The excitement is building ahead of Gallatin’s first Fire on the Water Festival lineup announcement on Tuesday night.
After many months of speculation, the lineup reveal will take place on the Fire on the Water Festival Facebook Page. They will go live with the announcement at 8 p.m. Sumner Home Page will also have coverage of the big announcement.
The music festival will take place on Saturday August 18, at the lake at Lock 4 in Gallatin from noon until 11 p.m.
Gallatin Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Kim Baker says the lineup is diverse and strong for Gallatin’s first music festival.
“We know that the lineup is key for many to make a ticket purchase and has been long anticipated,” Baker said. “We wanted to wait until the time was right, and that time has arrived! We feel that the festival lineup will be well-received and enjoyed by all who attend.”
Many genres of music are expected to be apart of the lineup as the festival will feature two stages of music. Other types of entertainment include performers of Beyond Wings which is a circus company that includes an elite group of professional fire dancers, aerialist flyers, and glow LED acts.
Several food trucks are already confirmed for the festival including Cousins Maine Lobster, The Grilled Cheeserie, Banh, Mi & Roll Factory, Music City Brisket, Hoss Loaded Burgers, Retro Sno, and Fruit Tea Chicks.
Tickets can be purchased at www.fireonthewaterfestival.com. Tickets start at $25 with two types of parking tickets that will be sold separately. Children age five and under are admitted at no charge.
