Kick Roaring good time-Faster Horses 2018

The aliens have arrived at the biggest country music party of the year.  As Faster horses came rolling into Brooklyn Michigan for the biggest part of the summer.  Scott Deforest and Kyle Kosciolek thought why not liven thing up by wearing a blow up costume of aliens holding their humans.  This was just a few of the site you get to see over the three day festival of country music.

FasterHorsesFest2018__20180720__JOE_7971__Joe's Photography_Michigaaneventmagazine

Faster Horses Music Festival is a three day music festival that took place in Brooklyn Michigan at the Michigan International Speedway. This festival bring together list of both National act to those that are hoping to be on the top stage of national performers for a music festival that is out of the world.  

Beside music there are lot of thing you could due at the three day festival.  First off if this was your first time one of the biggest thing you can do is spend your day camping at one of the 5 different campsite along with the special vip camp site. This is where the party would continue and start each day of the music festival.  The campsite range in price from low to high. The biggest would be the vip camping site that allow those that want to do camping close to the festival in special teepee style tents. Some of the other thing you could do was a big of shopping weather it be something made right here in Michigan or that fabulous music and festival merchandise.

You could also take in some of the annual fun at the festival like take a ride down the big water slide, ride the ferris wheel , play video game, due a bit of line dancing and playing a few of the lawn game they had.  There was also a corn hole tourment that went on as well location in what they call the beach area. There you could also play some beach volleyball as well. If this wasn’t something you want to do or play, you could take in on playing some softball or even play the big dart board with soccer velcro balls.  

FasterHorsesMusicFestival_MichiganEvnetMagazine_2873_20160717

There also was some special thing you could due while at the Faster Horses Music festival was take part in the faster humans ride. Where contest could run around the Michigan International Speedway. They were also welcome to wear whatever they wanted during the event so they could win prizes (contest winner category Fastest Human, best costume and more).  This year Faster Horse Humans runs also partner with the Foundation for flint witch each $20 donation runner would get a free t-shirt plus a pancake. All the proceeds would go to the Flint Child Health and Development Fund in order to help out the water crisis in Flint Michigan.

Some of the other thing can you can do was on Sunday see the Hustle & Muscle Classic car and Truck Show. This would bring in all type of cars and truck for everyone to see from all ears of time. There even was a hearse on hand showing off the fans with a special guest (DEAD Bob as we like to call him).

Fasterhorese2018__20180722__JOE_9570__Joe's Photography_Michigaaneventmagazine

But the biggest draw for the three day festival would be the music and the parting. This year was a lucky year for Faster Horses that we only had one bad day at the event due to weather.

This was would happen friday after when some bad storm started moving across Michigan. Weather would prompt the Faster Horses crew and staff to take some precaution and the fan safe into account. So on friday due to the weather approaching the the staff would stop the event for a few hours to let the bad weather roll through. They had all fans run to there campsite and or cars to wait out the storm for there safety.  But overall the nice warm sun came out for all three day to make the festival the place to be.

How ever for the three day festival this wasn’t there only thing to worry about. With what everything that has happen at other festival this year they wanted to take a bigger safety precaution. So the staff at Faster Horses would put on add security at this year vent. This would including baggage check, car searches as well as metal detectors.  You may think this was a bit of overboard for the three day festival but for the fans it didn’t bother them whatsoever. The fan took is as that they were being watch out for so they could party hard.

Fasterhorese2018__20180722__JOE_0152__Joe's Photography_Michigaaneventmagazine

They could party as hard they want to all three days with whatever they wanted to drink. As alway the major sponsor of the event Budweiser was on hand selling all the beer you could drink all day long but they weren’t the adult beverage on hand. You could also party with Smirnoff  or even was able to try something new this year was a slushy. For $20 you got yourself a special Faster Horses mug with one of two flavors drink either strawberry or margarita. This would help keep you cool in the warm sun. But if the weather was to warm for yea there was a free water fill station that you could use all festival long to stay hydrate along with cooling station to keep you a little cool as well.

We all know partying is hard work and that beside getting thirsty you might be get a little bit hungry.  There was a good variety of food on hand from hamburger to hot dogs, two different style pizza (one by a store and the other by fire pit oven on the spot), bbq pig roast right on the spot for you to enjoy and a few different food truck (one of which included a grilled cheese gourmet truck).  So there was plenty of food for yea to choose from.

Everything that you could see and do at the event along with eat or drink. The true part of the event that everyone came to see was the music.  This year event was even bigger then ever with music performers. So some 70,000 fans flock to the event to see now only the three main headliner (Blake Shelton, Brook & Dunn,Florida Georgia Line) but the cast of what is call the Next Nashville star. These star would play on the Next Nashville Stage.

So let’s start with the performers on the Next Nashville stage. Friday you were able to see Jamson Rodgers (pm),Austin Burke (1:50pm), Meghan Partrick (2:45pm), Dylan Schneider(3:50pm and then to end friday Next Nashville stage preformers would be Jillian Jaqueline (5:10 pm).

Fasterhorese2018__20180722__JOE_0227__Joe's Photography_Michigaaneventmagazine

The music that played on both stage would range from old style and soul foul country that would fill the heart with warmth to rock-n-roll country that was heart thumping music. This would get the crowd pump up and partying all night long as the main stage would close down and start to open up the after party on  Friday and Saturday with DEE Jay Silver (DJ) down in the next Nashville stage.
