This year’s iHeartCountry Festival lineup in Austin will have fans rushing to mark their calendars to grab tickets to the May 5 event at the Frank Erwin Center. iHeartMedia host Bobby Bones will introduce the big name country artists taking the stage such as Luke Bryan, Keith UrbanSugarland, Cole SwindellMaren Morris, Luke Combs, Brett Young, Dustin Lynch, Billy Currington, Dan + Shay and Jon Pardi.

Part of what makes this day of music so noteworthy is the comradery amongst artists. “What makes this festival special is that it is the one night the A-list of country music comes together to perform live, collaborate with friends and spend time together as a family,” John Sykes, President of Entertainment Enterprises for iHeartMedia, said in a press release. “Everyone stays to support each other until the last band has walked off stage.”

This year’s festival will benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital along with other charities still to be announced. Tickets for the general public will go on sale at noon on March 2nd on the Texas Box Office website.

If you’re an AT&T customer, you can purchase tickets early via a promo code starting on Feb. 27 at 10:00 AM, but you’ll need to download the AT&T THANKS app for the code. Read more about the pre-sale here, and keep an eye out for addiontal news about the festival here.
