It’s time to kick off summer with the Red Stone Music Festival on June 6. The boot stomping event will feature an all-star line up of Texas country singers, venders and activities on Sulphur Springs Celebration Plaza.
“This is the first time we are going to be putting on this music festival in connection with the city of Sulphur Springs. The city has been wonderful in helping us out and making sure this event happens,” said Kadi Hanes, East Texas Radio’s Texas Music Hour host. “The event will include four Texas music artists, and I think they are all A-listers and are doing great on the music scene right now.”
JB and the Moonshine Band, Curtis Grimes, Rich O’Toole and Sam Riggs will all be playing throughout the evening.
“Our first act will begin at 4 p.m. with Sam Riggs followed by Rich O’Toole. Finishing off the evening, we will have two East Texas-born and-raised acts with Curtis Grimes and JB and the Moonshine Band,” said Hanes. “All of the artists have had a number one on the Texas music charts so they are all going to put on a great show.”
East Texas Radio is hosting the event, which includes stations Star Country 95.9, KPLT Classic Country 1490 AM and KOYN 93.9 FM.
“All of our country stations are helping put this together,” said Hanes. “We have tickets on sale at any of our radio stations or at outhousetickets.com. Advance tickets are $12 or, if purchased online, there is an additional $2.50 transaction fee. If you show up at the gate, they will be $17. One of the great things about this concert this year is we will be able to take credit cards at the gate.”
The festival will end around 10 p.m., although the venue is scheduled through midnight.
“There will be venders at the event and I believe that Budweiser will be providing the alcohol,” said Hanes.
