HARRINGTON, Del. (AP) — Organizers say country music stars Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line and Toby Keith will headline the inaugural Delaware Junction outdoor music festival.

The three-day festival will be held at the Delaware State Fairgrounds in Harrington starting Aug. 14.

Tickets go on sale Dec. 19, with three-day passes starting at $199 and multiple camping options available starting at $150 per site.

The Kent County festival is a partnership between entertainment company Live Nation and Delaware-based Highway One LLP, which owns and operates music venues including the Bottle & Cork and Rusty Rudder in Dewey Beach.

Highway One principal Alex Pires initially had envisioned holding the festival on a 1,100-acre farm in Sussex County, but he withdrew a request for a conditional-use permit amid opposition from local residents.
