Thank You!

On behalf of the entire Flat Rock Summer Blast Festival Committee would like to sincerely thank our sponsors, vendors, entertainers, volunteers and the Flat Rock community for supporting the festival. Putting together a successful annual event is a year-round effort, and without the fantastic sponsorships and donations from local businesses, and especially the support from the Flat Rock community and beyond, events like this could never come to fruition. We hope you had a wonderful time making memories with your family and friends this past weekend. We look forward to you joining us again in September for the 2019 Flat Rock Riverfest (Sept. 13-15th) at Huroc Park. Stay tuned to our Facebook page and this website for updates on the fun activities taking place at Riverfest this year. Exciting details are coming soon!

2018 Summer Blast Headliner… LINDSAY ELL!

We are thrilled to announce Nashville country music sensation LINDSAY ELL will be performing at the 2018 Ford Flat Rock Summer Blast on Saturday, June 9th!

Named one of The Huffington Post’s “Top Country Artists to Watch,” Lindsay Ell is a triple threat: accomplished musician, unique vocalist and songwriter. The Calgary native learned to play guitar while traveling with her father to country-bluegrass camps as a young girl. Ell honed her craft as a musical stylist and songwriter after being discovered by BTO and The Guess Who’s Randy Bachman (“American Woman” / “Taking Care of Business”) who discovered her at the age of 13. The multi-instrumentalist was soon touring alongside the likes of Luke Bryan, Buddy Guy, The Band Perry and Keith Urban, as well as wowing audiences as Carrie Underwood’s guitar player live on the “50th Annual CMA Awards” and holding her own alongside icon Melissa Etheridge on Skyville Live.

A 2016 CMT Music Award and multiple Canadian Country Music Award nominee, Ell exhilarated audiences from coast-to-coast as part of the 2016 CMT Next Women of Country Tour, Brad Paisley’s 2017 and 2018 WEEKEND WARRIOR WORLD TOUR, and will soon join SUGARLAND’S STILL THE SAME TOUR. Ell’s first full-length album The Project debuted at No. 1 on the Country Album Sales Chart in August 2017 and was recently lauded as Billboard’s ‘BEST COUNTRY ALBUM OF 2017.’ Ell’s current single “Criminal” was the Most Added song at Country radio on its impact date and is currently Top 20 and fast-rising. “Criminal” also reached #1 in Canada, which hadn’t been done from a solo female in over 10 years.
