Clovis Music Festival Making Quite a Buzz This Year!

clovisnm.org It’s time for the 26th Annual Clovis Music Festival!

The chairman of the festival, Randy Petty, is hearing plenty of good things about this year’s change in lineup.

He says, “we’re doing something a little different…to move forward and try to get something…further ahead than the 50s and 60s.”

This change includes hiring bands like Night Ranger and Jack Russell’s Great White, which is attracting a younger, widespread crowd.

Matthew Germain, 23-year-old Clovis resident, first saw Night Ranger on tour with Journey and Foreigner in 2011, and he can’t wait to see them again.

Pre-sale tickets are also selling as far away as Midland, Odessa, and Lubbock, even into Texas. These pre-sales have been “upwards of 10 times better” than we’ve seen before.
