The 2016 CMA Music Festival is set to take over Nashville from June 9 through 12, and fans are finally getting their first look at lineups for the massively popular nighttime shows held at Nissan Stadium.

This year, the Country Music Association is revealing the performers for each of the four nights one week at a time, posting the news through their CMA Music Festival 2016 app. The first batch of headliners (taking the stage Thursday, June 9) are Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Miranda Lambert and Rascal Flatts.

The rest of the performers will be revealed on the app each Tuesday for the rest of March, and while tickets for the nightly stadium concerts are already sold out, a wealth of free concerts will be spread out across the city, and passes to Fan Fair X—which features autograph booths, indoor concerts and other fan-centered activities—are still available.
