On Saturday, September 14th, Koe Wetzel pulled into Panther Island Pavilion in Fort Worth, Texas, and some 10,138 tickets and one epic show later, Koe’s Incredible Music Festival was yet again, another massive success. Featuring support from Parker McCollum, Cody Canada & the Departed, and Chris Colston, the one-day festival included a 50’ inflatable water slide, a 52’ tall Ferris wheel, a mechanical bull, free mustache rides and a 4 minute long fireworks show to close out the night. Additionally, a portion of the proceeds were donated to the Bowen Family Foundation.
As an independent country artist, Koe Wetzel is doing the kind of shit that many major label country artists dream about. Even if you have a handful of #1 singles on country radio, selling 10,000 tickets in one night is extremely HARD to do. In fact, many artists struggle to sell out a thousand person club, let alone a 10,000 seat venue like Panther Island.
Take notes Nashville. That’s how it’s done.
Whiskey Riff is the most entertaining country site…ever.
