Compton & Newberry are excited to perform on Saturday, Oct. 14, at Hoedown on the Harpeth, held at the beautiful Hayshed Farms in Kingston Springs, Tenn. Conveniently located 20 miles west of downtown Nashville. The festival is being planned for the full moon phase of the month to take advantage of the natural nocturnal light and beautiful full moon.
Two main stages in the main field, backed up to the Harpeth River, are the heart of the festival and will host the musical artists. They will be close to each other for convenience, and acts will complement but not overlap. Tents set up along the main thoroughfares will invite guests to review acoustic bands.
These tents will have different themes and decorations. A “Pickin’” area on the river behind the main stage, and other “pickin’” areas – spontaneous and/or planned – will offer spaces for acoustic musicians to gather and play throughout the night in impromptu jam sessions. Their presence will add to the timeless atmosphere of the country music festival experience.
Food trucks and beverage tents representing Nashville’s best southern fare will also be stationed along the main drives for the convenience of guests. Vendors of arts and crafts will be selected for their authentic country wares, relevance to the history of country music and of Nashville, and will be interspersed among the food vendors and the music tents.
A family-friendly area will host arts and crafts for children, hay rides, games and music workshops for young musicians.
Camping will be divided into different areas to accommodate RV campers with generators, tent campers, late night pickers, and quiet family areas. Artists and their guests will be offered a private, separate camping area.
Other activities offered will include, but are not limited to, games, street buskers and performers, workshops, and general pickin’ and grinnin’.
