Would you like to help charities and see a concert at the same time? In a fun-filled Las Vegas weekend, you’ll get to do both.

To kick off the 48th annual Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards on April 7, Outnumber Games and Kix Brooks are teaming up to host the ACM Party for a Cause Festival on April 5 and 6, a special concert at the Orleans Arena to raise charity and awareness with special presentations for Wounded Warrior Project®, Folds of Honor and Nellis Air Force Base Youth Education Programs, in addition to many others.

The ACM Party for a Cause Festival will commence with The Band Perry headlining on April 5 and Dierks Bentley on April 6. Additional performers during the two-day festival include Greg Bates, Lee Brice, Kix Brooks, Brantley Gilbert, Hunter Hayes, Dustin Lynch, Justin Moore, Cassadee Pope, Eli Young Band, Florida Georgia Line and Love and Theft (see the complete lineup).

“Party for a Cause Festival is adding another layer to The ACM Experience for fans to celebrate country music, as well as learn more about these very deserving organizations,” said Bob Romeo, CEO of the Academy of Country Music. “The Academy has a long history of supporting charitable causes, and we’re honored to be partnering with Big Machine Label Group and these talented artists for such a worthy endeavor.”

The ACM Experience includes free access to the ACM Expo and will be open that Friday and Saturday from 10am to 10pm and Sunday April 7 from 10am to 4pm. The expo includes over 150 vendors and exhibits.

Concert tickets for both days are $55.
