Cattle Country Music Fest gears up for unforgettable Gonzales weekend

Star-studded lineup, exclusive experiences and Texas hospitality await


The countdown to the ultimate country music extravaganza is officially on as Cattle Country Music Festival unveils its highly-anticipated daily schedule, an exciting festival map, their unique Come and Take it Lounge area, and a Texas camping oasis in historic Gonzales.

The stacked line-up includes headliners Eric Church, Whiskey Myers and Koe Wetzel with support from more than 30-plus artists, including Chase Rice, Randy Rogers Band, Tanya Tucker, Shane Smith & The Saints, The Red Clay Strays, The War And Treaty, Colbie Caillat, Tracy Lawrence, Tyler Braden, William Clark Green and more. The diverse lineup from up-and-coming artists to chart-topping headliners span across three stages over the three-day festival.

"The town of Gonzales has been so incredible to us in our first year and we’re excited to bring people from all over the world to not only enjoy the music and Texas southern hospitality, but to also see how

beautiful the backdrop of this festival truly is. It’s going to be one heck of a memorable weekend and we can’t wait for April 12,” said Marcus Federman, founder of Cattle Country Music Festival.

On Friday, April 12, for those staying overnight or for the weekend, the camping grounds open at noon and the festival gates open at 5 p.m. On Saturday and Sunday, you can check in the camping grounds at 8 a.m. with festival gates opening at 10 a.m.

In nearly two weeks, on April 12-14, the festival will take place in Gonzales on a sprawling 400-acre ranch dubbed “The Boot '' along the Guadalupe River, and it is set up for one epic weekend. On the festival map, you can find where to grab some mouth-watering Texas eats; upscale beverages, including crafted cocktails and wines; the Come and Take it Lounge area; and your favorite stage, including our main stage, The Austin Hope Wines Stage. The grounds will also include an on-site convenience store for all those last-minute needs.

You can see there is no need to leave the ranch when you can stay right where the action is. Whether you're a seasoned camper or prefer a touch of luxury, Cattle Country Music Fest has got you covered with a range of accommodation options. Pitch your tent under the stars in the GA or VIP camping areas, elevate to the luxurious Glamping Village with a private glamping lounge offering daily snacks and coffee, or stay the weekend in an RV and enjoy on-site amenities. And for all those who like the convenience of having their own lockable porta potty, you can even secure one of these. The festival will have 24-hour security on the grounds at all times. To secure your accommodations, visit

Elevate your experience at the exclusive Come and Take It Lounge. An ode to Gonzales’ famous “Come and Take It” cannon, a major part of Texas’ history as the object behind the first shot fired in the war for Texas Independence, this will be your ultimate festival oasis! Open to all ticket holders, the lounge offers a relaxing atmosphere complete with live music, delicious food, refreshing beverages, big screens for catching all the action, 50 plus unique vendors and so much more.
