Live Nation’s TrailBlazer Country Music and Camping Festival will see headlining sets from Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan and Thomas Rhett in 2020. Held in Hunter, N.Y., the three-day festival will take place from June 12-14 roughly 100 miles north of New York City.

The full lineup will also include Kelsea Ballerini, Gabby Barrett, Blanco Brown, Clare Dunn, HARDY, Jon Langston, Dylan Scott, Matt Stell, Cole Swindell and The Cadillac Three. More artists are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

“We are beyond thrilled to welcome TrailBlazer into our family of world class Country music festivals in 2020,” said president of Live Nation Country Touring Brian O’Connell in a release. “Our team has been working for months getting to know this festival, and we are looking forward to showing the great Country music fans in New York what we have up our sleeves!”

The 2020 edition of the festival, which was formerly known as Taste of Country Music Festival, joins Live Nation’s premiere family of country music festivals which includes Watershed in Washington, Faster Horses in Michigan, Seven Peaks in Colorado and Tortuga Music Festival in Florida.

The festival’s site, Hunter Mountain Resort, is located in the Catskills and attendees can opt in for glamping and VIP experiences at the scenic venue.
