A new country music festival comes to Las Vegas this fall, and the only thing bigger than the inaugural lineup is the size of said performers’ belt buckles.
Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley and Brantley Gilbert are but of a few of the acts who will perform at the Route 91 Harvest festival, which takes over The Lot across from the Luxor on Oct. 3-5.
Other artists include Tyler Farr, Dwight Yoakam, Randy Houser, Dustin Lynch, Neal McCoy and many more.
The festival’s name is a nod to Las Vegas Boulevard, which was originally known as Route 91.
It joins Life Is Beautiful, also held in October, and Rock In Rio, which debuts on the Strip in 2015, as major music festivals
that have recently come to Vegas.
The Lot, where Route 91 Harvest will take place, has hosted other big music events, such as the hard rock-centric 48 Hours Festival in October 2011 and the Warped Tour in 2012.
Early bird three-day passes for the festival are $169 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Aug. 1.
