Cinco de Mayo is about to get a little bit country when the 2018 iHeartCountry Festival rolls into Austin, Texas for a massive fiesta.
Bringing the best of the best from the genre to the city that likes to keep things ‘weird’ as their slogan suggests, iHeartCountry will showcase radio’s biggest songs for one of the first country festivals of the season. Luke Bryan, Sugarland, Maren Morris and Keith Urban will all perform at the big event.
Other artists included on the announced lineup at this time are Dustin Lynch, Cole Swindell, Luke Combs, Billy Currington, Dan + Shay, Jon Pardi and Brett Young. More acts will be selected in the weeks leading up to the festival. On-air radio personality Bobby Bones will emcee the show, which iHeartRadio expects to unite fans and artists of country music together in one awesome set of performances.
“What makes this Festival special is that it is the one night the A-list of Country Music comes together to perform live, collaborate with friends and spend time together as a family,” said John Sykes, President of Entertainment Enterprises for iHeartMedia, about the festival. “Everyone stays to support each other until the last band has walked off stage.”
The 2018 iHeartCountry Festival will be held in Austin, Texas, at the Frank Erwin Center on May 5. Tickets for the 2018 iHeartCountry Festival will go on sale to the general public on March 2 at 12 p.m. CST.
