NH Speedway Clears Hurdle To Host Live Nation Country Festival

New Hampshire Motor Speedway has announced a ruling in its favor giving the green light on a proposed three-day Live Nation country music festival to take place on its grounds.
“This is absolutely terrific news for music fans, local businesses and for tourism in the Capitol Region, and we are preparing to move full-steam ahead,” stated David McGrath, executive vice president and general manager of New Hampshire Motor Speedway. “Many thanks to both courts for a thorough review of the claims. We have our approvals from the Town of Loudon, and we are ecstatic to move forward. This has been a long time in the making, and we cannot wait to put on one heck of a show.”
A group of nearby residents had sued the facility over plans to stage the festival, saying a 1989 settlement between the speedway and Loudon, N.H., prohibits concerts not related to racing events. 
Live Nation is expected to announce details soon, but three days of camping and top talent is promised.
The racetrack, about 80 miles northwest of Boston, has hosted annual NASCAR and motorcycle events since its opening in the ’90s and has seated capacity of 88,000 for those events.
