The organizers responsible for the CMC Rocks festival have released a comprehensive map for attendees to reference before the event, which will take place from Friday, March 15 to Sunday, March 17. The map highlights the expanded areas of the festival, including food stalls, bars, markets, activities, and additional space. This year, festival-goers can look forward to new additions such as the Casamigos Tequila Garden, located in the festival's all-new Tailgate area, as well as the Balter Cerveza Bar and hangout area. Aussie Footy Shorts, a fashion business catering to those with mullets, will also be showcased, with more announcements to come. In addition, artists will be available to sign items at the Music Shop, which is now under the management of Australian brand Maton Guitars. For those in need of a quick beard trim, there will even be a Beard Bar available.
CMC Rocks will once again feature its two massive stages, the Stampede Stage and the Rebel Stage, along with the Tailgate Stage. Fan favorites like Great Northern House and Ariat are making a return this year, and the map marks the locations of dining areas, the Beauty Bar, Ferris Wheel, emergency exits and first aid stations, free water stations, market and food stalls, lockers, merchandise stands, slushie stations, and phone charging areas.
The headliners for CMC Rocks 2024 include Lainey Wilson, Chris Young, and Tyler Hubbard. Joining them on stage will be international stars such as Chase Rice, Oliver Anthony, Nate Smith, Megan Moroney, Morgan Wade, Jackson Dean, Priscilla Block, and Elvie Shane. The festival also highlights local talent, with notable performances expected from Brad Cox, Casey Barnes, Taylor Moss, Melanie Dyer, Sara Berki, Josh Setterfield, Loren Ryan, Lane Pittman, and Hayley Marsten.
The event has already sold out, with tickets being completely gone since October. This marks the seventh consecutive year that CMC Rocks has sold out well in advance. Chairman of Chugg Entertainment, Michael Chugg, expressed his gratitude to the loyal CMC Rocks community in a statement, marveling at the overwhelming support. He acknowledged that for many, the festival has become a highlight of their year, offering the opportunity to enjoy the best country music and reunite with lifelong friends made at Willowbank. Chugg eagerly anticipates another year of bringing the community together to celebrate.
