About the Wild Horses Music Festival

This will be the third festival in its history, presented by Outriders. Outriders also produces the annual Country Stampede festival in Manhattan, Kansas, and will host a Rodeo at Petco Park in 2024. Last year’s Wild Horses Fest was a two-day country music festival also held at Petco Park, on September 24 and 25, 2022. The festival featured an eclectic lineup of country music artists, including Cody Jinks, Midland, LeAnn Rimes, Whiskey Myers, Colter Wall, and more. The festival was a sell-out, with over 40,000 people in attendance over the two days. Cody Jinks, who headlined the festival on Saturday night, said that it was “one of the best crowds I’ve ever played for.”

Signed to Rounder Records in 2018, she gained attention through her YouTube channel, captivating viewers with covers and live performances.
