The Kicker Country Stampede is a 3-day outdoor music and camping festival!
Tickets are now on sale for the 2022 Country Stampede. Having been rained on 24 of the last 25 years, the music festival will now be held a few weeks later in the summer, on July 14-16, 2022, at Heartland Motorsports Park. Moving the event to the permanent facility in Topeka, Kansas, this past summer meant hard-surface set up for many vendors, motorhomes and the hospitality village, but weather on the traditional June dates still caused delays and challenges for all involved. With input from spectators, sponsors and artists seeking drier weather, the music festival has been moved to mid-July.
More than a dozen participating artists will be revealed during the month of October, with country music singer and songwriter Jake Owen the first to be announced for next year’s Country Stampede. Owen, who will be the Friday headliner, recently released a new single “Best Thing Since Backroads,” and earlier this year celebrated his ninth No. 1 hit “Made for You,” which spent two weeks at the top of country radio charts in May.
Beyond three days of great musical performances, fans will enjoy new entertainment on the main stage between artists, as well as expanded festival grounds with more sponsor displays, midway vendors, and food and beverage outlets. Having the event inside Heartland Motorsports Park also provides additional amenities for campers and daily spectators, including permanent restrooms, shower facilities and a VIP entertainment venue. Camping areas at the park have also been expanded, with options ranging from tent camping to motorhome spots with electrical hook-ups.
Spectators will want to purchase tickets and camping now to take advantage of early discount prices and availability. General admission tickets, reserved seating, VIP accommodations and camping spots are on sale at www.CountryStampede.com. Fans are encouraged to purchase tickets early, as this past summer’s music festival was the largest Country Stampede to date, and the 2022 event in July is expected to grow even further. Tune into radio station 102.9 Cat Country, as well as other stations in your area, for additional announcements, and follow Country Stampede on social media for regular updates.
