Entertainment

Drew Hale Band - Time: 3-5pm
Influenced by Texas roots and artists such as Reckless Kelly and Eric Church, the Drew Hale Band’s music pays homage to the red dirt country and southern rock scenes, as well as paints a picture of their love for the people and culture of Michigan, where the band calls home. They have shared stages and played festivals with some of Nashville’s biggest recording artists, including Tim McGraw, Dierks Bentley, Trace Adkins, Toby Keith, and more. You can count on an eclectic show that delivers a dynamic combination of originals and covers that bridge the gap between country, roots rock, and blues.

The Rock Show Band - Time: 5:30-8pm
Mirroring the look and bombast of Journey in its 1980s heyday, The Rock Show Band takes fans on a sojourn through the greatest hits of the Steve Perry era. The song list timewarps to the golden days of shoulder pads and leopard prints as the band loves, touches, and squeezes out all the greatest hits. Their flashy fun performances are sure to keep you on your feet all night!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Camp & Craft Childcare - 4-8pm: $49
Let our Camp & Crafts program entertain your child while you Beer and Brat! This childcare program is open to children ages 12 and under. Camp and Crafts program includes age appropriate crafts and games. Dinner included : Hot dogs, chips and watermelon.

Crystal Mountain asks that you please be responsible about your alcoholic consumption. We encourage our guests to assign a designated driver or use on-property shuttles when leaving the festival. Cars left overnight will not be ticketed or towed. Those who chose not to drink at the festival will still have to pay the same price for admission as those who are drinking. All attendees have access to a lineup of musical talent, food and beverage vendors, merchandise, festival activities and prizes. For this reason, discounted tickets are not available.
