Country Thunder Music Festival Bristol (October 6-7) – Bristol, TN
This epic festival tours all over the U.S. and Canada and has been a regular on this monthly list of RV-friendly music festivals for good reason. It features some of the biggest headliners (e.g. Eric Church, Brooks & Dunn, Jelly Roll) in country music across several stages.
And Country Thunder’s RV camping options are probably second to none when it comes to music festival RVing. You can join a sea of other campers (often with water and electric hookups) right on the festival grounds to keep the party going long after the final notes have strummed.

And — as the name implies — this festival sits at the epicenter of the Great Texas Twoclipse where the paths of totality for the Annual Eclipse of October ’23 and Total Eclipse of April ’24 will form an X.
You’ll enjoy an epic viewing spot for the eclipse while simultaneously enjoying some of the best music our planet has to offer. RV camping is available right at the ranch so you can see it all with a home on wheels by your side.
