Being from the Chicago area I had only ever heard of the Tailgate N' Tallboys festival that is massive and takes place in Peoria, IL. This years Peoria festival has Florida Georgia Line headlining on Thursday, June 3rd, and Sam Hunt headlining on Friday, June 4th. BUT there is another Tailgate N' Tallboys festival that happens later on in the summer in Taylorville, IL.

The Taylorville, IL Tailgate N Tallboys takes place over three days at the end of July, the exact dates are July 29th through the 31st. Now I know Taylorville isn't exactly close (its about 2 hours from us here at the KICK-FM studio in Quincy) but it's about the same distance as Peoria, and if you are one of our listeners in Pittsfield or anywhere out east towards Springfield then its really not that far! The Taylorville lineup is certainly not as "stacked" as the Peoria lineup, but on Friday the 30th Granger Smith is headlining! For complete ticket information on both of the Tailgate N' Tallboys festivals check out their website by clicking here! 

It's great to see these concerts scheduled and selling tickets, it gives people like me who love going to concerts (especially in the summer outdoors) a lot of hope that there will be plenty of live music concerts across the Tri-States this summer for us all to enjoy! Which Tailgate N' Tallboys fest would you want to check out?
