The "Biggest BBQ Party on Earth" returns to the brick streets of Downtown Tyler on Saturday, May 6, and we have two more dates you're going to want to remember involving this year's festival.

The Bud Light Red Dirt BBQ & Music Festival, presented by Tyler Ford, will reveal its full lineup of artists and barbecue restaurants at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 25, and tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Feb., 1, on the festival's website. 

A total of 22 of the best barbecue restaurants in Texas will be on hand at this year's festival, as well as five artists. This year's acts will take the same stage as The Turnpike Troubadours, Josh Abbott Band, Randy Rogers Band, Whiskey Myers, Stoney LaRue, JB and the Moonshine and William Clark Green, among others.

Red Dirt is expected to sell out for the fourth consecutive year, so tickets will need to be bought quickly. VIP tickets, which are $90 and include early entrance, a festival t-shirt, two drink coupons and access to a VIP area and front of stage, rarely last more than 24 hours.

General admission tickets, will include access to both the BBQ festival and the concert, are $50 and concert-only tickets are $25.

More information on the festival can be found on, as well as the festival's Facebook page.
