The LINQ entertainment district at the heart of the Las Vegas Strip tabbed a couple of country superstars as its first live music offerings this April.
Rascal Flatts and Keith Urban are slated to headline the Academy of Country Music Party for a Cause Festival set for April 4-5.
The outdoor festival will also include Joe Nichols, Jerrod Niemann, Thomas Rhett, Chris Young and The Cadillac Three.
Two-day passes for the event go on sale Friday, Jan. 24 at 10 a.m.
The festival will serve as a precursor to the Academy of Country Music Awards taking place on April 6 at Mandalay Bay Events Center.
According to organizers, the slated country acts will perform on multiple stages at the LINQ. The festival will also include interactive games and a country marketplace.
The event also marks one of the first live music stagings for the new LINQ.
"We are thrilled to kick off the first of many large-scale concerts and events at The LINQ with the Academy of Country Music," said Jon Gray, vice president and general manager of The LINQ.
Tickets for Party for a Cause will be available at ticketmaster.com.
