When moving the three-day concert from the Louisville Slugger Sports Complex in Peoria to its new location, USA Concerts President Wayne Klein cited the added feature of camping for patrons. 

“Our goal after having to move the festival was to find a place with camping, so that’s where we ended up,” said Klein. “We looked all over [in Peoria], but we couldn’t find a place that had camping.”

The USA Concerts run event will include several stages across three days– and if past runs of the Tailgate N’ Tallboys Festival is any indication, it’ll be a hit. The festival has been named Central Illinois’ top country music festival for the last five years. In previous years, acts like Florida Georgia Line, Sam Hunt, Kid Rock, and Willie Nelson have rocked the Tailgate N’ Tallboys stages.

What Ticket Options Are Available?

Tickets are on sale now, with several different tiers and packages available. While there are both “Flex” passes and “VIP” passes, the Flex option offers room for attendees who don’t wish to attend all three days. “With the GA Flex Ticket, you will have the flexibility of getting (3) single-day tickets and will be able to split up your tickets if different people want to go on different days,” the festival explained on Facebook. “This does mean that you will have to show up at the main gate each night to get your wristbands.”

There are also several options for campers, including RV camping, tent camping, and early entry campsite passes. Camping isn’t required for the festival, but is certainly a fun option! Regardless of how you choose to enjoy the Tailgate N’ Tallboys festival, it’s sure to be an action-packed weekend.
