Luke Bryan, Zac Brown Band Announced as 2017 WE Fest Headliners
Yes, WE Fest can get even bigger. On Saturday night (Aug. 6), the first headliners for 2017 WE Fest were announced to fans at Soo Pass Ranch in Detroit Lakes, Minn. Luke Bryan and the Zac Brown Band will close two of the three nights of country music's biggest camping and country music festival.
The 2017 event will take place Aug. 3-5. Tickets are available online now and on site at the WE Fest ticket booth. Three-day general admission, reserved and VIP are at their lowest prices right now, starting at $99. Next year's WE Fest is the 35th annual WE Fest — a milestone for one of the country's most legendary music events.
Saturday night's announcement came just as Steven Tyler finished his set, but before Tim McGraw's headlining performance. Eric Church and Kid Rock were the two other headliners in 2016, with opening acts like Lee Brice, Billy Currington and Gary Allan highlighting a star-studded festival.
Bryan is currently one of country music's hottest touring artists. His Kill the Lights Tour is selling out arenas, amphitheaters and football stadiums nationwide, and each of his most recent songs from an album of the same name have sky-rocketed to No. 1. ZBB bring a similar resume, with sellouts at every stop on the Southern Ground Tour, including baseball stadiums like Fenway Park. Their most recent album is called Jekyll + Hyde, released in 2015.
