Just two after holding its 2021 event, the Lakefront Music Fest has announced its headliner for 2022.
Organizers Prior Lake Rotary announced Monday that Toby Keith will perform at the annual country music festival next year, which comes after it described this past weekend's festival as its "most successful ever," with record crowds on both nights.
That was despite Saturday night's headliner, Lady A, dropping out at the last minute because lead singer Charles Kelley was diagnosed with appendicitis.
The show went ahead with extended sets from Jake Owen and Noah Guthrie, which came after performances by Styx, 38 Special, and Cheap Trick on Friday.
“We are thrilled to announce our 2022 country headliner will be Toby Keith,” said event Co-Chair Frank Boyles. “We are committed to bringing top level talent to the event to ensure a great experience for everyone who attends and for our community.”
The 2022 festival's other headliner and the rest of the lineup will be announced in the coming months.
Tickets for the event, which will be held July 8-9, 2022, will cost $75 for both days or $50 per night.
