It’s finally here and Thomas Rhett’s amazing 19-song setlist for TidalWave Music Festival is revealed. TidalWave is heading to Atlantic City, New Jersey this weekend with headliners Thomas Rhett, Jason Aldean, and Brooks & Dunn. The oceanfront festival’s main stage will host performances by Cooper Alan, Priscilla Block, Lindsay Ell, Randy Houser, Corey Kent, Dustin Lynch, Jo Dee Messina, Jelly Roll, Tenille Arts, Dylan Scott, Nate Smith, Cole Swindell, Mitchell Tenpenny, Hailey Whitters and DeeJay Silver.

TidalWave will also continue to introduce fans to country music’s most exciting acts, bringing a stacked second-stage lineup, dubbed “Next from Nashville.” Red-hot newcomers set to play the stage in 2023 include George Birge, Ben Burgess, Aidan Canfield, Madeline Edwards, Dylan Marlowe, Chase McDaniel, John Morgan, Megan Moroney, Pillbox Patti, Peytan Porter, Aaron Raitiere, Lauren Watkins, Jake Worthington, plus a special performance by Ray Wylie Hubbard. Such a fun way to check out new acts and see who’s going to be country music’s next big thing.

The last time Thomas Rhett was in the Philadelphia area 2021. He’s one of my absolute favorites and ironically the last time he was here was at Freedom Mortgage Pavillon, which was BB&T Pavillon at the time, and Cole Swindell also opened for him. Gabby Barrett was on that tour as well.

Last year was the first year for Tidalwave Music Festival, and its headliners were Luke Bryan, Morgan Wallen, and Dierks Bentley. I love Dierks so much and I’m bummed he didn’t make a tour stop in the Philadelphia area this summer. We were also supposedly to have Morgan Wallen this June 18 at Citizens Bank Park, but he cancelled because of his vocal issues and we are still waiting for Morgan’s rescheduled date for Philadelphia.

This is what we think his set list will be based on his July 21st tour stop. Also, three-day passes and single-day passes for this one-of-a-kind experience are on sale now at

Enjoy Thomas Rhett’s setlist for TidalWave and save it for this weekend.

    Ain’t it funny how life changes. You wake up, ain’t nothing the same and life changes. You can’t stop it, just hop on the train and You never know what’s gonna happen. You make your plans and you hear god laughing. Life changes, and I wouldn’t change it for the world, the world, oh no.
