Michigan International Speedway is betting that country, rather than rock, will be the ticket to bring music to Brooklyn this summer.
After a rocky experience with MI Fest in 2011, MIS will host Faster Horses, a three-day country music and camping festival, July 19-21. The festival's official web site has been activated at www.fasterhorsesfestival.com, with an announcement of acts and ticket details at 8 a.m. on Monday, Feb. 17.
Live Nation is promoting and producing Faster Horses. It will be the summer's second large-scale country festival, following the annual WYCD Downtown Hoedown, taking place May 31-June 2 this year at Comerica Park.
