The 13-hour musical event is known for its national and local performers. This year the band, Dirty Word, will headline the musical fest. Other acts taking the stage are Avid Dischord, LazerWolfe, 5 to Life, and Gabriel Tyce Bruton. This year`s line up is expected to leave the crowd in awe. Also we’ll have, a beer garden, party zone, grandstand seating, 14 food vendors, 70 craft and small business vendors, event souvenirs and t-shirts.
Gates at fairgrounds open at 11am and the event is Rain or shine.
11:00 am to 1:00 pm: Gabriel Tyce Bruton from northwest Kansas, now living in Scotts Bluff County, performs. In addition to writing his own music, he enjoys creatively covering popular radio hits of various genres and decades. He’s most comfortable behind an acoustic guitar and enjoys surprising people with the music he plays.
1:30 pm to 3:30 pm: Avid Dischord Brothers Isaac and Rico Gonzales are the driving force behind Avid Dischord; their sister Celena Becker helping when she can. Since 2011 Avid has had many featured friends and loves to share the stage with anyone who would join them in their “coffee house style” performances.
4:00 pm to 6:30 pm: Lazerwolfe Born unto the wilderness and raised by wolves (Jacob Van Noy-Lead Guitar, Sam Larson-Bass, Brett Lofing-Drums, Dustin Peterson-Rhythm Guitar/Percussion, Jimmy Essay-Keyboard, Darrin Salazar-Lights), these six young men are Lazerwolfe and have lived their lives never knowing fear. They have spent years honing their craft; and choose to honor those that have gone before and embrace the music of the past; paying tribute to such artists as Dire Straits, Bruce Springsteen, Prince, Phis and The Police. If you love it, they have played it!
6:45 pm to 8:45 pm: 5 To Life This ensemble of 6 will move you to your feet with new country, classic and modern rock. 5 to Life has opened for national acts such as Casey Donahew, JB and The Moonshine Band, Jason Boland, and closed the night for Montgomery Gentry, Lee Brice, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Chris Cagle.
Immediately following the “Balloon Night Glow” from 8:00 p.m. to 9:00 pm at the Fairgrounds:
9:00 pm to Midnight: Dirty Word takes the stage to close the day-long festival. Dirty Word is THAT band. The one that leaves audiences on their feet, stunned and literally begging for one more song. Dirty Word’s playlist is a virtual library of hits that leave no genre untouched including top 40 pop, soulful funk groves, rockin’ country and classic rock and pop hits that span five decades. Dirty Word has opened for national acts such as: Styx, BTO, Tesla, Lover Boy, Cheap Trick and Hairball and they have played Kuwait four times and Qatar for New Year’s Event to entertain our troops.
