2016 WE Fest Lineup Expands by Four Acts
Four artists with nearly two dozen No. 1 hits between them have been added to the 2016 WE Fest lineup. Lee Brice, Billy Currington, Gary Allan and Montgomery Gentry will join previously announced headliners Eric Church, Tim McGraw and Kid Rock at Soo Pass Ranch next August.
The 2016 WE Fest lineup promises nearly two dozen country stars over the three-day camping and country music festival. This will be Currington and Brice's first appearance at the fest, now in its 34th year. The Georgia-raised Currington is one of country music's most reliable hitmakers, with hits like "Good Directions," "Must Be Doin' Somethin' Right" and "People Are Crazy." Brice's hits include chart-toppers like "I Don't Dance" and "I Drive Your Truck." Both are working on new albums for 2016.
Allan and MoGent have performed at the festival on four other occasions. "Nothing on But the Radio" and "Every Storm (Runs Out of Rain)" are two of the Californian's biggest hits, while Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry are known for rowdy hits like "Gone" and "Something to Be Proud Of."
Tickets for the Aug. 4-6 festival in Detroit Lakes, Minn. are now on sale, starting at $139 for a three-day pass. VIP packages are also available, as are camping packages. WE Fest General Manager Bob Bliss promises more announcements in the coming weeks. Stay up to date on all country music festivals with Taste of Country's official 2016 Country Music Festivals Guide.
