For five years Buckin’ Wild Music Fest has sought to bring the best in local talent from the Texas panhandle and western Oklahoma together for a weekend of non-stop entertainment. On its fifth year, Buckin’ Wild Music Fest looks to be bigger than ever.

According to BWFMF organizer, Donny Liles, there is more excitement circulating around this year’s festival than ever before. With over 14 artists and events spread over three days including the first ever Buckin’ Wild Barrel Racing event, it’s easy to see why.

The festival will be hosted at the Flying W Guest Ranch, with camping available (and yes, there are showers and restroom facilities available). If you aren’t feeling up to camping, the ranch is situated close enough to Elk City that a hotel stay puts you just minutes away from all of the action.

Thursday night is the acoustic songwriter’s showcase featuring several artists from Texas, Oklahoma, and even Nashville. It will be a more relaxed start to the festival as attendees will get to hear the stories behind the songs in an intimate setting.

Friday starts the barrel racing events. When the music gets started Ragtown Chiefs, from Amarillo/Canyon, will be taking to the stage to bring a bit of the high plains to BWMF. Friday’s headliner is no stranger to stages across Amarillo. JW Lane and County Road X from the Shamrock and Amarillo areas will be capping off night two.

Saturday is day two of barrel racing, along with a full day of live music capped off by headliners Love & Theft, who has played the festival every single year.

There will be an after party as well, featuring a full breakfast bar once the dust has settled.

Food and beverage vendors will be on hand, and the event is rain or shine. In the event of inclement weather, the festival will be moved to an indoor stage with plenty of room for festival goers.
