    Toby Keith will be one of the festival headliners in August 2015.

    Country music stars Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line and Toby Keith will headline the inaugural Delaware Junction outdoor music festival, organized announced.

    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.
