Fans craving for some entertainment to compliment the thunder of a NASCAR engine will be in luck this summer as Atlanta Motor Speedway announces the inaugural Revs & Riffs NASCAR Weekend Music Festival, July 8 – 10. The weekend-long music festival will run in conjunction with the Quaker State 400 Presented by Walmart NASCAR weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway, featuring performances across a variety of musical genres paired with the on-track action designed to fuel fan’s need for speed. The first-time festival will feature GRAMMY-nominated rapper Flo Rida, alternative music stalwarts Candlebox, Atlanta-based rock act Blackberry Smoke, and more.
Flo Rida, known for chart-topping hits like “My House,” “Whistle,” and “Low,”
will be Revs & Riffs NASCAR Weekend Music Festival headliner, performing the pre-race concert on Sunday, July 10. Fans with pre-race pit passes will get stage-front access to Flo Rida’s concert and driver introductions before the Quaker State 400 Presented by Walmart. In addition, multi-Platinum rockers Candlebox, known for chart-topping hits like “Far Behind” and “You,” will perform a pre-race concert on Atlanta Motor Speedway’s front stretch on Saturday, July 9, ahead of the Alsco Uniforms 250 NASCAR Xfinity Series race. All grandstand ticketholders will have pre-race stage access for the concert and Xfinity Series driver introductions on a first-come, first-served basis. Finally, after the race in the Peach Pit on Saturday, July 9, hometown favorites Blackberry Smoke will keep things rocking in the free world. Additionally, a collection of genre-fluid musical acts will support the performances throughout the three-day festival.
“With all kinds of music to enjoy from rock to country off the track and two thrilling races on it, there’s never been a better time to experience NASCAR in Atlanta,” said AMS Executive Vice President and General Manager Brandon Hutchison.
The massive music festival will complement the slate of on-track action during Atlanta Motor Speedway’s summer NASCAR weekend. First, the rising stars of the NASCAR Xfinity Series hit the high banks on Saturday, July 9, for the Alsco Uniforms 250.
