By the time you read this, fans will have started descending upon the inaugural Mountain Home Country Music Festival. Between 15,000 and 17,000 people are expected to pack the ranch-property-turned-festival-grounds each day. Many will camp on-site. Others will journey in and out each day to see the massive lineup of acts. If you’re going, just remember to hydrate, cowboy. It’s supposed to be a warm one.
July 31-Aug. 2, 30 miles up Idaho 20 outside of Mountain Home. $175 general, $200 premium. (541) 345-9263, mountainhomefestival.com.
