Red Rhythm & Boom


Mason City Council hopes you enjoy this FREE regional event intended to showcase the quality of life that Mason has to offer. Phillip Phillips and Ben Rector are the featured artists for this year’s event you won’t want to miss!


The City of Mason is excited to announce that Red Rhythm and Boom will feature multi-platinum artist, Phillip Phillips! This acclaimed artist began his career by winning Season 11 of American Idol in 2011. Since releasing his five-times platinum debut single “Home” in spring 2012, Phillip Phillips has put out two chart-topping albums and taken his earthy but expansive brand of guitar-fueled rock to stages across the globe. With songs from his platinum album, The World from the Side of the Moon and sophomore album, Behind the Light, Phillips is sure to get the crowd rocking with his rich, soulful vocals and bold twist on anthemic folk-rock. The City of Mason is also excited to host chart-topping musical artist Ben Rector as the opening act.


The fun will begin at 4 p.m. with access to carnival and kid zone activities such as a zipline, extreme air trampolines, interactive inflatables, a climbing wall, bounce houses, strolling entertainment and more! Guests can also enjoy a wide variety of food options as well as an adult beverage garden available throughout the evening. Stage entertainment will kick off at 6 p.m. with a skydiving exhibit presented by Start Skydiving and continue throughout the night until a fireworks display presented by Rozzi’s Famous Fireworks at 10 p.m. We hope you can join us!


The event is FREE (no admission ticket is required). All lawn seating is first come, first serve beginning at 3 p.m. on Monday, July 3. Backstage passes are not available.
