INDIANAPOLIS, Friday, June 29, 2018 - Global entertainers Florida Georgia Line are gearing up for their inaugural outdoor FGL Fest Saturday, Sept. 8 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Announced earlier this year, FGL Fest is a multi-act music event produced by Live Nation and created to coincide with the Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard Powered by Florida Georgia Line race Sept. 9 at IMS. FGL's inclusion in the Big Machine Vodka 400 title marks the first time a major recording artist or act has been added to the official name of a race over a multi-year period.
Speeding into Top 20 at Country radio with their lead single, "Simple," off their hotly anticipated fourth studio album (BMLG Records), FGL continues to reach colossal feats as they're the first act to top Billboard's Country Airplay (Morgan Wallen's "Up Down" featuring FGL), Country Digital Song Sales ("Simple"), and Country Streaming Songs ("Meant to Be" with Bebe Rexha), with a different song on each chart. All three are also currently Top 10 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart with their fated "Meant to Be" reigning for the 30th consecutive week.
Kicking into high gear, the multi-platinum superstar duo will bring those smash hits and more to headline FGL Fest. Running from 3 p.m. through 11 p.m. (ET), the revved-up lineup includes Cole Swindell, Nelly, Raelynn, Jillian Jacqueline, Mason Ramsey, Riley Green and Stephanie Quayle.
FGL's fan club community, FGL Lifers , have first presale access to tickets beginning at 10 a.m. (ET) Monday, July 2 through 10 p.m. (ET) Thursday, July 5 before Citi® cardmembers gain entry starting at 10 a.m. (ET) Tuesday, July 3 through 10 p.m. (ET) Thursday, July 5 with Citi's Private Pass® program.
Tickets go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. (ET) Friday, July 6 at Ticketmaster.com, LiveNation.com, and IMS.com.
Big Machine became the title sponsor of the marquee NASCAR Cup Series race after a nearly decade-long partnership with IMS. The Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard Powered by Florida Georgia Line event features an entire weekend of entertainment for racing and music fans. Besides the NASCAR Cup Series race Sunday, Sept. 9, the Lilly Diabetes 250 for the NASCAR Xfinity Series will race on the IMS oval Saturday, Sept. 8, and the Driven2SaveLives BC39 for the USAC P1 Insurance Midget National Championship will take place Wednesday, Sept. 5 and Thursday, Sept. 6 on the new quarter-mile dirt track at IMS. The annual Hauler Parade also will provide plenty of family fun Friday, Sept. 7 on Main Street in Speedway.
