Rock the Country Festival Coming to Ashland, KY This Spring

Feb 5, 2024

Country music fans, rejoice! Come this spring, you will be able to cross some of your favorite country artists off of your concert bucket list. The Rock The Country Festival is making a stop in Ashland on April 19-20, 2024, as part of their tour through 7 small towns. With our roots in the Country Music Highway, it’s no wonder we were part of their list!

Superstars you’ve been listening to for decades and new favorites you won’t want to miss will all grace the stage at Boyd County Fairgrounds. This two-day event is headlined by Kid Rock and Jason Aldean. Brantley Gilbert, Travis Tritt, Nelly, Gavin Adcock, Colt Ford, Elvie Shane, Saddie Bass, and Dee Jay Silver are supporting acts for the Ashland leg of the festival.

If this festival wasn’t already enough of a party, the opportunity to camp on-site is also available! Celebrate all weekend long and sleep under the stars with the ultimate RV Camping experience. The RV package offers a comfortable and convenient home base for your festival adventure with a spacious site and complimentary amenities. A car camping package is also available, with a roomy space to pitch your tent and access to all the same amenities.
