"Faster Horses" Up & Running

Posted: Updated:

(WLNS) - The "Faster Horses" country music festival kicks off today.  The 3 day event brings thousands of people to Brooklyn to camp out and enjoy the tunes at MIS.

6 News Francesca Amiker previews this year's event to breakdown some of the stars hitting the stage.

It's festival season in Michigan and they just keep rolling through or should I say trotting?

Today is the first day of the highly anticipated "Faster Horses Festival" and music lovers from all over are flocking to Michigan International Speedway.

This event is huge! People are already setting up their campgrounds, securing that perfect spot near the stage. Last year this festival featured some of country music's biggest stars.

But will the festival out-do themselves this year? My guess is: yes! Some of the performers include Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, Miranda Lambert and Kip Moore. And that's just naming a few that will be on the three stages.

Organizers can't wait to see how much bigger turn-out is this year. In fact, they expect attendance to be more than 15,000 music fans.

Last reminder:  the festival begins today and lasts throughout the weekend at Michigan International Speedway. Grab a tent and some sunscreen and we'll see you at the country music races.
