Eric Church, Luke Bryan + More to Perform During ACM Weekend at Fremont Street
The Academy of Country Music just unveiled the lineup for this year's ACM Weekend on Fremont Street Experience, which will take place the Friday and Saturday leading up to the ACM Awards (March 30 and 31) in Las Vegas. The packed-out lineup for the event will feature several ACM nominees, as well as a handful of guests.
Eric Church and Luke Bryan, who are both up for this year's New Artist of the Year award, will both take part in the weekend of music, which is free to the public. Hosting Fremont Street this year will be three-time ACM On-Air Personality of the Year award winner Blair Garner. Other country acts who will be taking the stage include Love and Theft, Hunter Hayes, Brantley Gilbert, Scotty McCreery, Jana Kramer, Craig Campbell, Eli Young Band and Laura Bell Bundy.
In order to handle the crowds that will be coming out for this star-studded event, the Academy will be blocking off five city blocks in Vegas in order to provide a designated entertainment zone. But there's no reason to fear the crowds. Even if you can't inch up to the stage to rub elbows with your favorite talent, the experience will feature the world's largest video screen, measuring in at 1,500 feet long -- so you shouldn't have any trouble getting a glimpse of the show.
Last year's Fremont Street concert series included performances from country talent like Chris Young, Sara Evans and Lee Brice. The ACM Weekend at Fremont Street is just one part of the festivities leading up to the red carpet event, a week better known as 'the week Vegas goes country.' The Fremont Street Experience attracts more than 18 million people annually, so it's not an event you'll want to miss!
