Star Spangled Entertainment for your 4th of July Event
Marking America’s independence from the British Empire in 1776, the 4th of July has since been celebrated annually with millions of Americans coming together to celebrate the anniversary of the birth of their nation.
What’s The History Of The 4th Of July?
After fighting for control over their colonial affairs, George Washington successfully? led the revolutionary war that freed the 13 North American colonies, creating united, independent states. On the 4th July 1776, the final version of the Declaration was approved by Congress, announcing that the 13 colonies were no longer under British rule.
In a simple yet powerful mark of respect to each of the colonies, 13 gunshots were fired as part of the first celebration of independence on the 4th of July 1777, a year after the Declaration of Independence was approved.
Today, the Fourth of July is recognised as a state celebration and paid holiday which sees millions of Americans take part in parades, barbecues, firework displays and patriotic activities - usually outside - with as much red, white and blue as possible!
With the Fourth of July just around the corner, we take a look at some of our favourite US-based artists perfect for Americana style entertainment and celebrating Independence Day!
