The 2013 Taste of Country Music Festival … By the Numbers!

ToC Fest Numbers
Paul Brasil for Taste of Country

The 2013 Taste of Country Music Festival began at 6:30PM on June 13 and wrapped at 11:15PM on June 15. In that time, thousands of fans camped out to wait for their favorite singers, duos and trios, or drove hundreds of miles to stay for just one day. No matter how you add it up, the first-ever festival was a success.

Here’s a look at the hard numbers from the inaugural three-day festival. A headliner for the 2014 festival has already been announced, but we’re gonna give our calculator a break before estimating how much fun will be had next Father’s Day weekend.
