The festival’s second stage, “Next From Nashville,” will return continuing to showcase emerging country artists.

“Our first year in Vegas really exceeded our expectations,” said Brian O’Connell President of Live Nation Country Touring. “We’re definitely using what we learned the first time around and feedback we heard from the fans to change a few things up to make it even better this year. We’re excited for Sin City to go country for the weekend!”

Chris Baldizan, senior vice president of entertainment for MGM Resorts International, said, “Following the success of last year’s event, we are excited to again partner with Live Nation to bring the Route 91 Harvest Festival back to the MGM Resorts Village. This year’s lineup is outstanding and we can’t wait for festival-goers to experience this unique outdoor event on the Las Vegas Strip.”

More than 20,000 fans attended Route 91 Harvest’s inaugural year. The festival received huge critical praise with the Las Vegas Review-Journal heralding the festival as “country’s arrival in Vegas.” Additionally, Rolling Stone Country commented on the festival’s unrivaled setting, as “there were some of Nashville’s finest, belting out their hits with the backdrop of the Luxor pyramid and glimmering Mandalay Bay.”

This year there will be new VIP options available including Neon Lounge VIP passes which will allow festival-goers to enjoy a shaded side stage lounge, upgraded restroom facilities and special access to a cash bar and food concessions.

Keith Urban Working on New Music Slowly but Surely

keith urban

Keith Urban is a busy guy, working on his second season as a judge on “American Idol,” but that hasn’t stopped him from thinking about his next album. He tells Billboard, it’s a process he’s starting, but has not time table.

“just starting work on the next record. I’m sort of doing the preliminary work of figuring out what the next record is. It’s reaching out and talking with people about working with them in the studio, different writers. It’s just lots of ideas and tinkering right now.” That’s a part of the process Urban says he enjoys too: “I sort of like the unknowingness of it. I get in the studio and don’t know what we’re gonna do, and that can be enlightening and sort of revelatory, or it can be incredibly frustrating,” Keith says. “I would like to not have a timetable, but we do have to have an opening night” for a tour to follow.”

Keith will keep touring light the first half of 2015 and into summer playing only sporadic dates along with fairs and festivals throughout the summer.
