Jimmie Allen has revealed the lineup for the upcoming 2nd annual Bettie James Festival, scheduled to take place on August 13 at Hudson Fields in his hometown of Milton, Delaware.
The lineup includes We The Kings, Lainey Wilson, Neon Union, Chayce Beckham, JJ Rupp and Kounty.
Allen will be holding a social media contest for local artists to select two additional opening acts for the festival.
Allen, who established the festival in 2021 in honor of his late grandmother Bettie Snead and late father James Allen, will once again headline the event.
“Bettie James Fest part two! Bettie James Fest is a music festival that I put on in my hometown of Milton, DE, in honor of my grandma Bettie and father James. It’s a multi-genre day of music, celebrating life and different types of music,” Allen explains. “It’s super fun, and it’s a way for me to come back and dive back into my hometown and bring music here. It’s the one show that I look forward to most every year.”
“To be able to come back to the place that raised me, after having a little bit of success, just means so much ’cause these are the people that made me who I am. This is the town that made me who I am. And it’s great because we also get to have Delaware artists come down and be part of the festival as well,” he continues.
“Bettie James Fest… Part 2… Going down August 13, 2022 – Hudson Fields in Milton, De… I’ll see y’all there!”
