FILER, Idaho – Gordy’s HWY 30 Music Fest returns to Filer in June. The event, which now lasts four days, is expected to attract around 30,000 music lovers from across the country.
The HWY 30 Music Fest, known as “The People’s Festival,” began with around 1,000 attendees. This summer marks the ninth year for the Filer event, which is expecting its biggest music festival yet.
“HWY 30 Music Fest 2022 is going to be one for the books. The lineup is amazing,” said Gordy Schroeder, also known as Chief Night Concierge and creator of HWY 30 Music Fest.
The lineup includes country and rock headliners, along with local musicians and nationally acclaimed artists.
“There are people who meet here once a year and they come from all over the United States of America… They come here, they camp, they bring their area together and come together as one big community,” Schroeder said.
Holding the annual event in Filer brings live music to locals while creating a family of music enthusiasts.
“I took my grandkids a few years ago and taught them what it’s like to appreciate music through and through, and they got to meet some of the band members. That’s one of the good things about this festival, often the bands come out and they interact with the fans and it’s more personal,” said Cricket Stirling, music fan and festival sponsor.
The festival takes place at the Twin Falls County Fairgrounds June 22-25.
All ages are welcome. See the program and tickets here.
“Good place, bring your kids, bring your family, bring your friends and have a great time,” said Scott Trappen, music fan and HWY 30 Music Fest crew member.
