The Kentucky Lake CVB, along with headlining sponsors HiTec Outdoors, TVA, Calloway County Tourist Commission, and The Lakehouse Inn at Sledd Creek, announce a new music festival, the Mayday Music Mashup, this Memorial Day weekend. This music festival will take place May 26-27 at Kenlake State Resort Park Amphitheatre, 542 Kenlake Road, Hardin, Kentucky.
“We are excited to be launching a new event on Kentucky Lake this year as our kick-off to the summer season,” says Executive Director Elena Blevins. “We have a great lineup of musicians, and this event is all about giving our visitors to the Kentucky Lake area as well as our local residents something fun to do over the holiday weekend. Music is big in Kentucky right now, and I believe we have one of the most beautiful venues in the Commonwealth when it comes to outdoor entertainment.”
Gates open at 4 p.m. May 26. Haleigh Martin will begin the show at 5 p.m., followed by Tim Lynch and then Jeremy Marshall and friends. Marshall County native Tony Logue will headline Friday’s show. Friday’s entertainment is sponsored by The Lakehouse Inn at Sledd Creek, a newly renovated boutique motel in Gilbertsville, Kentucky. Closing out the night will be a 20-minute fireworks display over the water, coordinated by Thunder in the Sky Pyrotechnics and sponsored by the Kentucky Lake CVB and Calloway County Tourist Commission.
The fun resumes Saturday at 2 p.m., with live music beginning at 3 p.m. Saturday’s lineup features Americana and country music acts from Kentucky and all over the nation. Featured are Corduroy Brown, Spooky Fox, Taylor Austin Dye, Rye Davis, Mike and the Moonpies, and Grammy-nominated country music artist Deana Carter, known for her hit songs “Strawberry Wine,” “We Danced Anyways,” and “Did I Shave My Legs For This.”
