Churchill Downs Entertainment Group announces Hullabalou Festival

Posted in Entertainment by sceneandheardblog on December 7, 2009

This festival will feature live performers including: Bon Jovi, Kenny Chesney and Dave Matthews Band. Headlining July 23-25, 2010, this event will showcase more than 65 bands. Churchill Downs Incorporated, (“CDI”), (NASDAQ: CHDN) and its new wholly owned subsidiary, Churchill Downs Entertainment Group, (“CDE”), today unveiled a significant three-day summer music festival that will showcase more than 65 bands, including the Grammy Award-winning Bon Jovi, country music phenomenon Kenny Chesney, and Grammy Award-winning Dave Matthews Band, at the world-famous home of the Kentucky Derby on July 23-25, 2010.

With the success of all the music festivals each summer, it’s nice to see Louisville get in on the act. It’s clear CDE has done their homework on many of the top festivals and has put together a great lineup. I attend and photograph many of the Nation’s top Festival every year. I am very pleased to know I can stay at home in July! I know many local people who are excited and are planning to attend this event. Most of these people have never considered Bonnaroo or any other festival.

With Forecastle only two weeks before Louisville becomes the music capital for the month of July! Louisville music lovers have complained for years about the lack of big music events in our area.  Now is our chance to support these great events.
