The 2015 country-music concert event season seems destined for a solid success with the announcement of the new two-day Shaky Boots Festival near Atlanta, featuring appearances from Blake Shelton, Brad Paisley, Dierks Bentley, Jason Isbell and several more big Nashville names.
The inaugural event will take place May 16-17 at the KSU Sports and Entertainment Park in Kennesaw, just north of the Georgia capital, and also include performances from Rascal Flatts, the Band Perry, Dwight Yoakam, Sara Evans, Kristian Bush, Joe Nichols, Old Crow Medicine Show, Justin Moore, Eli Young Band, Kip Moore, Jana Kramer, Josh Thompson and more than a dozen additional acts on three stages throughout the festival. Shaky Boots is the sister festival to Atlanta’s Shaky Knees rock festival, which takes place one week prior to the debut event.
Two-day weekend passes for the festival will go on sale at www.shakyboots.com this Thursday, January 8th, starting at $169 with applicable service fees. VIP Ticket packages (at $499) will include access to exclusive lounges and viewing areas; catered lunches and dinners; complimentary beer; and access to private restrooms and cash liquor bars. Exclusive luxury suites are also available.
The Shaky Knees and Shaky Boots festivals make up one of three major rock and country cousin events in 2015. This is the ninth year that Coachella and Stagecoach will share the same California desert venue, separated by just one week in April. And the producers of Delaware’s annual Firefly Festival have announced the new Big Barrel music festival, which boasts Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton as its first headliners this June.
