The Faster Horses Festival in Brooklyn, Michigan, raced to yet another successful run over the weekend, with 40,000 fans enjoying three days of jam-packed concerts.

Celebrating its sixth year, the festival kicked off on Friday night with headliner Blake Shelton, who took the stage following a short weather delay. Saturday night highlights included a rousing set from Brooks & Dunn, who made their first debut together at the festival due to huge fan demand.

Sunday the event closed on a high with a full-energy show from Florida Georgia Line. Along with the music, fans embraced all that the festival has to offer, including the Campsite Contest, DeeJay Silver’s Pancake Party, Faster Humans Fun Run, Hustle & Muscle Classic Car & Truck Show and more.

For the first time ever, in addition to the lineup of artists including Jillian Jacqueline, Jon Langston and Charlie Worsham, the Next From Nashville stage welcomed a “Songwriters Storyjam” with The Warren Brothers, J.T.
