The Florida Strawberry Festival won’t kick off until February, but we already know who’s headlining concerts for the yearly Plant City party.

Today, the festival announced that non-Confederate Flag-waving Southern rockers Lynyrd Skynyrd (March 8) are on the bill along with Reba McEntire (March 1), Rascal Flatts (Feb. 27) and Josh Turner (March 4).

Pop fans will be happy to see 98 Degrees (Feb. 29) while fans of R&B and soul will want to make plans to be in Plant City on March 7 for Charlie Wilson, Patti LaBelle (March 2) and Chubby Checker (March 4).

Some of the concerts are free, but most of them come with a cover price (on top of admission to the festival). Check out the lineup for the 2020 Florida Strawberry Festival below. More information is available via flstrawberryfestival.com.
