The lineup for the 2023 Country Thunder music festival has been released, with some major country music stars set to perform in Calgary next summer.

Keith Urban, Tim McGraw and Jon Pardi are among the performers for the 2023 festival, which runs from Aug. 18 to 23 at Fort Calgary.

“2022 proved that the fans in Calgary will always be some of the best in the world,” said Country Thunder Music Festivals CEO Troy Vollhoffer. “That calls for an even bigger and better party for 2023. With Keith Urban, Tim McGraw, and Jon Pardi, we have one of the best lineups from start to finish we’ve had in years, and we cannot wait for Summer 2023.”

“We’re so excited about the headliners,” Country Thunder spokesperson Megan Benoit said on Global News Calgary Thursday morning.

“We’re really excited to have those big names on the stage. I know Keith was supposed to come in 2020 and obviously we couldn’t have him. So we’re excited to have him back.”
