Jimmie Allen has unveiled the lineup for the second annual Bettie James Fest, set for Aug. 13 at Hudson Fields in Allen’s hometown of Milton, Delaware.
This year’s slate of performers includes We The Kings, Lainey Wilson, Neon Union, Chayce Beckham, JJ Rupp and Kounty. Allen will once again headline the festival, which he established in 2021 in honor of his late grandmother (Bettie Snead) and late father (James Allen). Tickets will go on sale beginning Friday, April 29 at 10 a.m. local.
“Bettie James Fest part two! Bettie James Fest is a music festival that I put on in my hometown of Milton, DE, in honor of my grandma Bettie and father James. It’s a multi-genre day of music, celebrating life and different types of music,” Allen explains.”It’s super fun, and it’s a way for me to come back and dive back into my hometown and bring music here. It’s the one show that I look forward to most every year.”
Two additional opening acts will be selected through a social media contest later this year, with details to come on Allen’s various socials in the coming months. Neon Union and Chayce Beckham are currently special guests on select dates of Allens “Down Home Tour,” which kicked off in February.
