N.H. Supreme Court Sides With NHMS
The New Hampshire Supreme Court has cleared away the final hurdles to a proposed country music festival at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon. After a nearly two-year process, the state's highest court has ruled in the Speedway's favor, clearing the way for a three-day music festival with Live Nation.
The Supreme Court issued an order affirming the decision of the Superior Court.
"This is absolutely terrific news for music fans, local businesses and for tourism in the Capitol Region, and we are preparing to move full-steam ahead," said David McGrath, executive vice president and general manager of New Hampshire Motor Speedway. "Many thanks to both courts for a thorough review of the claims. We have our approvals from the Town of Loudon, and we are ecstatic to move forward. This has been a long time in the making, and we cannot wait to put on one heck of a show."
As for the specific dates for the event, McGrath tells music fans to "stay tuned." The country music festival will be held in the S6 Lot of NHMS property as originally proposed and approved. In partnership with Live Nation, this festival will include camping and three days of music from top country artists.
"Speedway Motorsports Incorporated is proud of its tradition of hosting high quality, family-oriented entertainment options at all of its facilities including NHMS," added McGrath. "We know this will be a great event for the entire region, and we are ready to move forward."
