Academy of Country Music announces inaugural Hangover Fest

Event will take place in Las Vegas

The Academy of Country Music (ACM) has announced the inaugural Hangover Fest 2022 that will benefit ACM Lifting Lives. Jordan Davis, Hardy, Dustin Lynch, Scotty McCreery and Lainey Wilson will headline the March 6th event at the House of Blues Las Vegas at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

Tenille Townes and Conner Smith are among the first round of supporting artists. Additional acts will be announced in the coming weeks.

“After spending the last two years supporting our country music community through this COVID pandemic, I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the important work of ACM Lifting Lives than reuniting for a show in Las Vegas with fans, industry, and The Morning Hangover,” says ACM Lifting Lives Executive Director, Lyndsay Cruz.

Tickets for Hangover Fest 2022 go on sale Friday, January 28th at 10 PT via Ticketmaster. Artist pre-sales begin Wednesday, January 26th.

The event aligns with the 57th Annual ACM Awards which takes place on Monday, March 7th at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. Country music’s favorite party and musical event of the year will stream on Prime Video in the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the UK, marking the first time a major awards show has livestreamed exclusively.
