“We’ve been wanting to bring Country Thunder to this part of the world for some time, and we’re thrilled for this opportunity,” said Country Thunder Music Festival CEO Troy Vollhoffer. 

With three days of live performances, there’s music for every country-lover to enjoy. The festival’s headliners already include a lineup of big name stars like Luke Combs, Toby Keith and Luke Bryan, with even more to be announced at a later date. 

General admission passes for Country Thunder will be available, plus reserved seating, platinum, camping, glamping and more.

And, for the first time ever, a country music festival will take place simultaneously as a rodeo. 

The RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo will happen during the same weekend. This tournament-style competition event challenges athletes from all 12 circuits to compete in the preliminary rounds of the rodeo. As contestants advance, event winners receive a $20,000 voucher for a new RAM vehicle, a Polaris RANGER UTV, a pair of exotic boots from Justin Boots, trophy saddle from Cactus Saddlery and a Montana Silversmith buckle, in addition to their winnings. 

“The pairing of Country Thunder Florida and the RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo maximizes the value for fans and promises a new level of entertainment for everyone,” said Osceola County Commission Chairman Fred Hawkins Jr. “This is yet another step in making Osceola County a destination for a great country music and rodeo experience.”
