NASCAR race fans and music festival fans both will have reasons to celebrate this summer at Michigan International Speedway. Keloorah, a music festival experience, will take place on Friday andSaturday of each NASCAR weekend at MIS this summer.
Keloorah kicks off in June when GROUPLOVE, Third Eye Blind, Fitz and the Tantrums, Andy Grammer, The Neighbourhood, Elle King, as well as Joe Hertler and the Rainbow Seekers take the stage.
The action does not stop in August as country music is featured over two nights of fun at Keloorah. Fans can sing along with Chase Rice, Chase Bryant, Kip Moore, Drake White and The Big Fire and Tim Dugger.
The track is offering a special presale for fans to get in on all of the celebration at Keloorah. Fans that have already purchased NASCAR Sprint Cup Series admissions can call 800.354.1010 beginning March 23 to get your two-day admission to Keloorah for just $20. All you need to do is ask for the Keloorah add-on admission. If you haven’t purchased NASCAR admissions yet, no problem. Ask the agent about the Keloorah packages. The presale is ONLY available on the phone. The call center is open 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday–Friday and 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday–Sunday.
Special packages and VIP experiences are also available for fans looking to make it a weekend of partying.
But act quickly because Keloorah prices go up to $30 on March 30.
“We are excited about Keloorah and the great performers we are bringing to MIS for the fans to enjoy on the NASCAR weekends,” MIS President Roger Curtis said. “Keloorah is a completely unique concept – a true music festival taking place at the same time as a NASCAR race weekend to attract new fans to MIS who may not otherwise be aware of, or come to see, NASCAR, as well as provide a great new experience for our NASCAR fans. Keloorah will be an entertainment experience unparalleled at any other NASCAR event.”
Thirteen acts, spanning country and alternative rock, along with several DJs will perform at Keloorah.
But that’s not all.
Besides the live shows, there will be deejays, a go-kart experience, a video game arcade, an outdoor sports bar, tailgate games, foam parties and paint parties – all within the NASCAR event weekends and on MIS property.
Keloorah is behind Turn 3, central to many of MIS’ campgrounds.
Keloorah is open with activities from 5-11 p.m. on Fridays and 4-11 p.m. on Saturdays, June 10-11; and August 26-27.
