Previously we highlighted both the Wednesday WE Fest Kick Off Party headlining Colt Ford and featuring Levi Riggs with Boomtown, and the Thursday Line Up headlining Jason Aldean with openers Luke Bryan, John Anderson, Colt Ford and Rocket Club. What a perfect way to start the celebration for our 30th Anniversary WE Fest - "Lovin' Your Country!"

The celebration continues Friday.

Concert Bowl Gates open at 2pm: Be sure to be in line for the running of the chairs and remember the first 10,000 WE Fest Fans to enter the Concert Bowl Gates will receive a 30th Anniversary WE Fest Collectable (different novelty item to be distributed each day). Also be sure to sign up to WIN valuable prizes from our Sponsors. Stop by the Miller Lite Beer Booth #2 on the east side of the Venue and join the Miller Lite Bean Bag Toss Tournament.

You might as well come hungry and grab some great food to go with a cold Miller Lite from one of our many Food Vendors. For those that love to shop, be sure to come in early to beat the lines and get the very best variety and deals available as you experience our many great Shopping Vendors.

Ranch House Saloon and Patio also open at 2pm: Another great opportunity to grab a cold Miller Lite and check out the WE Fest Walk of Fame featuring hundreds of hand prints in cement from 30 years of Stars that have played the Soo Pass Ranch. Find your favorite Artist and put your hands in their Prints.

Make sure you get to the Lakeshirts WE Fest Merchandise Booth before the show starts and buy your 30th Anniversary commemorative "red" WE Fest Mug. This is WE Fest's version of the "Red Solo Cup" as Toby Keith will take the Main Stage as Friday night's Headliner.

Getting the party started on the Stage for Toby Keith and a great surprise for our WE Fest Fans is Steve Martin & the Steep Canyon Rangers. Known for his comedy and movie roles, Steve Martin is a world renowned banjo player and is sure to keep the party going as they entertain us with their great pickin' and singin'!

Also featured on the Main Stage Friday are: Brantley Gilbert, Miss Willie Brown, and Hitchville.

Following this great show on the Main Stage and heading to the Barn Stage will be Hitchville closing the night out and entertaining our Fans at the Ranch House Saloon and Patio Area.

Once the adrenaline settles from this great day of music and fun, be sure to get a good night's rest...WE STILL HAVE ONE MORE DAY LEFT!
