Keloorah Announcement

A Thousand Horses and Drake White and The Big Fire added to Keloorah Lineup


The lineup for Keloorah in August just got bigger. A Thousand Horses and Drake White and The Big Fire have been added to an already jammed packed festival schedule on August 26-27.

The two acts join country music favorites Chase Rice, Chase Bryant, Kip Moore and Tim Dugger at Keloorah during the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series weekend at Michigan International Speedway.

“We are excited to have A Thousand Horses and Drake White and The Big Fire join our already impressive list of country music performers in August,” MIS President Roger Curtis said. “NASCAR is more than a race. It is a festival, which is exactly what we have for fans in Keloorah.”

Keloorah is a unique concept. It’s a two-day music festival that takes place on Friday and Saturday during the August 26-28 NASCAR weekend at MIS. The talent lineup combined with unparalleled activities at the festival such as go karts, an arcade and paint and foam deejay party elevates the post-race fun.

The lineup for Keloorah is impressive and will give NASCAR fans and music festival fans an experience to remember.

Keloorah ticket packages that include a NASCAR ticket for the Pure Michigan 400 on Aug. 28 start at $60.

NASCAR fans who already have a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series ticket for Aug. 28 can add a two-day Keloorah festival ticket for $30.

VIP upgrade tickets for special access are also available.

Once inside Keloorah gates, all activities at the festival are FREE.

Other activities include paint ball, cornhole tournaments hosted by and a paint and foam deejay party between acts.

Dark Horse Brewery has set up a viewing deck for craft beer and a great view of the stage. There’s also a sports bar.

Ford has opened a hospitality area for guests to experience a NASCAR simulator in a Roush Fenway Racing stock car. All Ford owners can recharge their phones, post all the latest on social media with the free Wi-Fi and enjoy water for free in a special hospitality area.

Guests can also play a life-sized game of Battle Shots and eat some s’mores.

Thanks to great partners like Ford, Smirnoff Electric Ice, Red Bull, Stoli, Arcadia Ales, Dark Horse Brewery, Founders Brewery, North Peak Brewing Company and Music Choice for helping MIS make Keloorah a fun, post-race festival.
