Country Thunder 2024 main

Howdy, country music lovers! If you missed out on the whirlwind of fun at Country Thunder 2024 in Florence, Arizona, don’t worry, because I’ve got you covered with a recap of all the excitement. From winning tickets to meeting some of our favorite artists, here’s a rundown of my unforgettable experience at this year’s festival.

Winning Big with KMLE Country

It all started with a stroke of luck when we won 30 Days of Thunder at Gila River Resorts and Casinos courtesy of KMLE Country. After picking up our wristbands from the KMLE Country studio in Phoenix and downloading the Country Thunder Phone Application, we were ready to kick off the ultimate country music weekend.

Packing Essentials and Pro Tips

Before heading to the festival grounds, we made sure to pack all the essentials: a clear backpack, water, a small blanket, and, of course, outfits for each day’s theme. Pro tip: don’t forget your sunblock and bug spray – Arizona sun can be brutal!

Navigating the Grounds

The Country Thunder app was our go-to guide for navigating the festival grounds. From the schedule of events to maps of the campgrounds and main stage, this app had it all. Plus, we could even set reminders for our favorite acts and explore points of interest around the venue.

Location, Parking, and Entrance

Located at 20585 E Water Way in Florence, AZ, getting to Country Thunder was a breeze – well, almost. We budgeted extra time for traffic and parking, but thanks to arriving early, we snagged a prime spot in general parking. And with the option to purchase a golf cart ride to the main gate, we were off to a smooth start.

Exploring the Gila River Resorts and Casinos Area

Once inside, we headed straight for the Gila River Resorts and Casinos area, where we rubbed elbows with fellow country music enthusiasts and even had the chance to meet some of our favorite artists like Halle Kearns, Avery Anna, Stephen Wilson Jr., Flatland Calvary, and Lainey Wilson. With plenty of shade, seating, and portable toilets nearby, this was our go-to spot for chilling between sets.

Daily Themes and Meet & Greets

Each day brought a new theme to the festival grounds, and we fully embraced Thursday’s Wildflowers theme with our best floral attire. Plus, thanks to the Country Thunder app, we scored meet and greet passes and got to chat with some of the incredible talent gracing the main stage.

Rocking Out to the Lineup

Speaking of the main stage, Thursday’s lineup was nothing short of epic. From Kyle McKearney’s soulful tunes to Lainey Wilson’s powerhouse performance, every act brought their A-game and kept the crowd on their feet all night long.
