The pandemic may have canceled things last year, but We Fest announced Wednesday it's back for 2021 with headliners Florida Georgia Line, Dierks Bentley and Blake Shelton!

I don't know about you, but I am SOOO ready to see some great live music! And, we'll be able to do that right here in the Land of 10,000 Lakes later this summer at WE Fest in Detroit Lakes!

WE Fest officially announced that not only is the 2021 festival a go, but it's also going to have some amazing country acts! Check it out:

The festival will open with Florida Georgia Line on Thursday, August 5. Dierks Bentley will perform Friday, August 6 and Blake Shelton on Saturday, August 7. Additional performers include: LANCO, Russell Dickerson, Eli Young Band, The Cadillac Three, Lindsay Ell, Maddie & Tae, Ingrid Andress, High Valley and RaeLynn.

Newcomers Larry Fleet, Shy Carter, Kameron Marlowe, 32 Below, Erin Grand, Shane Martin, Trip Wire, and Slamabama are also scheduled to perform. Now THAT is an amazing line-up! Plus, WE Fest said that Kellie Pickler is set to be the official emcee for all three days, as well!

WE Fest has been a fixture up at the Soo Pass Ranch in Detroit Lakes (northwest of the Twin Cities, about 4 and a half away from Rochester) for the past 37 years. A release noted that WE Fest will include many of the favorite elements from the past as well as improvements to the festival grounds and fresh festival attractions. Most notably, this year's festival features an expanded general admission area which will bring fans 200 feet closer to the stage.

Tickets and camping passes are on sale now. In honor of the full lineup announcement, WE Fest is offering a special offer for 3-Day GA wristbands.

Having been around for 37 years, WE Fest is an iconic festival-- and its look has changed a bit since it first hosted its first concert back in 1984. Of course, many brands have changed since then, as well. Keep scrolling to check out what 50 popular company logos looked like back then-- and how they look today!
