Megastar’s Blake Shelton & Pitbull to Play Sold-Out Pendleton® Whisky Music Fest This Summer


Pendleton, Ore. (April 9, 2018) – Representatives from Pendleton® Whisky Music Fest confirmed today that the 3rd Annual Music Fest will be a sold-out show, featuring five-time CMA male vocalist of the year, Blake Shelton and Grammy award-winning, global superstar Pitbull. Tickets went on sale Friday, March 23rd, and proved to be of high-demand with 98 percent being sold through pre-sale and the first day of on-sale.

The two performers will hit the stage on Saturday, July 14th bringing a unique and exciting show to the Pendleton Round-Up Grounds. Blake Shelton, with twenty-five #1 hit singles, will reintroduce the Music Fest to its country roots, brought to life by the inaugural performance of Zac Brown Band, and Pitbull, known worldwide, will bring to the crowd the upbeat, pop-tempo established by Maroon 5 who played to a sold-out arena in 2017.

Over its two-year span, the Pendleton Whisky Music Fest has continued to see growth, with larger audiences and more opportunities to engage the local Pendleton community around the festivities. In 2017, the event expanded to include a free kick-off party on Pendleton’s Main Street the Friday night before the show. Having been a success, the show organizers plan to expand the Friday night festivities this year.

“This is the third year we’re bringing to life the ‘Party in Pendleton’ and we couldn’t be more excited,” said Andy McAnally, Pendleton Whisky Music Fest co-organizer. “We are honored to welcome Blake Shelton and Pitbull to our Pendleton community and look forward to hosting music fans from the entire Pacific Northwest and beyond.”
