Conroe, Texas, is about to be drawing one heck of a crowd with this lineup.

For a first-year festival, they do it big in Texas. Set to be held at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds, right outside of Houston, from May 10th through the 12th, the Big As Texas Music and Food Festival is letting people know they did not come to play.

Just announced is a STACKED lineup that highlights some of Texas country’s finest and other country music legends.

Big As Texas Festival will host more than 50,000 attendees, and with over 35 artists billed to perform, festivalgoers can enjoy up to 26 hours of live music over the three-day event.

So, who did this festival snag to take the stage?

Headliners include Billy Strings, Dierks Bentley, and Thomas Rhett, with other incredible performers taking the stage throughout the weekend, like  Dwight Yoakam,  Morgan Wade, Clay Walker, 49 Winchester, Midland, Los Lobos, Tracy Byrd, Jamestown Revival, and many more.

“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.”

The festival highlights the up-and-coming music with established artists that all country music fans know and love, making it a mix that music lovers of all ages can enjoy. From bluegrass picking to West Coast twang, Big As Texas Festival ensures they leave a significant mark on the festival industry.

Not only is the festival pulling a killer lineup, but they are also making sure to give back to the community. As suicide and mental health become more prevalent, Big As Texas Festival has decided to donate 10% of net ticket proceeds to non-profit organizations that promote suicide death prevention in Conroe, Texas, and across the state.

The festival is also organizing local therapists, doctors, and organization officials onsite during the festival, highlighting the importance of this cause.

It is about to be a helluva time in Conroe come May 2024.
