- Oct. 5, 2015 - The infamous Las Vegas Strip played host to the sold-out Route 91 Harvest crowd this past weekend where over 25,000 fans converged for the second annual three-day, two-stage country music festival. With a superstar lineup including Florida Georgia Line, Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Jake Owen and more, festival-goers enjoyed performances across the weekend as well as everything else the festival had to offer. Fans were able to experience a variety of onsite vendors, Vegas-style hospitality options and the opportunity to discover some of country’s newest talent at the festival’s “Next From Nashville” stage.

Festivities kicked off on Friday with a sold-out crowd enjoying Route 91 Harvest's diverse lineup as "show-closing performances by Thomas Rhett and Florida Georgia Line further cemented the wide range of music performed at this festival.” (Las Vegas Sun)

Sunday ended the festival on a true high as “25,000 screaming fans” (Rolling Stone) basked in the glow of the festival’s stunning backdrop as headliner Tim McGraw delivered a hit-filled set.

“To think that what took place this weekend was only Route 91 Harvest’s second year is just astounding” said Brian O’ Connell President Of Country Touring at Live Nation. “Across the three days the feedback as the artists have come off the stage has been off the scale, they have all been overwhelmed by how crazy and huge the crowd was out there. The support from the fans has meant that we’ve been able to build this festival into something that feels so established in just two short years.”

"We are thrilled with the success of this year's Route 91 Harvest Festival as more than 25,000 fans joined us each day for the festivities at the Las Vegas Village," said Chris Baldizan, senior vice president of entertainment for MGM Resorts International. “Our Live Nation partners once again delivered an incredible entertainment experience while the local community provided us with a tremendous amount of support. We can't wait to see what year three will bring."
