Scheduled for Oct. 3-5, the festival is the result of a partnership between Live Nation and MGM Resorts International. It takes its name from the iconic Las Vegas Boulevard’s original name.

Additional artists confirmed include Dan + Shay, Lindsay Ell, Tyler Farr, Randy Houser, Sam Hunt, Dustin Lynch, Neal McCoy, Ashley Monroe, Josh Thompson, Dwight Yoakam and Dee Jay Silver, as well as Charles Esten and Clare Bowen from the ABC series Nashville.

Three-day passes start at $169 and go on sale Aug. 1 at 10 a.m. PST. Gates will open at 2 p.m. on Oct. 2, and the music will conclude each night between midnight and 1 a.m., according to the festival’s website.

The festival will provide fans with the opportunity to upgrade their tickets with special amenities including exclusive bar access, elevated stage views, lounge seating and massage services.

Additionally, Route 91 Harvest attendees will enjoy special room rates at all MGM Resorts International properties starting on Aug. 1. Those properties include Bellagio, Aria, Vdara, MGM Grand, the Signature, Mandalay Bay, the Mirage, Monte Carlo, New York-New York, Luxor, Excalibur and Circus Circus.
