Las Vegas is betting on country music, upping the ante with superstar talent for Sin City's first-ever country festival. Route 91 Harvest, a three-day event set for the Lot across from Luxor Hotel & Casino, will take place October 3-5 and will feature Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley, Jason Aldean and Brantley Gilbert. Tickets go on sale August 1st at 10:00 a.m. PST.
Other performers on tap for the event include Dwight Yoakam, Randy Houser, Dustin Lynch, Neal McCoy, Ashley Monroe, Tyler Farr, Charles Esten and Clare Bowen ("Deacon" and "Scarlett" from ABC's Nashville), Dan + Shay, Josh Thompson, Sam Hunt, Lindsay Ell and Dee Jay Silver.
Also available for attendees are room upgrades at MGM Resorts International properties and ticket upgrades featuring special amenities, such as exclusive bar access, elevated stage views, lounge seating and massage services.
Las Vegas has become country music's home away from home. It's the site for the annual Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards broadcast, which takes place in the spring and is accompanied by a week-long list of country shows in different Vegas venues. Garth Brooks wrapped his three-year residency at the Wynn Las Vegas last fall, while fellow country superstar Shania Twain will conclude her 2012-2014 run of shows at Caesar's Palace later this month.
