Country music superstar Hank Williams Jr., along with Clay Walker and local counry band Lost Highway, will perform on an outdoor stage Aug. 14 at Treasure Island Resort & Casino.
Island Fest will get under way at 4 p.m. with Lost Highway, a Wanamingo area band.
Clay Walker, an established country star in his own right, will perform at around 5:20 p.m., Treasure Island spokesmen said.
"Walker is one of the most successful country performers of the last decade and is still creating hits, including his latest, 'She Won't Be Lonely Long.' Other hits include 'Rumor has It,' 'If I Could Make a Living,' 'Fall' and 'Dreamin' with My Eyes Open.'"
Hank Williams Jr. is the "original country boy," spokesmen added. "His rousing live performances amaze and excite crowds, from his classic hits 'A Country Boy Can Survive', 'Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound,' and 'All My Rowdy Friends' to his latest hit, 'Stirring It Up.'"
Williams will take the stage about 7 p.m.
Island Fest will combine country music with food and fun. Gates will open at 3 p.m. in the outdoor festival grounds next to the casino. The concert will go on rain or shine.
Bleacher seating will be limited, so people are advised to bring chairs or blankets. It is an all-ages show; no carry-on coolers or pets will be allowed.
General admission tickets for all three shows are $75 at the Island box office, by calling 877-849-1640, or online at www.ticasino.com.
