NASHVILLE (CelebrityAccess) – Hometown Rising, the first-ever Country Music & Bourbon Festival, produced by premier independent festival producer Danny Wimmer Presents, welcomed a sold-out crowd of 70,000 to the Highland Festival Grounds at KY Expo Center in Louisville, Kentucky, over the weekend.
Those in attendance took in non-stop entertainment from over 30 acts, including Tim McGraw, Luke Bryan, Little Big Town, Keith Urban, Dwight Yokam, Trace Adkins, Lindsay Ell and more, performing across two side-by-side main stages. Additionally, concert-goers had the chance to experience one-of-a-kind food and beverage options including hand-selected bourbons from nearly two dozen top distilleries, a variety of culinary dishes inspired by Kentucky flavors and a range of other onsite experiences.
“Hometown Rising was our first-ever country music festival and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have delivered two days of great music and incredible bourbon – two of Louisville’s cornerstones,” shared Wimmer. “We’re fans first and this was all about bringing a unique, tailored experience to the country music community. Thank you to the fans, artists and our partners for making our dream a reality.”
Hometown Rising kicked off Danny Wimmer Presents’ Louisville Trifesta series, which continues with Bourbon & Beyond September 20-22 and Louder Than Life September 27-29.
