NEW COUNTRY MUSIC FESTIVAL TO DEBUT IN INDIO
Party in the Pasture California country camping music event set for September 25 – 28
Indio, CA – August 6, 2014
Indio, California, is known worldwide as the City of Festivals, where the experience is as important as the music. Now, in the City of Festivals, there’s a newcomer.
Based on huge demand, one RV resort has decided to throw its own music festival. Shadow Hills RV Resort in Indio has unveiled plans for Party in the Pasture, a 3-day camping and music festival this September.
“The festival camping has been a huge success for us and our guests want more,” said Paula Turner, co-owner of the resort, “So we decided, why wait another year? We’ll throw a party for them.”
Party in the Pasture runs from Friday, September 26 through Sunday, September 28. Reservations start at $100 which include up to four days of camping and admission to all performances. There’s a main stage in the pasture – four acres of grassy field – and for more intimate performances an indoor, acoustic lounge hosted by veteran musician and radio personality Brad Mercer. Some artists will camp as well, giving guests lots of opportunity to interact with them.
The inaugural event will feature live country music performances from rising stars along with regional country bands and Coachella Valley finalist from the 33rd annual Country Showdown. Twenty-three performers and counting are slated to perform; the full line up can be found at partyinthepasture.net.
“We decided to celebrate the bands and singers that perform in Southern California,” said David Turner, co-owner of Shadow Hills Rv Resort. “If you frequent any of the honkytonks, country bars or events in Southern California, you’ll recognize many of the artists we have performing. Our artists are great musicians and know how to show people a good time.”
Party in the Pasture also features a 40-square-foot hay bale pool and outdoor barn-style dance floor. Campers can enjoy the main stage performances from their campsite, the hay bale pool or by bringing their camp chairs to the stage. Food and beverage vendors will be onsite or campers may bring their own. The event is being sponsored by the Ernie Ball Music Man and 92.1 Kix Hot Country Radio.
