See the country superstars lined up for Country 500 Music Fest at Daytona in 2017

BY foxsports • October 5, 2016

The Daytona 500 is the Great American Race and the Coke Zero 400 is an Independence Day celebration at Daytona International Speedway, but not much is more American than a giant country music festival.

For the second consecutive year, the Country 500 Music Festival will join the patriotic affair at Daytona on Memorial Day weekend, May 26-28, 2017.

The lineup for the festival recently released with country superstars like Blake Shelton, Kid Rock, Keith Urban, Hank Williams Jr., Thomas Rhett, Martina McBride, Miranda Lambert, and Maddie & Tae, among over 30 performers.

"After a successful inaugural event, the lineup of artists for the 2017 Country 500 music festival is going to be another who's who of entertainers," Daytona International Speedway President Chip Wile said. "The Country 500 has quickly become one of the most anticipated festivals of the year and we encourage guests to start making their plans to spend the Memorial Day Weekend enjoying all the sights and sounds at the 'World Center of Racing.'"

At the inaugural event in 2016, over 75,000 fans turned out for the three-day festival inside of Daytona.

One of the selling points of the event is that fans can park their RVs in the middle of the infield at the track, which is right in view of the main stage at the festival.

Those camping packages, along with three-day weekend and VIP passes are available as part of an early-bird special now through Oct. 28.

There will be opportunities to meet the country music stars along pit road and in the garage areas throughout the weekend, along with food trucks, carnival rides, arcade games, and more.
