Kicker Country Stampede Kicks Off HUGE 20th Anniversary Celebration with Thomas Rhett, Fireworks & Thousands of Their Closest Friends


Kicker Country Stampede, along with thousands of their Country music-lovin, cowboy boot-wearin’ friends, celebrated its 20th anniversary today by shooting off thousands of fireworks, 100 shells every 30 seconds for each year the event has taken place. Country music’s fastest rising star Thomas Rhett, Country rocker Dallas Smith, Old Dominion and others helped kick off the biggest year to date. And that was just day one! This year’s attendees will see the biggest names and brightest stars in Country music take the Cenex® main stage throughout the weekend (June 25-28) in Manhattan, Kansas, including megastar and judge on NBC’s The Voice Blake Shelton, superstar duo Florida Georgia Line, Country music’s sweetheart Sara Evans, Country legend Travis Tritt, Jerrod Niemann, Craig Morgan and many more. See the full line-up here.

Kicker Country Stampede is so much #morethanmusic. In addition to the Cenex® main stage boasting the biggest names in Country music, the Nashville Songwriters Association International Songwriters Tent features established, as well as up-and-coming songwriters, and the Kite’s Grille & Bar Tuttleville Stage is once again showcasing the best local talent the Midwest has to offer. Other activities include mouth-watering vendor food, shopping, interactive exhibits and much, much more

Due to high demand, Kicker Country Stampede has released a limited number of single-day tickets—available for $90 while supplies last—to THE event of the summer. For fans wanting the full 20th anniversary experience, complete with music, camping, fireworks, food, shopping, exhibits and more, four-day passes are available for $160. There are a very limited number of primitive camping spots left for $190 each. Festival organizers are also giving tickets holders the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see their favorite country stars up-close-and-personal with the Party Pit. Located directly in front of the main stage, the Party Pit puts fans steps away from their favorite artists during their performances! There are a very limited number of passes in this standing-room-only area. Complete ticket, Party Pit and camping information can be found online at or by calling 800-795-8091.
