ALBERTVILLE, Ala. -- The lineup for Albertville's annual Main Street Music Festival is announced, and with that, organizers say they're expecting the popular event to become even bigger.

A glimpse of last year's Main Street Music Festival shows thousands of people enjoying the fun on the historic downtown streets of Albertville.

Sara Evans is Saturday night's headliner.

This year organizers say the event, slated for August 5 and 6, is expected to be even bigger. "Friday night's acts will be the Velcro Pygmies opening for Blackberry Smoke, and Saturday night will be Craig Campbell opening for Sara Evans," Director of Community and Economic Development Melody Whitten said.

That creates the largest lineup the popular annual festival has ever had. "We've never had four acts before, so we're excited about the number of acts, we're excited about the quality of acts that have had tremendous feedback on our social media and our announcement," Whitten said.

The event draws in thousands of people each year, and had a huge crowd based on last year's lineup.

This year organizers say they might just top that. "We of course are getting added exposure because we were named a top 20 event by the Southeast Tourism Society, and I think that added some additional exposure, but now with the announcement of our lineup I think we are going to blow it out this year and have a larger crowd than we've ever had," Whitten said.

The two-day event boasts food vendors, children's activities, live music, and it's free!
