Florida Georgia Line Comes To Summerfest 2015 | Ticket King

Florida Georgia Line Summerfest 2015 Summerfest announced its first headliner of the 2015 Marcus Amphitheater lineup on Thursday. Country stars Florida Georgia Line will open the forty-seventh installment of the world's largest music festival on June 24, 2015. The duo will be joined by special guests Frankie Ballard and Thomas Rhett at the Marcus Amphitheater that night.

The announcement of Summerfest's first act of 2015 comes after an unprecedented 2014 season. The festival, held on Milwaukee's lakefront, drew nearly 900,000 patrons to the grounds and hosted over 800 performers this summer. More than 600 international and American media outlets covered the event, the most in Summerfest history, spurred by increased sponsor interest, employment, concession sales, and a lineup that featured the likes of Lady Gaga, Dave Matthews Band, and Bruno Mars, to name just a few.

2015 marks Florida Georgia Line's third appearance at the Summerfest grounds, though it will be the duo's first as headliners at the Marcus Amphitheater. In 2012, Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley, played an afternoon show at a side stage before earning a opening spot for Luke Bryan the following year. This past su
mmer, the pair made an unexpected stop at the festival as surprise guests at another Luke Bryan show.

Kelley, a native of Florida, and Hubbard, from Georgia, formed one of country's biggest contemporary acts in 2010 at Belmont University. The group's debut EP, Anything Like Me, was released later that year, managing the attention of Jason Aldean, who featured one of the release's songs on his own album.

The pair went on to put out their first full-length studio album in 2012, which earned them a trio of opening roles on tours with Luke Bryan, Taylor Swift, and Jason Aldean since, as well as a full fledged tour of their own. Florida Georgia Line's June 2015 stop at Summerfest will be part of their Anything Goes Tour, featuring selections from their second album released in October.
