To get to know the real Nevada, get away from the metro areas and dive deep into Nevada's countryside for the best weekend of camping and country music of the year. What originally began as a community fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Club has blossomed into a serious country music festival, but get this: it's practically out in the middle of nowhere Nevada. That's the beauty of it all - you can escape the hustle and bustle of the big city and into the country to be dazzled by some of the world's leading country music musicians. Some past musicians have included Kip Moore, Chase Rice, LOCASH, Blackjack Billy, Jake Owen, The Band Perry, Old Dominion, Little Big Town, Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley and more.
Located on the outskirts of the quiet community of Yerington, nearly 30k country fans flock to Lyon County Fairgrounds for an impressive line up of country's biggest stars. Choose from a variety of ticket options, which range from standard campgrounds and general admission tickets, all the way up to full VIP treatment with an exclusive Club 149 pass. With one of these golden tickets, visitors can expect meet & greets with the performers, unlimited drink tickets, a special camping section, and catered meals.
But, it's not just the music that's been drawing people out to the middle of nowhere Nevada for 15 years. This sold out event is practically the cowboy version of Burning Man, with themed campsites, wild costumes, and all night partying. In fact, party zone section of the campground area is so wild it's been known to attract the performers themselves. Aside from some of America's top performers, visitors can also enjoy access to the Full Moon Saloon venue, Extreme Bull Riding, mud volleyball and more.
Grab that American flag bikini, a case of Coors Light and head for an unforgettable Night in the Country - you never know who you just might bump into.
