MANHATTAN, Kansas (AP) — The Country Stampede annual music and camping festival will remain at a northeast Kansas state park through 2017.
Officials of the festival announced Monday an extension of their lease with the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism.
Country Stampede takes place the last full weekend in June at Tuttle Creek State Park, about four miles north of Manhattan. Some of country music's biggest stars have performed since the first festival was held in 1996.
This year's Country Stampede takes place June 27-30. Headliners will include Trace Adkins, Little Big Town, Jason Aldean and the Pistol Annies, featuring Miranda Lambert, Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley.
