The Next From Nashville stage showcases upcoming talent with artists introducing their music in between sets by the main stage performers.
The three-day festival will feature headline performances from Miranda Lambert, Rascal Flatts, Thomas Rhett and Little Big Town.
Country LakeShake was launched in 2015 and has quickly built a reputation as an all-compassing experience that provides festival-goers a city break vibe, and has become a must-play festival within the artist community.
As well as the music, fans can enjoy the Blackhawks Bar, which is returning for a second year, as well as new offerings including Silent Disco Line Dancing, Wine Lounge, Food Trucks, Kids Zone and additional games and activities.
