Dover, Delaware -- The organizers behind Stagecoach and Firefly music festivals have created Big Barrel Country Music Festival, to take place in 2015 from June 26-28 at The Woodlands of Dover International Speedway, where Firefly will be held the weekend prior.

The inaugural festival will feature headliners Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, and Carrie Underwood as well as Jake Owen, Chris Young, Gary Allan, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Loretta Lynn, and Merle Haggard. Scroll down for the full lineup. 

In addition to a roster of today's biggest names in Country, Big Barrel will host a Harvest Moon Dance Hall, Barn Burner Saloon, The Patch, a family-friendly area, and a marketplace displaying a variety of western goods. Camping options range from tent camping to RV packages to the Corral Club, which provides a private air-conditioned tent. 

The announcement of Big Barrel Country Music Festival comes less than two months after the news of FarmBorough's debut in NYC. Produced by the brains behind Governors Ball, Farmborough will host names like Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, and Brad Paisley on Randall's Island the week following Gov Ball. Both of these events follow the Coachella-Stagecoach model of the country festival taking place in the same location the week following a more genre-encompassing fest. 

Tickets to Big Barrel will go on sale today at Noon EST starting at $99 for a 3-day GA pass. 

Full Lineup: Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, Jake Owen, Chris Young, Gary Allan, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Loretta Lynn, Merle Haggard, Eric Paslay, Jon Pardi, Sturgill Simpson, Dan + Shay, Cassadee Pope, Charlie Worsham, Jane Kramer, The Oak Ridge Boys, Joel Crouse, Chris Stapleton, The Del McCoury Band, Shakey Graves, Billy Joe Shaver, Nikki Lane, Jackie Lee, Logan Mize, Hurray for the Riff Raff, Wade Bowen, Caitlin Rose, Steven Lee Olsen, The Felice Brothers, The Stray Birds, Sam Lewis, The Deslondes, Whiskey Shivers, Drake White and the Big Fire.
