iHeartMedia has announced the lineup for the third annual iHeartCountry Festival, set to take place in Austin, Texas, in late April.
The event's 2016 lineup is filled with country's biggest names, including Brett Eldredge, Thomas Rhett, Sam Hunt, Miranda Lambert, Lee Brice, Chris Young, Keith Urban, the Zac Brown Band, Florida Georgia Line and Cole Swindell among the currently announced performers. More artists will be announced in the weeks leading up to the show, which will be hosted by radio personality Bobby Bones.
“The country format has great talent and on-air personalities who have such a strong bond and loyalty with their fans," says Tom Poleman, president of national programming platforms for iHeartMedia, "and there is no better way to celebrate that relationship than at a live event."
The 2016 iHeartCountry Festival is scheduled for April 30 at Austin's Frank Erwin Center. Tickets to the event will be available beginning on Jan. 15 via TexasBoxOffice.com. The event will also be streamed live and broadcast via iHeartMedia-owned channels; more information about live streams and broadcasts will be announced at a later date.
