We Fest 2013 is just around the corner, but you don’t have to wait until it’s over to find out who’s playing We Fest 2014. Organizers of Minnesota’s biggest annual music fest – and one of the biggest country music fests in the country – have announced the three big names headed to their Detroit Lakes campout Aug. 7-9, 2014. All three suit the event’s rowdy vibe to a T. Here they are:

JASON ALDEAN: He was a We Fest headliner just last year and played there in 2010 and 2008, too (so probably 2016 then?). He also headlined Xcel Energy center in February 2012.

BRAD PAISLEY: Consistently one of country music’s best live performers, he looks to be taking a rare year off from playing Minnesota (he sold out the X last year). So he’ll likely be the top draw up in Detroit Lakes. He was last at We Fest in 2011.

ZAC BROWN BAND: The Georgian jammers just played Target Field with Kenny Chesney and Target Center last November and the November before that, so they’re threatening to saturate the market. However, somehow they have never played We Fest before.

With the lineup announcement come the tickets, now on sale via WeFest.com starting at $99 for three-day general admission. Tickets are also still on sale for this year’s We Fest, taking place Aug. 1-3 with two much wussier headliners, Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood, plus Eric Church.
