Florida Georgia Line’s 2019 FGL Fest will be held Sept. 7 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Speedway, Indiana, and the lineup is stacked. Newly announced performers include Blanco Brown, Canaan Smith and Payton Smith.
Previously announced special guests include Dan + Shay, Nelly and Mitchell Tenpenny. The event leads up to the Big Machine 400 at the Brickyard Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Race the following day. For tickets and more information, visit Ticketmaster.
This year’s FGL Fest marks the second year the country duo have planned the event. Last year’s inaugural FGL Fest was canceled due to severe weather in the area. The lineup was slated to feature performances from FGL, Cole Swindell, RaeLynn, Nelly, Jillian Jacqueline, Mason Ramsey, Stephanie Quayle and Riley Green.
Long before FGL’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley were creating festivals of their own, they were working them. In an interview with Billboard backstage at Nashville’s CMA Fest 2019 in June, they recalled their early days as aspiring artists.
“My memory of coming to CMA Fest as a fan is me and BK passing out Coke Zero. We were promotional dudes for probably $10 an hour and pumped up about it,” Hubbard says. “We were just passing out free Coke in the sunshine, CMA Fest for probably five days straight. We were dreaming of playing here one year.”
