Downtown Hoedown moves to Comerica Park for 30th anniversary

DETROIT (WXYZ) - The 99.5 WYCD Downtown Hoedown will be celebrating its 30th anniversary at a new location with a star studded lineup.

Organizers announced Monday that the event will be moved up Woodward, away from Hart Plaza, to the parking lots surrounding Comerica Park. It will be held from June 8 to June 10.

"The 30th anniversary of the WYCD Downtown Hoedown marks a tremendous milestone for this iconic Detroit event and offers an ideal opportunity to enrich the overall experience for attendees," said Debbie Kenyon, Senior Vice President and Market Manager of CBS Radio Detroit. "We had outgrown our previous riverfront location but remained 100 percent committed to keeping the WYCD Downtown Hoedown in the city of Detroit. We can provide the best of everything on the user-friendly grounds surrounding Comerica Park. People feel it's very safe and truly enjoy attending sporting events and concerts there. The layout also allows for much larger and more elaborate staging and better visibility for fans to enjoy the performers. Attendees will also have easier access to concessions; cleaner, more plentiful restroom facilities; and opportunities to take a break in the shade of the Comerica Park concourse."

Featured acts will include Josh Gracin, Dierks Bentley and Miranda Lambert, who will close out the show Sunday night.
