OKLAHOMA CITY – June 1, 2022 – Music is as much a part of the Great American Road Trip as classic cars and roadside diners, so it only makes sense that there will be a packed schedule of live music playing from morning to night during the AAA Route 66 Road Fest.

A total of 10 bands will be playing in Oklahoma City on June 18 and 19 at the Bennet Event Center at OKC Fairgrounds. On June 25 and 26, 12 acts will be performing at Tulsa’s SageNet Center at Expo Square. Music is a major part of a sweeping celebration of history and nostalgia as the AAA Route 66 Road Fest kicks off a national countdown to 2026, when Route 66 turns 100 years old.

“We couldn’t be more excited about the amazing line-up of performers taking the stage during our inaugural event,” said Jared Peterson, AAA Oklahoma executive. “Route 66 is about freedom, mobility and the celebration of life, and these bands will be a big part of the spirit that makes the AAA Route 66 Road Fest so special.”
