Country superstar Eric Church to headline the Pendleton Whisky Music Fest
Pendleton® Whisky Music Fest announced today that the 5th Annual Music Fest will feature current GRAMMY nominee Eric Church and a performance by global sensation Macklemore. Tickets will go on sale in early February following the release of the full artist line-up. The two superstars are expected to bring a large crowd as fans flock to one of the most historic festival sites in the U.S., the Pendleton Round-Up Grounds.
The two performers will hit the stage on Saturday, July 11th, bringing a unique and exciting show to the Pacific Northwest. Eric Church is a three-time Country Music Association and six-time Academy of Country Music Award winner who released his critically acclaimed album Desperate Man atop the Billboard Country Albums chart in late 2018. The album, featuring his most recent No. 1 hit “Some Of It,” and current single “Monsters,” also debuted at No. 5 on the all-genre Billboard 200.
Grammy award-winning artist Macklemore will also take the stage to perform several Billboard hits and wow the crowd with his high energy show.
“This is our five-year anniversary and we couldn’t be more excited to return to our popular multi-genre lineup with Eric Church and Macklemore,” said Andy McAnally, Pendleton Whisky Music Fest co-organizer. “It is a unique event that brings some of the world’s top acts to a historical venue in the heart of Oregon. Its continued success is proof that we have hit on something special and we look forward to welcoming Eric Church and Macklemore in July.”
Over its four-year history, the Pendleton Whisky Music Fest has featured some of the biggest names in the music industry including Maroon 5, Blake Shelton, Post Malone, Zac Brown Band and Pitbull. In 2020, the event organizers are going back to its popular multi-genre artist format, bringing a crossover blend of music with wide appeal to one of the gems of the Pacific Northwest, Pendleton, Oregon.
The event will also continue its popular Friday night kick-off party on Main Street to ensure the 5th Annual Pendleton Whisky Music Fest is a weekend to remember.
