With the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival lineup set to be unveiled tonight, a string of other multi-day events have been announcing their rosters. The Hangout Festival, held May 15th through 17th in Gulf Shores, Alabama, boasts headliners Zac Brown Band and Foo Fighters, along with country-influenced acts Drive-By Truckers, Jenny Lewis, the Lone Bellow and Steelism, one of Rolling Stone Country‘s Artists You Need to Know.

Rodeo Houston, the annual Texas livestock show and competition running March 3rd through 22nd, also features Zac Brown Band, who just released their new single “Homegrown” and announced a partnership with Scott Borchetta’s Big Machine Label Group. Other nightly headliners at the rodeo include Eric Church, Miranda Lambert, Hunter Hayes, Florida Georgia Line, Tim McGraw, Dierks Bentley, Blake Shelton, Luke Bryan and the Band Perry.

The Perry siblings turn up in Orlando the following month as well, performing at Universal Studios’ Mardi Gras celebration on April 11th. Trace Adkins plays March 7th, with pop queen and country dabbler Kelly Clarkson on February 21st.

Finally, the annual FloydFest, staged near Floyd, Virginia, has announced its typically eclectic lineup. Under this year’s theme of “Fire on the Mountain,” artists like Emmylou Harris, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, Shovels & Rope, Trigger Hippy and American Aquarium are all set to perform. The ubiquitous Drive-By Truckers, who will support Eric Church on select dates of his Outsiders World Tour, are also on the bill.
