Just a week after he played another sold-out concert at Target Center, Keith Urban has been confirmed as one of the headliners for the 2017 edition of the Winstock Country Music Festival.

Brantley Gilbert, Little Big Town, burgeoning duo LoCash and the good ol’ boys of Lynyrd Skynyrd were also named on the lineup for the 24th annual musical campout, taking place June 9-10 in Winsted, Minn. Other names on the schedule include Tucker Beathard, Drake White & the Big Fire, Lindsey Ell, Ryan Hurd, Runaway June, Brooke Eden and Chris Hawkey.

Urban might be the biggest (or at least best-drawing) name yet to play Winstock, which has upped its star power in recent years to keep up with the plethora of major country music fests in the Upper Midwest, including Moondance Country Jam near Walker, Minn., and the ever-popular We Fest in Detroit Lakes. Winstock holds two advantages over these other festivals: It’s nearest to the Twin Cities (about an hour west of Minneapolis) and comes first, arriving on the early end of summer.

VIP passes to the fest are already sold out, but two-day general-admission tickets and reserved seats are on sale for $110 and $175, respectively, via WinstockFestival.com.
