Toby Keith and Eli Young Band Among 2015 Lost Highway Festival Performers
Toby Keith will get to combine two of his favorite things -- motorcycles and music -- at the upcoming 2015 Lost Highway Festival.
Keith and the Eli Young Band are among the performers set for the inaugural event, which will be held May 29-30 at the San Manuel Amphitheater in San Bernadino, Calif. An eclectic list of artists, including Social Distortion, Lucero, Lindi Ortega and Rick Monroe, among others, round out the musical lineup, and the festival will also feature a motorcycle show, a contest for the best customized bike, stunt performances and an appearance by X-Games star Carey Hart.
“As a rider, Lost Highway is the realization of a longtime dream, to create a celebratory weekend for a community of riders and music fans,” says festival co-producer John Oakes of SGE Entertainment. “Our goal is to have Lost Highway become an experience everyone can look forward to all year.”
Two coordinated motorcycle rides will also occur during the event. The first will be led by United States servicemen and -women and is designed to raise awareness for the Infinite Hero mission, which combats both the difficult mental and physical issues that returning veterans face; the second will be led by Sturgis, S.D., Mayor Mark Cartsensen and Hart, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Sturgis charities. Both rides will run through the San Bernadino National Forest.
It's going to be a busy summer for Keith. To start, he's headlining both the 2015 Taste of Country Music Festival, to be held June 12-14 in Hunter Mountain, N.Y., and Country Jam 2015, which is set to take place June 18-21, in Grand Junction, Colo. EYB will also perform at both events.
Keith will also launch his 2015 Good Times and Pick Up Lines Tour on May 29 in Mountain View, Calif., one day before his performance at the Lost Highway Festival. A complete list of concert dates is available on his website.
Tickets for the Lost Highway Festival are on sale now. More information is available at LostHighwayFest.com.
