The 50th annual Academy of Country Music Awards, taking place at AT&T Stadium on April 19, were always going to be a big deal, but now we know exactly how big with the release of the lineup for the pre-show Party for a Cause Festival.
The two-day festival, hosted by Globe Life Park in Arlington on April 17 and 18, will feature multiple stages of continuous country music from the likes of Dierks Bentley, Clint Black, Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Sam Hunt, Miranda Lambert, Patty Loveless, Ronnie Milsap, Darius Rucker, Dwight Yoakam, Alabama, Eli Young Band, Florida Georgia Line and more.
All of the concerts will be taped for a two-hour special, ACM Presents: Superstar Duets!, which will air on Friday, May 15, on CBS.
Individual tickets for the festival sold out long ago, but you can still get access to the festival and the actual ACM Awards by purchasing newly released packages at Ticketmaster.com. Packages range from $60-$500 while they still last.
In addition to the music, the Party for a Cause Festival will feature interactive experiences, a family-friendly country marketplace with food trucks and vendors from around the country, and more. Proceeds from ticket sales for the festival benefit ACM Lifting Lives®, the charitable arm of the academy.
