To get ready for this year's Country Thunder, here are the eight things you need to know:

When is Country Thunder? Country Thunder runs from July 19 - July 22. 

Where is Country Thunder? Twin Lakes, Wis. will be the site for Country Thunder. If you are driving, you are advised to put 2305 Lance Drive, Twin Lakes, WI 53181 into your GPS and look for specific signs leading you to the grounds. 

What artists will be at Country Thunder? This year's lineup includes Luke Bryan, Sam Hunt, Toby Keith, Dierks Bentley, Brett Young, Brothers Osborne, Midland, Tyler Farr, Lucy Voll, Runaway June and many more.

What items are NOT allowed in the festival bowl? Glass containers, umbrellas, chairs with canopies, outside food and beverage, drones, alcohol and illegal substances, animals, bags, bottles, cans and other beverage containers, cameras with lenses longer than six inches, fireworks, laptops, radios, laser pointer, noisemakers, advertising not approved by Country Thunder, seat cushions, selfie sticks, video cameras, tripods and weapons are all not allowed in the festival bowl area. 

How can I camp at the grounds for the weekend? You will first need to purchase a 4-day general admission wristband to gain access to the campgrounds. Each campsite measures 19' x 39', excluding campsites in Premier which measure 25' x 45'. If your RV exceeds these measurements, you will have to purchase two campsites. Also note that unless you are camping in the Big Rig sites, you will not have hookups to water or electricity.

Are pets and kids allowed at Country Thunder? Kids are welcomed to the grounds and kids 12 and under are admitted for free. While pets are allowed, Country Thunder does advise you to leave them at home as the crowds and noise have been known to scare the animals.

What services does Country Thunder offer? ATM machines, food and drink vendors, medical and police services, bathroom and shower facilities, towing and RV servicing are all available at Country Thunder. 

So how can I get tickets to Country Thunder? You can buy tickets for the music festival by going online at Country Thunder's website. You can also get your tickets at any participating Walgreens or Menards.
