Toby Keith will headline Los Angeles’ inaugural Tailgate Fest on the Forum’s grounds over Labor Day Weekend. According to a press release, the festival is intended to fill a hole in the $60 billion growing tailgating culture.
The event will include activities such as the Tailgate Cornhole World Championships, the Jacked Up Truck Competition, the Two Step Honky Tonk and a Dunk Tank.
“I’m such a tailgate fanatic and the more embedded I got in the culture, I realized there was a pretty unanimous sentiment among us tailgaters. The tailgate shouldn’t stop when the show starts. Bring the stage truck-side sort of speak,” said Melissa Carbone, founder and CEO of Ten Thirty One Productions (TTO) in a statement. “People can still watch the show the traditional way, stageside, but now also have the choice of truck-side, car-side, even poolside. Yeah, I said pool… we’re pulling it all out.”
The first ever Tailgate Fest will take place September 1 outside the Forum in Inglewood, California.
