Court Sides with Speedway on Music Festival

The NH 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 determined that it did not need to issue a formal order and affirmed the decision from 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,” says David McGrath, executive VP and general manager of NH 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 says 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, the statement reads.

“Speedway Motorsports Incorporated is proud of its tradition of hosting high quality, family-oriented entertainment options at all of its facilities including NHMS,” says McGrath. “We know this will be a great event for the entire region, and we are ready to move forward.”
