The Route 91 Harvest Festival will join forces with SiriusXM this year to broadcast live performances from this year’s event October 2-4 in Las Vegas. Route 91 will be the first country festival to be broadcast live on the satellite radio network, and will broadcast select performances by artists on the lineup which includes Florida Georgia Line, Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Jake Owen, and more. Over 20,000 fans attended the festival’s inaugural year.

“I’m thrilled that SiriusXM will be joining us at Route 91 Harvest,” said Brian O’ Connell, Live Nation President of Country Touring. “To have them onsite with us will add to what is already gearing up to be a special festival with a monster lineup and a lot more to be revealed in the coming months leading up to October.”

Dierks Bentley has unveiled plans to open the fourth location of his Whiskey Row chain in Las Vegas in July 2016 at the Monte Carlo’s new eight-acre retail and dining district.

Plans call for a slot in the southern exterior of the MGM Resorts-owned location, housing a new $100 million theater and concert hall. The Vegas location will reportedly serve a “gastropub” menu of dishes like the Whiskey Burger with honey roasted jalapeños, bacon and melted cheddar, Dierk’s Fried Chicken served with bacon smashed potatoes, and desserts such as banana bread pudding topped with vanilla bourbon ice cream. There will also be a specialty menu of Boilermakers and DJs and live music at the Vegas spot.

Bentley already has three Whiskey Row locations, two in his home state of Arizona: Tempe and Scottsdale, and another in Chicago.
