Southern California’s most unique country music experience Tailgate Fest has almost doubled in size and entertainment-factor with the addition of four new musical acts to its 2019 lineup.
To be held at the Leal Ranch in Eastvale, CA (just an hour east of Los Angeles), festival goers will have even more land to roam than last year, and the perfect grounds on which to stomp their boots. Tailgate Fest is pleased to reveal a new batch of musical artists to join this year’s already stellar lineup. Clint Black, Big Boi, Hardy, and King Calaway will join the likes of Brantley Gilbert, Brett Eldridge, Lee Brice, Tyler Farr, Lyndsay Ell, LoCash, and RaeLynn at the second annual event. Attendees will enjoy two days of nonstop entertainment between August 17-18, all from the comfort of their own truck-side havens. Centered around the iconic pre-party experience that comes as second nature to country music fans, Tailgate Fest aims to bridge the gap between celebration and relaxation, all wrapped up with a down home ranch feel.
“Tailgating was the thing that I loved to do when I wasn’t working,” festival creator Melissa Carbone tells Billboard Magazine. “I got submerged in the tailgating culture for years and I hated throwing everything into my pockets and going into an arena and sitting in an uncomfortable chair and eating warm hot dogs and drinking lukewarm beer when I was just outside tailgating with all my friends with ice cold coolers and barbecuing and playing games. I thought how great would it be if I could stay here and bring the stages truck-side?
“Tailgate Fest is a not just a festival,” says Carbone, “it’s a world where we think about the way these passionate fans want to consume their experience. How hard is it to leave a hotel pool party to get on a shuttle and trek 30 minutes to get to a festival? That would bum me out! At Tailgate Fest, the pool party is at the side of the stage because why not have both? From the elaborate tailgating creations to the side-stage swimming pool to a stellar line up, and oh yeah – building the entire thing on a real life sprawling ranch, we are focused on giving fans an experience they can’t find anywhere else.”

bout Tailgate Fest
Tailgate Fest is the first country music festival that caters to the fans who show up hours before the concert to pop a top, drop a tailgate and turn the parking lot…or in our case, hundreds of acres of lush green grass… into the party.
Stay where you are…we are bringing your music to you.
Tailgate Fest brings the stages outside to the tailgate. No packing up the party to head inside, no need to stop that game of cornhole, no need to stuff all your belongings in your pockets or grab sweaters and extras to last you the evening.
Tailgating can continue throughout the whole festival as fans can watch their favorite performers from their personal party set ups at their vehicles.
DON’T WANT TO TAILGATE? NO PROBLEM!
For some fans who are “Country AF” but don’t want to tailgate, General Admission Stageside, Pit Passes or even our sidestage POOL viewing platform offer the more traditional experience to get up close to the stage. Yes, we said “pool.” A limited number of people can secure a SUPER VIP pass to kick back with their favorite beverage and plant their asses in the pool while watching the best Country music has to offer.
The ultimate fan experience – YOUR food, YOUR drinks, YOUR kind of Country Music Festival
