KICKER is again the title sponsor of the 23rd annual Country Stampede, set for June 21-23 at Tuttle Creek State Park in Manhattan, Kansas. This event serves as KICKER’s sixth time as the event title sponsor.
More than 65 bands will perform during the three-day concert, with 15 featured on the Cenex mainstage alone. This year’s headliners are Cole Swindell, Alabama and Florida Georgia Line. The attendance is expected to exceed 160,000 fans this year, placing it among the largest country music festivals in the nation.
“We had approximately 35,000 attendees in 1996,” said Wayne Rouse, founder and president of the Country Stampede.
KICKER plans to bring several vehicles to the event, including the XRV (Xtreme Recreational Vehicle), which houses a full showroom of KICKER audio products and a massive 20,000-watt boom room for fans to experience.
Accompanying the XRV will be a KICKER and SSV Works-equipped Polaris GENERAL and Ranger. Each UTV features SSV Works custom enclosures and a different combination of powersports amplifiers, speakers and subwoofers.
Supermodel and WWE diva Danielle Moinet (known to the wrestling faithful as Summer Rae) and Reviver Records country artist Kayla Adams will be accompanying multiple video crews on behalf of KICKER, filming throughout the venue, campgrounds and backstage, capturing the spirit of the Country Stampede.
