in the heart of V&T railroad history—the legendary rail line that hauled millions of silver from the Comstock Lode in Virginia City to Carson City to be minted. Sign up for an axe throwing competition (included in your ticket price), ride the rails with V&T Carson Canyon Railbike Tours, and get your hands on all kinds of local food and drinks from a great lineup of food trucks and other food vendors.
An impressive 15 musical acts will be featured throughout Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, with headliners Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Larkin Poe, North Mississippi Allstars, and Samantha Fish. On Friday, head for downtown Carson City’s Brewery Arts Center to see Carson City Axe Battle, where 10 guitarists will go head to head to determine the “Master of Shred.” The winner takes the stage in Sunday’s musical lineup.
