The Great American Music Fest returns to the infield of DAYTONA for the third consecutive year!
Over three fun and sun-filled days the “World Center of Racing” is turned into the “World Center of Entertainment” featuring some of country music’s biggest stars inside the most recognizable venue in racing. Here’s just a few reasons to visit DAYTONA for the Country 500.
If you've never been to Daytona International Speedway, you're missing out on an American icon. This festival will put you right in the middle of all the history and heritage that has made this place world-famous. No other music festival in the world can claim such a distinctive and historical site as its venue. Be here as the Country 500 transforms racing's greatest venue into a festival-goer's dream.
The Country 500 camping experience at Daytona International Speedway will transport you into a unique festival community unto itself. Those lucky enough to reserve Country 500 infield camping will have the opportunity to live in the heart of a great music festival, with the ability to stroll from your campsite to the festival's stages, food and beverage offerings, and other activities with ease - all within the historic infield of DAYTONA.
Artists on the Rise
Aside from the names you already know, you'll get a glimpse of the future of country music as exciting rising artists like Randy Houser, Tyler Farr and Colt Ford will be performing all weekend long.
Wide Variety of Food
This isn't your average festival food. At the Country 500, scheduling your meals for three days can sometimes be tougher than trying to figure out what acts you're going to see. The plethora of food will certainly entice hungry guests, with choices including tantalizing sandwiches, a variety of mac and cheese, a selection of burgers and barbeque, fresh Seafood, shaved ice, and so much more. There are options available for everyone to enjoy the delicious food and thirst-quenching drinks.
The festival once again features some of the biggest names in the industry, from superstars like Toby Keith, Chris Stapleton, Dierks Bentley, and Sugarland, to classic rock sounds like 38 Special.
When not taking in the performances from the main stage or the Bluebird Theatre, hang out at the Budweiser Country Club, Craft’s Marketplace, and more!
Numerous other features - a select festival menu sold from food booths and food trucks; carnival rides; arcade games; cooling water elements; country-and-western merchandise - will all be a part of the festival, as Country 500 once again transforms racing's greatest venue into country music heaven.
Fans at the festival will also have the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of their favorite country stars at artist meet-and-greets. The meet-and-greet area has proven to be a highlight for many patrons as they share memories that will last a lifetime.
