Tara Miller, Runaway Country Production Assistant explained, “A newly configured concert bowl, Lakeside Lounges, a craft beer area, shaded food court and some other additions will greet festival goers. We are excited for March to get here.”

McCann concluded, “As big as the line-up is with today’s announcements, there’s still more to come in the next few weeks. We are just waiting for some paperwork to arrive. It’s going to be a fun weekend.”

The Space Coast offers 72 miles of oceanfront beaches including Melbourne, Cocoa Beach, Palm Bay and Titusville. Music fans can choose from approximately 12,000 hotel rooms for every budget and taste within 10-20 minutes of the festival site.

Single day and weekend ticket packages are on sale now.

Boys ‘Round Here
God Gave Me You

These are just a few of the songs we can’t wait to hear coming from the Runaway Country stage! We are thrilled to announce that Blake Shelton will be one of the headliners for next year’s Runaway Country. We’ve been after Blake for a long time and everything just fell into place this year. We feel extremely lucky to have him since they tell us that Runaway Country is his ONLY Florida date in 2015.

With a career spanning more than a decade, Blake has earned numerous #1 hits and has a long list of awards to his name including Song of the Year, Video of the Year & Entertainer of the Year. He is also the reigning CMA Male Vocalist of the Year.


Time to Celebrate 5 Years

These two know how to throw a party C.O.U.N.T.R.Y style!

What better way to celebrate our 5th anniversary than with a group that has been with us EVERY year.lo cash

This year not only will LoCash Cowboys get you dancing to foot tappers like “Here Comes Summer” and “Little Miss Crazy Hot” blasting from the main stage, but they are going to keep the party going till the wee hours in My Apartment.

Then to top it all off, they are going to be your main stage emcees for part of the weekend. So get yourselves out of the campgrounds and see what these two have in store for all of you.

This year we are happy to introduce to you, a young Floridian who has opened recently for Alan Jackson, Blake Shelton and the Charlie Daniels Band.

Runaway Country Leases 17,000 sq.ft. Production Studio at the Port

Runaway Country Music Fest confirmed they have leased a 17,000 sq. ft., air-conditioned warehouse with offices and production studios at The Port.

Executive Producer, Gary McCann said, “We are thrilled to combine our production offices and warehouse at one location and to be a part of the exciting action around the Port. With Runaway Country preparing to stage the 5th annual music festival in Wickham Park this coming March, we have been busy with requests to produce additional events including more music festivals, celebrations of beer, wine and food, restaurant promotions, corporate events, marketing strategies and national promotion tours for key clients. The new location has received inquiries from out of town visitors, which hopefully will translate into more business for Space Coast hotels, restaurants and other tourism related companies.

Located directly across the street from the Florida Beer Company, who recently staged their grand opening, McCann was asked if that could be a location too close for comfort.

“Yes it’s probably too close,” McCann laughed. “Considering discipline has never been our strongest asset, our new address next to a brewery should be quite the place to celebrate…anything and everything.”

Runaway Country is making their offices and warehouse available on a few select dates to companies and individuals looking for a unique venue to hold an event.

According to McCann, “The demand for unique and eclectic is on the rise. We are booking a few drive-thru weddings and a couple of Christmas parties.”

Runaway Production assistant Tara Miller explained, “Now you and your spouse can ride directly into your wedding reception sitting on the back of a convertible, park it right next to the dance floor, then ride straight out the other door, directly to your cruise ship at The Port. How cool is that?”

Doug Baker, VP of Marketing and Sponsorship for Runaway Country added, “Several companies are looking to reward their employees in an exciting atmosphere. Christmas party inquiries are at the top of the list while another is looking at a themed dinner for charity. It’s an exciting time around here.”

McCann concluded, “We are thrilled to be working with designers Angela Braid and Brandy Beckstein. We have given them a blank canvas to do awesome work for those hosting a warehouse event.”

In the meantime, McCann and crew are busy preparing to announce the line-up for the 2015 Runaway Country Music Fest. The first announcements will be made at a pre-party on the Crowne Plaza Ocean Deck Sept. 4th, 6PM – 9PM. The party is open to the public and admission is free.

For festival ticket information go to www.RunawayCountry.com or phone 321-549-4204.
