Get ready to rock, Austin! In just a few months, the Texas capitol will be swarmed with cowboy boot-sporting singers when iHeartRadio celebrates its beloved country music festival for a third year in a row. The event will be held at the Frank Erwin Center in April.
The star-studded concert will feature some of the biggest names in country, including Miranda Lambert, Lee Brice, Chris Young, Keith Urban, Zac Brown Band, Florida Georgia Line, Sam Hunt, Brett Elredge, Thomas Rhett and Cole Swindell. The remainder of the lineup will be announced at a later date.
So how can country fans catch this can’t-miss show? Well, tickets will go on sale Friday, Jan. 15 at 10 a.m. CT via Ticketmaster.com. But for those who can’t attend the foot-tapping event on Saturday, April 30, iHeartRadio revealed that the third annual country music festival will be both streamed and broadcasted so that fans all over the world can rock out to the western tunes.
In 2015, the event was streamed exclusively on Yahoo Live, broadcasted for fans nationwide on iHeartRadio's country radio stations and televised in a two-hour special on NBC.
"Country is one of the most vibrant and exciting genres in music today," Tom Poleman, iHeartMedia's President of National Programming Platforms , spoke of the event in 2015. "I love that our iHeartRadio Country Festival gives us an opportunity to showcase such an amazing lineup of incredible artists and music not only live in Austin, but across the country on our stations, Yahoo and NBC."
According to iHeartRadio, streaming and broadcasting details of the 2016 festival will soon be announced.
