KANSAS CITY, March 5, 2024 – Kustom Entertainment, Inc., a premier live event marketing and concert production company and current subsidiary of Digital Ally, Inc., is thrilled to announce the recent acquisition of the renowned Country Stampede Music Festival. This strategic move marks a significant milestone for Kustom Entertainment, solidifying its presence and influence in the entertainment industry.

Bud Ross, the father of Kustom Entertainment's CEO Stan Ross, has a rich history in the industry, having founded companies dedicated to music and amplifier production. This acquisition aligns seamlessly with the Ross family's commitment to shaping the landscape of entertainment.


Bud Ross started Kustom Amplifiers in 1964 after making his first amplifiers for his own band years prior out of his garage. Many artists have expressed their affection for Kustom Amps including John Fogerty, Sheryl Crow, Lenny Kravitz, Johnny Cash, and many more, spanning genres from Rock, Pop, R&B, Country, and Jazz. After selling Kustom Amps, Bud Ross formed another company and began making guitar-effects pedals, including the famous Ross Compressor pedal. Ross was inducted into the Kansas Music Hall of Fame in 2006.


Expressing his excitement about the acquisition, Stan Ross, CEO of Kustom Entertainment, stated, "We are honored to carry on the tradition of Country Stampede Music Festival. This acquisition is more than a business venture; it is a celebration of the rich history and culture of country music. We are committed to preserving the festival's legacy while introducing new elements that will captivate music fans for years to come."


The Country Stampede Music Festival has become synonymous with top-tier entertainment, camping, and a vibrant community of music enthusiasts. Kustom Entertainment plans to build upon this foundation, bringing fresh ideas and experiences to enhance the overall festival atmosphere and broaden the presence of Country Stampede in further states in the years to come.


Kustom Entertainment promises a seamless transition for both fans and partners, and an unforgettable experience for all attendees. The festival features a 2024 lineup that includes Chris Janson, Riley Green, Jon Pardi, among other artists, and runs this summer from June 27th to 29th at Azura Amphitheatre in Bonner Springs, Kansas.
