Country 500 May 25-27: The Great American Music Fest at Daytona

2018 Country Music Festival 500

Returning for its third consecutive year, the Country 500 Music Fest will be back for Memorial Day Weekend in Daytona. This world-class festival is a three-day, three-night mega-music event that you definitely won’t want to miss. It’ll showcase today’s biggest country music stars, food, fun, activities, and much more, all hosted on the infield of the famous Daytona International Speedway.

Affectionately known as “The Great American Music Fest at Daytona,” the Country 500 attracts big name country stars, performing hits from today and yesterday. Top artists playing this year include Toby Keith, Dierks Bentley, Randy Houser, A Thousand Horses, Frankie Ballard, James Barker Band, High Valley, Lindsay Ell, Chris Stapleton, Billy Currington, 38 Special, David Nail, Sugarland, and many more. Multiple performance stages are built and specifically designed for the festival, making for an extra entertaining weekend.

Guests are welcome to camp out during the event on the infield of the track, aka the iconic grounds of Daytona International Speedway.
