Faster Horses country fest is on for July, could draw 40,000

Michigan’s biggest summer music festival is a go.

The Faster Horses Festival, which has traditionally drawn 40,000-plus fans daily to Michigan International Speedway, will take place as scheduled July 16-18, producer Live Nation announced Wednesday.

The three-day country and camping fest will proceed with the lineup originally set for last year, including headliners Jason Aldean, Luke Combs and Thomas Rhett. This summer’s rescheduled date was announced in spring 2020, but its status remained uncertain because of ongoing pandemic restrictions.

Wednesday’s announcement was delivered in a video set to Aldean’s 2019 song “We Back.”
