Country Thunder!


With all this talk about Festivals in my last post and the great Spring Time weather that is bestowed on us Arizonans, another great Musical Weekend is sure to be mentioned and given it’s fair share of credit.  While people have mixed feelings on Country Music there are many of us who appreciate the genre and show it mad respect!  For those of us that would love no other than to attend an awesome weekend filled with that music, and also a little bit of camping before the weather reaches scorching temperatures welcome COUNTRY THUNDER!!

Country Thunder is a four day festival that starts on April 6 and goes through the 9th, located in Florence, Arizona.  Festival attendees are encouraged to get a camping permit along with their admission tickets, to camp on the premises.  Those that camp are in for a weekend full of drinks, fun, campfires, laughter and great music!  Many bring RV’s or camping trailers along to add a bit of comfort and a reprieve from the constant partying going on around them. It’s almost like a tailgating party that lasts for 4 days!

The festival line up is well worth your money and the 4 days you probably had to take off of work.  With this years ensemble featuring famous musicians along the lines of, Dierks Bentley, Blake Shelton, Thomas Rhett and Frankie Ballard to name a few, you Country fans will be in heaven!

Not so big on camping in the outdoors or in a cramped trailer?  You can go Glamping at this festival.  Glamping which is glamours camping includes a erected Safari style tent, a queen or twin beds, air-conditioning, vinyl flooring, table and chairs and a refrigerator!!!  They have thought of everything to make these 4 days nothing short of luxurious or as luxurious as camping can get!  As a matter of fact this festival is so popular here in Arizona that people purchase their tickets months and even a year in advance.  Same goes for the camp sites offered on the site grounds.  To obtain a camping permit you have to plan and purchase them in advance.  

There are so many types of music genres that can be made to be fun to explore.  If you want to explore the different types I always suggest attending different music festivals.  Whether it be a smaller one or the grandest of them all, music festivals are a great getaway, and fun filled time.  You basically live your life to music for a string of days enjoying the experience and the people and fun to be had along with it.  Make this your year of festivals!  Rock on as always my friends.
