Supreme Court Rules NHMS Can Have A Country Music Festival
The process to host such an event was nearly two years in the making.
Country music fans rejoiced Monday, as it was announced a three day country music festival could take place on the grounds of New Hampshire Motor Speedway. The event, to be held as officials work to replace a NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series date which moved to Las vegas last year wasn't initially cleared. However, according to a press release, the Supreme Court determined that it did not need to issue a formal order and affirmed the decision from the Superior Court.
Executive vice president and general manager of New Hampshire Motor Speedway David McGrath said in a statement "This is absolutely terrific news for music fans, local businesses and for tourism in the Capitol Region, and we are preparing to move full-steam ahead.” "We have our approvals from the Town of Loudon, and we are ecstatic to move forward. This has been a long time in the making, and we cannot wait to put on one heck of a show.”
A specific date for the event isn't yet clear. McGrath tells music fans to “stay tuned.” The country music festival will be held in the S6 Lot of NHMS property as originally proposed and approved.
