Brad Paisley, Eric Church and Sam Hunt to Headline 2016 Big Barrel Festival

Country fans in Delaware have a lot to look forward to next year. The lineup for the 2016 Big Barrel Festival was announced earlier today (Oct. 26), and features Brad Paisley, Eric Church and Sam Hunt as headliners.

The second annual country music festival, which is held on the grounds of Dover International Speedway in Dover, Del., will be held June 24 through the 26th. The lineup is an impressive one, and includes some of the top talent from all facets of country.

The lineup includes Hank Williams Jr., Eli Young Band, The Band Perry, Lee Brice, Tyler Farr, Martina McBride, Nashville stars Clare Bowen and Charles Esten, Travis Tritt, Dwight Yoakam, Brothers Osbourne, Jerrod Niemann, Marty Stuart, Ashley Monroe, Neil McCoy, Mark Chesnutt, and Clare Dunn.

Alt-country and Americana is well represented by Jason Isbell, Parker Milsap, Robert Ellis,  Pokey LaFarge and the Turnpike Troubadours.

Although it may seem a little early to be planning out your summer festivals, you should definitely pick up your tickets early for this one, as the price will likely rise rapidly over the coming months.

Three-day general admission passes, which will be available for $149, as well as VIP packages and camping passes go on sale on Friday at 10 a.m. CDT through BigBarrel.com.
