BILOXI, Miss. (AP) - The Charlie Daniels Band, Dustin Lynch and Three Days Grace are among the headliners for the 22nd annual Crawfish Music Festival that runs over two weekends this spring.
The festival opens Easter weekend, April 17-20, and continues April 24-27, at the Coast Coliseum in Biloxi.
The Sun-Herald reports the musical lineup reflects organizers' efforts to bring in up-and-coming acts on the cusp of stardom. Others scheduled to perform include Cole Swindell, Thomas Rhett, Blackjack Billy, Colt Ford, Clare Dunn, Josh Thompson, Justin Moore and Sunday Best.
Matt McDonnell, the coliseum's assistant director, says Lynch's single "Cowboys and Angels" reached platinum level and Rhett's debut album went to number two on the country charts.
Officials say the festival draws up to 55,000 people each year.
