ABOUT BIG O MUSIC FEST:Â Â The annual Big O Music Fest has been a huge part in helping Owensboro, KY become a true destination city. â€œWe sell tickets all over the country, and weâ€˜re very proud of the fact that we bring people to Owensboro, many for the first time, which in turn helps stimulate our local economyâ€ said Terry. Now in its eighth year, the Big O Music Fest has featured top-tier talent from the country/rock music scene. Previous headliners include Jason Aldean, Gary Allan, Randy Houser, Dierks Bentley, Blake Shelton, and Hank Williams Jr. The event will have a true festival atmosphere with food, drinks, t-shirts, and souvenirs, along with attractions such as a mechanical bull and the military â€œPull Up Challenge.â€ And of course, a full day of live entertainment! The promoters bill the show as â€œThe Party of the Year,â€ and with over 12,000 in attendance last year, it would be hard to argue.
