Ribfest 2016 lineup: Huey Lewis and the News, the Doobie Brothers, Chris Young and more
Smell that? The Northeast Exchange Club is cooking up plans for Ribfest 2016 -- and the first few bands on the lineup have just been announced.
Huey Lewis and the News will headline Friday's opening night of Ribfest, Nov. 11-13 at Vinoy Park in St. Petersburg. Saturday brings a slate of classic Southern rock with the Doobie Brothers, Blackberry Smoke and Whiskey Myers. And Sunday's country day will be headlined by chart-topping star Chris Young. More acts will be added in the coming months.
Tickets won't actually go on sale for Ribfest unil Sept. 1 online and Oct. 5 at Circle K outlets. They'll cost $25-$30 on Friday and $28-$35 on Saturday and Sunday.
