2014 ACM Party for a Cause Festival Lineup Announced
Once again, Las Vegas is going country for the week of the ACM Awards, and an all-star lineup will pack the stands at LINQ on the Vegas strip as Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban, Florida Georgia Line and more have been announced as performers for the 2014 ACM Party for a Cause Festival.
The two-day annual outdoor music festival is booked for April 4-5, 2014, leading up to the highly anticipated 49th Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday night, April 6.
The Outnumber Hunger Live! concert series on April 4 will benefit Outnumber Hunger, an initiative that helps fight hunger in local communities, which to date has secured more than 25 million meals for local food banks. Performing that evening on the Main Stage will be the Flatts, Danielle Bradbery, Justin Moore, Cassadee Pope, Thomas Rhett, Florida Georgia Line and the Cadillac Three. Will Hoge, Chase Rice and Charlie Worsham will perform on the Party Stage.
Saturday, the country music festivities will continue. Presented by ACM Lifting Lives, the day will benefit several military philanthropies, with Urban headlining. Other exciting performances include Lee Brice, Brett Eldredge, Tyler Farr, Kip Moore, Joe Nichols, Jerrod Niemann, Chris Young, Love and Theft and Parmalee.
“The Academy is honored to have Rascal Flatts and Keith Urban headline two separate nights of incredible music during The Week Vegas Goes Country,” says Bob Romeo, CEO of the Academy of Country Music. “Fans nationwide plan their vacations around ACM events, and they will be blown away by the LINQ and all that Caesars has put into the property. We’re privileged to be the first event in this very special space."
The clock will strike midnight Saturday evening, but the party won't stop. ACM After Hours With Jerrod Niemann & Friends will kick off, featuring rocking performances from Farr, Niemann, American Young, Natalie Stovall and the Drive and the Swon Brothers.
And after that, fans will gear up for a night of more music and awards, speeches and red carpet appearances. The 2014 ACM Awards will air Sunday, April 6, 2014 at 8PM ET on CBS.
