ENTERTAINMENT

TC KNUCKLEHEADS , 3-5PM

The TC Knuckleheads are a fun-loving group of musicians that play great rhythm and blues, classic and current rock and country. Typical lineup includes several vocalists, lead and acoustic guitar, harmonica, keyboards/sax, drums and bass. They're ready to get the party started!

THE DREW HALE BAND , 5:30-8PM

Throughout Michigan, the name Drew Hale is synonymous with powerful vocals, compelling lyrics and haunting melodies. In 2016, Drew won the national Country Showdown competition held at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, earning him the title Best New Act in Country Music, as well as the $100,000 cash prize. Most recently, The Drew Hale Band won the Detroit Regional round of 93.1 NashFM’s Nash Next contest.

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. 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.



Crystal Mountain asks that you please be responsible about your alcohol 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. Any guests ages 21+ must show valid photo I.D. at admission to the festival. Coolers are not permitted on the festival grounds.
