KOKEFEST Unveils Killer 2022 Lineup

No, not all country radio stations suck. Some are downright badass. KOKE-FM out of Austin, TX is one of them, comprising one of the numerous Texas-based radio stations that regularly play artists in the Texas and Red Dirt world, along with more classic artists and some of the mainstream stuff that’s decent. They’ve also put on a kickass festival now for five years where devotees to the KOKE world congregate.

Maybe it’s just a symptom of how everything is better with the Turnpike Troubadours, but the 2022 lineup for KOKEFEST really is killer. It has it all. Along with the boys from Oklahoma, you have a true country music legend in Clint Black, some of the best current artists coming up in traditional country in Randall King and Triston Marez, the soulful Larry Fleet, the Southern rock of The Steel Woods, rodeo country mainstay Aaron Watson, the always-energetic American Aquarium, Texas songbird Jamie Lin Wilson, and one of the most buzzed about up-and-coming songwriters, Tanner Usrey.

There is also a “legendary special guest” and another artist for the lineup still to be announced.

It’s all going down at Hutton Park at Brushy Creek just north of Austin, and having attended this festival before, it’s a really well-curated event on cool grounds. Save for the August heat in Texas, it’s just about perfect. But that’s what beer and water are for.

“We are so pumped about KOKEFEST this year. This is our 5th year and the fans and musicians have made this into an event we are all proud of,” says KOKE-FM Operations Director Eric Raines. “Once again, our lineup has something for every fan. Our vision has always been to up the entertainment and experience both on and off the stage and this KOKEFEST won’t disappoint—it will be the summer’s biggest party!”

The Lineup Is:

Friday, August 5: Clint Black, Aaron Watson, Randall King, Larry Fleet, and Triston Marez

Saturday, August 6: Turnpike Troubadours, Special Guest, American Aquarium, TBA, The Steel Woods, Jamie Lin Wilson, Tanner Usrey

Tickets go on-sale Friday, April 8, at 10:00 A.M. CST at kokefest.com.
