Thomas Rhett, Dierks Bentley and Billy Strings will spearhead the music lineup for the inaugural Big as Texas Festival slated for May 10-12, 2024, at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds in Conroe, Texas, just outside of Houston.

In addition to Bentley, Strings and Rhett, the lineup also includes 49 Winchester, Anne Wilson, Clay Walker, Amanda Shires, Dwight Yoakam, Hannah Dasher, Maddie & Tae, Midland, Morgan Wade, Tracy Byrd, Julia Cole and Warren Zeiders.

The three-day festival will feature more than 26 hours of live music from 35 artists. The curated performance lineup also nods heavily to the festival’s Texas stomping grounds; one-third of the artists set to perform hail from the Lone Star State.

“We are stepping out in grand fashion for our inaugural year, and I couldn’t be more excited about the stellar music lineup we have curated for next May. It’s ultimately meant to be representative of the many facets of country and Americana music because we like to think there is something for everyone at Big as Texas Fest,” Big as Texas’ co-executive producer and talent buyer Steve Said noted in a statement.

“With an incredible lineup secured for year one, my team and I now turn our attention to curating all of the major aspects of the festival-going experience for fans — from the food and drink to the nonprofit partnerships to the immersive activations. We already have a lot of amazing plans in store for our fans, and I’m hopeful Texans will show out in major form to support our independent locally owned festival,” added Big As Texas’s co-executive producer Trey Diller, a lifelong resident and community advocate based in the Conroe community.

Beyond music, the festival will offer activities including custom car shows, equestrian exhibitions, art installation and camping.

Additionally, the festival aims to give back by focusing on raising awareness around mental health issues and suicide prevention. Festival organizers will invite local experts, doctors, therapists and more to join onsite in May. In addition to offering resources during the festival, organizers will donate 10 percent of net ticket proceeds from each individual ticket sold to 501 (c)(3) nonprofits that promote suicide prevention in Montgomery County and across Texas.

Three-day general admission passes are on sale now at bigastexasfest.com.

The 100 Best Pop Songs Never to Hit the Hot 100: Staff List

Last week at Billboard, we spent three days counting down the 500 best pop songs to ever hit the Billboard Hot 100, in honor of the chart’s 65th anniversary. And really, that’s just the tip of the iceberg: With well over 30,000 songs reaching the Hot 100 across its six and a half decades of existence, we could have easily gone another 500 deep — maybe even 5,000 deep — and still kept coming up with more beloved pop classics.
