Urban, Brooks & Dunn join Stapleton as co-headliners for WE Fest 2019

DETROIT LAKES — The organizers of WE Fest 2019 have once again landed some of the biggest names in country music for the 37th annual festival.

Superstars Brooks & Dunn and Keith Urban have joined previously announced headliner Chris Stapleton, with each of the three acts taking top billing for one day of the 37th annual festival, which runs Aug. 1-3, 2019 at the Soo Pass Ranch south of Detroit Lakes.

Brooks & Dunn's appearance at the festival is their first since 2009, one year before they retired as a duo. Urban last graced the WE Fest stage in 2013.

WE Fest has also signed up return appearances by Billy Currington and Jake Owen, while Stapleton — who was the first act announced for the 2019 lineup during the 36th annual event this past August — will be making his Soo Pass debut.

Tickets are already on sale, ranging from $120 for a three-day general admission pass to VIP tickets starting at $900. For more information, please visit or call 1-800-4WE-FEST.
