“We’re going to get the Country Thunder Saskatchewan party started a little early in 2018!” says Country Thunder Music Festivals CEO, Troy Vollhoffer.

“After all the site renovations last year, it’s going to be amazing for our fans to be able to spend a little more time in the Craven Valley next summer – all at the same low price.”

Chris Young started his rise to fame in 2015 with his hit ‘I’m Comin Over’, which was followed by ‘Think Of You’ and ‘Sober Saturday Nights’ for three consecutive number one hits.
