Country star Eric Church and rapper Macklemore will take the stage at next year’s annual Pendleton Whisky Music Fest.
The music festival, which is heading into its fifth year, will take place on July 11, 2020 in Pendleton, Oregon at one of the most historic festival sites in the U.S. – the Pendleton Round-Up Grounds, which is known as one of the country’s most iconic rodeos. Over the past two years, the fest has brought in sold-out crowds, and this year, the festivities will continue.
Church, a three time Country Music Association and six-time Academy of Country Music Award winner, reached chart-topping numbers with his 2018 record Desperate Man in 2018. He’s risen to fame with tracks like “Drink In My Hand,” “Some of It,” and “Record Year.” Macklemore, best-known hits “Can’t Hold Us,” “Thrift Shop,” and “Downtown,” last released the record This Unruly Mess I’ve Made in 2016, garnering attention with his quick raps and Ryan Lewis’ booming instrumentals.
Pendleton Whisky Music Fest co-organizer Andy McAnally said in a press release that he’s excited to return to the fests’ multi-genre lineup with Church and Macklemore in 2020. Previously, they’ve hosted artists like Maroon 5, Blake Shelton, Post Malone, and Pitbull; in 2020, they’re returning to their original multi-genre format to appeal to more music fans.
“It’s a unique event that brings some of the world’s top acts to a historical venue in the heart of Oregon,” he said. “Its continued success is proof that we have hit on something special and we look forward to welcoming Eric Church and Macklemore in July.”
Aside from the music, fans can enjoy Pendleton Whisky, wine, and a variety of food trucks. They’ll also have the opportunity to camp on the grounds, if they choose. Ahead of the show, concertgoers can prepare with the party on Main Street on Friday, July 10.
The full artist line-up will be announced by the end of January, and tickets head on sale in early February. For more information about the fest, visit PendletonWhiskyMusicFest.com.
