Stoney LaRue, the Eli Young Band and the Josh Abbott Band are scheduled to headline Crude Fest 2017 in mid-May, and on Monday (April 3), festival organizers revealed the event's daily lineups for this year.

On Friday (May 19), the Eli Young Band will take the Crude Fest stage as headliners. They'll be joined by Cody Johnson, Jason Boland, Mike Ryan, Mark McKinney, the Judson Cole Band, Clete Bradley & the Mood and the Chet Johnson Band.
The Josh Abbott Band will close out Crude Fest 2017 on Saturday (May 20). But, before they play, festivalgoers will be treated to sets from Wade Bowen, William Clark Green, Kyle Park, Sam Riggs, Flatland Cavalry, Dalton Domino and Bri Bagwell throughout the day.
A three-day celebration of Texas and Red Dirt country music, Crude Fest was founded in 2009 by a Midland resident who had a passion for Texas country music and wanted to unite the area to celebrate Texas culture and music.
"Crude Fest is an extraordinary event featuring some of the biggest names in Texas country music," says Dhruv Prasad, executive vice president of live events for Townsquare Media, Inc., one of the festival organizers, "and we can’t wait for everyone to see what we have in store this year.”
