Platinum-selling recording artists Sister Hazel will headline a pregame concert before Florida and Miami take the field for the 2019 Camping World Kickoff on Saturday, Aug. 24.
The concert will take place as part of the game’s official FanFest, located on Tinker Field, just west of Camping World Stadium. FanFest gates open at 2 p.m., and a game ticket is required for entry. Singer-songwriter Kyle Daniel will take the Wendy’s Stage approximately 4:30 p.m., with Sister Hazel to follow.
“Few bands are as synonymous with the Sunshine State as Sister Hazel, and we’re so excited to have them headline our pregame festivities,” Florida Citrus Sports CEO Steve Hogan said. “If you’re a fan of fun, food, football and music, Camping World Stadium will be the place to be before the Gators and Hurricanes kick off the 2019 season.”
Originating from Gainesville, Fla., Sister Hazel rose to fame in 1997 with the smash hit “All For You,” and has recently landed on Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart with Volumes I, II, and III of a collectible compilation series titled “Elements.” The fourth and final volume in the series, “Earth,” is set to be released on Sept. 6.
Tickets to the Camping World Kickoff are still available through Florida Citrus Sports membership. To learn more, visit FloridaCitrusSports.com

About Sister Hazel
Originating from Gainesville, FL, Sister Hazel is comprised of five gifted, seasoned musicians whose well-spring of natural talent has been called “one of the Top 100 Most Influential Independent Performers of the last 15 years” by Performing Songwriter Magazine. Song “All for You,” topped the adult alternative charts during the summer of 1997 and the success propelled their album to platinum status. Since then, the band has become firmly established not only in rock and alternative music, but now in country with four back-to-back Billboard Top Country Album Chart entries. Living up to their fan-centered reputation, the band was a pioneer in the themed cruise industry by co-founding “The Rock Boat” and annually hosts events like the “Hazelnut Hang,” and “Camp Hazelnut” that focuses on creating unique experiences and interacting with the fans. Sister Hazel has been equally attentive to connecting with their audience through social media having amassed over a million social followers. In addition to the events and touring, the band also gives back with “Lyrics For Life.” Founded by singer Ken Block, the charity unites musicians and celebrities for concerts and auctions to benefit cancer research and patient-care charities.
