"Going into Faster Horses this weekend knowing we had a sold-out crowd ahead of us, I had certain expectations," said Brian O' Connell, President of Country Touring at Live Nation. "But the way the fans came together in our third year to really make this weekend something special surpassed my expectations. The weather couldn't even bring this crowd down who returned for the late night party of the weekend on Saturday following a delay.  I'm so thankful for the fans who have helped build this festival since we started a few short years ago, as well as my team and the amazing artists who keep coming back for more. See y'all next year!", twitter @faster_horses, and join the conversation on Twitter, #FasterHorses.
