This 4-day festival is a crowd favorite. The festival is in the prime middle of the summer so the perfect way to enjoy the warm weather is with Zach Bryan, Darius Rucker, Luke Bryan, and Zac Brown Band. Tickets are selling fast, so if you want to enjoy the Smokeout, I recommend buying your tickets early.
