MANHATTAN, KS (06.30.2014) – KICKER began the second straight year of a partnership with the preeminent country-music festival in the Midwest watching Billboard Music award-winner Luke Bryan perform to thousands of screaming fans at Tuttle Creek State Park. The KICKER Country Stampede, running from June 26-29 and for the 19th consecutive time, showcases 20 of country-music’s top acts in this campsite-turned-fanfest and includes talent like Bryan, Eric Church, Easton Corbin and Chris Young.
“There’s no comparison to the thousands of new eyes laid upon our brand and logo this weekend,” said KICKER Global Marketing Director Kevin Campbell. “KICKER speaks to anyone who loves music, and we’re talking upward to 175,000 passionate fans who turn out for this event year after year.”
Along with a crew of several employees, KICKER sets up the XRV (Xtreme Recreational Vehicle) tractor-trailer, along with a Chevy Silverado and Sonic featuring new Vehicle-Specific Solutions, several UTVs loaded with KICKER Powersports gear, and an active sales trailer for the throngs of fans that descend upon Tuttle Creek. Attendees win several prizes and gift packages throughout the weekend, and are also subjected to the 20,000-watt Boom Room in the XRV.
The KICKER Country Stampede country-music and lifestyle festival features multiple live stages with performances from today’s biggest stars, mouth-watering vendor food, shopping, interactive exhibits, camping and much more. Past performers include Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert, Taylor Swift, Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw, Lady Antebellum, Blake Shelton, Brad Paisley and Keith Urban to name a few.
