Before the musical acts announcement, there are a few changes to Old Settlers Day to be aware.

  1. Close to the stage s a Preferred standing section. With a limited number of tickets available. General Admission will be available for sitting in chairs a bit further back from the stage.
  2. Concert ticket gets you into the festival, no 4-Day General Admission pass if you have a concert ticket.
  3. 4-Day General Admission passes are 10 for the weekend through June 13th, and $15 beginning June 15. (If you just want to see the festival stage acts and enjoy the food court, carnival and kids activities, and vendors, this is for you.)

Now, on with the music!

Mark it on your calendar because you're going to want to buy a boat, fix a drink, and act like a drunk girl all in one weekend - but be careful because someone might single you up (Not necessarily in that order and drink responsibly.)  All jokes aside, Old Settlers Days has finally announced their 2018 lineup and saving the best for last.

CHRIS JANSON+JORDAN DAVIS with Q98.5

On Sunday, June 17 [Q98.5 Day] Jordan Davis (and his glorious beard) is bringing a little soul, cool melodies, and his own flavor to Old Settlers Days to get your blood pumping with a bunch of songs - including "Singles You Up."

Once your adrenaline is at level 9 Chris Janson will take over and bring it to about a level 35 with songs like "Buy Me A Boat", "Fix a Drink", "Drunk Girl", and more. Chris isn't afraid to throw some classic rock into his sets either and let's not forget his harmonica skills. Chris Janson doesn't just play the harmonica - he lives through it. If you're only able to get to one summer concert in 2018 this is the one.

The full list of headliners at Old Settlers Days 2018 is like the perfect party playlist. A little bit old school, a little hip-hop, and the perfect amount of country.
