The event, located in open fields north of Port Orford and right outside of Cape Blanco State Park, is expected to draw more than 20,000 music fans.

The festival will feature 13 performances from both major country music stars and up-and-coming artists from 3 p.m. Friday through Sunday afternoon.

Performances will start in the afternoon each day, with performances every two hours leading up to the headliners. The spotlight will belong to Blake Shelton Friday night, with country duo Florida-Georgia Line headlining Saturday and sibling act The Band Perry closing things down on Sunday evening.


City will borrow cash to fix street

The Brookings City Council Monday evening voted to borrow $650,000 from the state and dip into its Urban Renewal funds and System Development and System Replacement funds to pay its share of the reconstruction of Railroad Street

The $3.1 million project, expected to begin in 2018, is already in the design stages, said City Manager Gary Milliman. It will feature a driving lane in each direction, left turn and bike lanes and sidewalks from Oak to Center streets.

The federal grant that is funding 60 percent of the cost requires the city to match the remaining $1 million; the city can obtain the $650,000 loan at a 2.05 percent rate. Annual payments from 2018 to 2020 will be $30,000. In 2021 they will increase to $92,721. The loan will be paid off in 2028.
