PHOENIX — When we said there was a lot of music news this week, we weren’t kidding: Country Thunder announced part of its 2018 Arizona lineup on Friday.

Some big names — Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Toby Keith and Cole Swindell — will headline the annual four-day music festival held in Florence, about 60 miles southeast of the Valley.

Country Thunder has not announced the specific dates as to when each act will hit the stage, but you can check out the full lineup for yourself below. More performers will be added at a later date.

Tickets for the April 5-8 festival were still available. A full weekend pass cost $160.

Both campgrounds and VIP tickets were sold out, but upgraded campgrounds — think full beds, air-conditioned tents and a refrigerator — could still be had for $2,900.

Single-day tickets were not yet on sale.

More than 29,000 people attended the festival in 2016.

The festival has been coming to Arizona for the past 23 years.

The Country Thunder lineup came just days after the inaugural Innings Festival in Tempe announced its full list of performers.

Kid Rock, Demi Lovato and Maroon 5 all said in that past few days that they would play an upcoming show in Phoenix.

We want to hear from you.
