Tickets are now on sale for the inaugural Fire on the Water Music festival.
A max of 3,500 tickets are available and 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.
The music festival will take place on Saturday August 18, at the lake at Lock 4 in Gallatin from noon until 11 p.m.
Sumner County Tourism Executive Director Barry Young is excited about the new festival.
“We are thrilled to partner with the city of Gallatin, the Gallatin Chamber and several others to bring a quality music festival to Sumner County,” Young said. “Coming off the eclipse, we feel the time is right for a music festival. As a matter of fact, it will take place almost exactly one year after the eclipse. And the Lock 4 venue with Old Hickory Lake as a backdrop will set us apart from other music festivals in the region.”
Gallatin Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Kim Baker says they are hoping to attract both residents and visitors to Gallatin for the day.
“We know that people want to enjoy great live shows, and there’s absolutely no reason that can’t be done in Gallatin, Tennessee,” Baker said. “We have a beautiful lakefront location that will serve well for a day-long music festival with a large variety of artists… bluegrass, indie, rock, Americana, and who knows, maybe even some electronic.”
The festival will feature two stages of music that will represent many genres 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 have 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.
The lineup for the entertainment should be announced in the coming weeks.
