Country Throwdown Tour In The Works

The brains behind the Vans Warped Tour are getting together a Country tour for this summer.

Montgomery Gentry will headline 4 FINI, Inc.’s first Country Throwdown Tour, running May 13 through June 20. Also set for the amphitheater run are Jamey Johnson, Little Big Town, Jack Ingram, Eric Church, the Eli Young Band, Jonathan Singleton & The Grove, Lost Trailers, Ryan Bingham and Emily West.

As producers and creators of the Warped Tour, 4 FINI, Inc. has made it the longest running traveling music and extreme sports festival in the world. Country Throwdown will be set-up much like the Warped Tour, there will be multiple stages, pre-show tailgating parties, and a full concourse of lifestyle attractions and vendors. Kevin Lyman is the tour founder and co-producer.

In addition to the 12 main artists performing on three stages (one main stage and two side stages), the Bluebird Café Tent will feature nine singer-songwriters. Fans will get to see these artists perform in-the-round throughout the day, and during the main stage set changes at night.

To spur ticket sales, organizers are offering the Throwdown Ticket Takeover. Instead of the traditional front-to-back tiered ticketing–where fans who pay more get closer–the special deal will split the seats down the middle. For a limited time during the pre-sale which begins February 2010, anyone who buys early can get the Ticket Takeover priced ticket and be as close as the front row. Regular tiered ticketing will still be available for purchase for half of the amphitheater seating. More artists and a title sponsor will soon be announced.
