A country music festival will be coming to Fontana in the summer of 2020, organizers said.
The Tailgate Fest will be held at Auto Club Speedway during the weekend of Aug. 15-16, promising to bring some popular musicians, although the lineup has not yet been officially announced.
The third annual event, which was held in Eastvale earlier this year, is described as the first country music festival that caters to fans who want to tailgate while listening to the concert.
"Tailgating can continue throughout the whole festival as fans can watch their favorite performers from their personal party setups at their vehicles," according to the Tailgate Fest website.
In addition, for fans who don't want to tailgate, the event offers general admission and pit passes and even a limited opportunity to watch the show while relaxing in a nearby pool.
Auto Club Speedway, which is known primarily for its automobile races, has hosted several musical events over the years. In fact, this year's HARD Summer Music Festival (featuring electronic dance music and hip hop artists) attracted 170,000 fans to the speedway over a two-day period in August.
