The inaugural Faster Horses Festival drew more than 20,000 fans and featured headliners Dierks Bentley , Luke Bryan  and Jason Aldean  among others. The festival took place in the Irish hills of Brooklyn, Michigan over the weekend.
“The Faster Horses crowd is dominated by high-spirited and fresh-faced twentysomethings — college kids on summer break, suburbanites from Detroit and Grand Rapids, and fans you might very well spot at next month’s Jay Z – Justin Timberlake show,” said a reviewer for the Detroit Free Press. “This is their scene, and this music — including fest headliners Bentley, Luke Bryan (Saturday) and Jason Aldean (Sunday) — is their party soundtrack.”
Dierks headlined Friday night’s show, kicking off the weekend with a fiery, action-packed set. Luke Bryan headlined Saturday’s show. “Being a part of the first Faster Horses festival was a blast,” Luke said. “The energy level of that crowd was through the roof. You would have never known it was the first year!”
Jason Aldean closed out the festival on Sunday. “Our expectations for the first year were blown away by a long shot,” Brian O’Connell, President of Live Nation, Nashville, said. “The fans came ready to party and settled in for a weekend of amazing performances. Our goal is to keep coming back year after year and make this a summer staple, I think we’re off to a good start.”
