Florida Georgia Line will host their first-ever FGL Fest music festival on September 7th at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the night before the running of the Big Machine Vodka 400 at The Brickyard powered by Florida Georgia Line NASCAR race.
Last year was supposed to be the inaugural year, but got rained out, and Brian Kelley says, “So there’s just a big build-up of us doing the first annual, anyway. So we’re all jacked. We feel like it’s gonna be even better than it could’ve been. We’ve had a lot of time to plan.”
With FGL Fest being the duo’s own music festival, it means they got to handpick who would be on the bill with them, Kelley explains, “We got Nelly, Blanco Brown, we just added him. He’s got a big ol’ hit runnin’ up radio right now (“The Git Up”). Dan and Shay, who have been on tour with us all year, so we know it’s gonna be something the fans are gonna wanna show up and show out and have a good time.”
The line-up will also include Mitchell Tenpenny, Canaan Smith, who FGL just signed as the flagship artist on their new record label, and brand new Big Machine Records guitar slinger, Payton Smith.
