Organizers announced the concert in June.

“It continues to be an honor to watch Live Fest grow into a nationally recognized must-see music festival extravaganza,” said Live Fest founder Steve Hagenbuckle in a June news release. “We feel fortunate to continue to attract Best in Class Performers to beautiful Naples, FL. Creating memories and putting smiles on faces is always our collective goal.”

The QBE Shootout is a PGA Tour event that takes place Dec. 5-11 at Tiburon Golf Club. Live Fest follows the second round of the QBE Shootout at about 5 p.m.

The concert staging area will include a beer garden, many concession options and limited-edition merchandise.
