It has been reported that Kentucky's Churchill Downs will be playing host to a three-day concert in July, 2010 with some very big names expected to perform


The event has been dubbed the HullabaLOU music festival according to an article on, and will run from July 23 through 25. Organizers are hoping on attracting crowds of 30,000 per day and an economic impact of $38 million.

The report indicates that Bon Jovi, Kenny Chesney and the Dave Matthews Band are expected to be performing.

A total of five stages will be erected in the infield and paddock. The report also states that morning training hours for horse will be suspended for several days.
