Kenny Chesney and Lady Antebellum have been confirmed for next summer’s Cavendish Beach Music Festival, July 5-7, 2013.

Festival organizers issued the following news release.

Hot off the heels of what Pollstar reports as the biggest stadium tour of the year, and the highest grossing tour of the summer, Chesney will make a tour stop in Cavendish headlining the festival on Saturday, July 6.

The Billboard Touring Awards recently honoured Chesney with the Top Package award for his “Brothers of the Sun” tour that hit $100 million. He also went home that night with the “Road Warrior” award, celebrating uncommon work ethic, professionalism and artistic integrity.

On Sunday, July 7 the #1 CBMF fan requested act to return will do just that.

Lady Antebellum returns as the seven-time Grammy award-winning trio, now one of country music’s top selling tours, constantly breaking attendance records and selling out arenas in advance. ‘Lady A’ also took home some hardware at this year’s Billboard Touring Awards earning the “Billboard Breakthrough Award” for their headlining “Own the Night 2012 World Tour.”

Remembering the most talked about show in festival history, president Jeff Squires recalls how Lady Antebellum’s prior performance has the most vivid memories, “Fans tell me all the time that even though it poured rain, they had their best live show experience ever that night. Lady A is a class-act who just knows how to connect with their audience.”

“With today’s announcements of the biggest touring acts in country music, Kenny Chesney and the return of Lady Antebellum, with 30-plus world-class artists yet to be announced, we’re expecting to have the biggest show yet in Cavendish.’’

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 23, at Confederation Centre of the Arts or on the festival’s website.

    I have seen Kenny Chesney 3 times in Pittsburgh and once in Detroit and until you have seen him live in concert you have no idea how good he really is the concert that he puts on is above anyone else it is worth every penny and if you can buy his live dvd then you will see what a great time this is going to be i am from Nova Scotia and i cant wait to go there plus Luke Bryan is playing Friday night another great performer so until you have seen him live well you know what i would like to say to everyone else who is going and seeing him live for the first time you will not be disappointed.

    What is wrong with you people. If they brought the Backstreet Boys would you be happy. This is a COUNTRY festival. It will stay a COUNTRY festival. If YOU DON'T LIKE IT, DON'T COME. Believe you me, we won't miss you. The thousands of true fans will be having fun and you will be home moaning and groaning like usual.

      It's "Cavendish Beach MUSIC Festival" not "Cavendish Beach COUNTRY MUSIC Festival". I agree with a genre change up.

    Repeats Kenny Chesney is not a repeat Lady A Is in high demand to come back, ask and you shall receive. Kenny Chesney is one of the Top country artist in the World and I for one can't wait to see him live. Its going to be one hell of a show. Stay home if you don't like the line up the fact of the matter is you bring in one Major headliner like Kenny Chesney that sells pretty much your whole weekend . The place will be packed with or with out you.
