Tim McGraw has been named as one of the headliners for the 2016 WE Fest in Detroit Lakes.

The festival made the announcement on its website Wednesday morning, revealing that the country music legend will headline one of the three nights between Aug. 4-6 at Soo Pass Ranch.

The Fargo Forum notes he will join fellow headliner Eric Church, who up until Wednesday was the only act announced for next year's event.

A three-time Grammy winning artist, McGraw has sold more than 40 million records worldwide, and is a previous performer at WE Fest having taken to the stage in 2009.

"We are pulling out all the stops to bring our fans a festival in 2016 that is sure to be considered the biggest WE Fest yet, so don’t wait to order your tickets and camping for 2016. Get them now!" WE Fest GM Bob Bliss told Taste of Country.

Last year, the event was headlined by Rascal Flatts, Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton.

Tickets for the event are on sale here, starting at $129 for a three-day general admission pass.
