All the excitement surrounding this year’s shows has us reminiscing about all the fun we had at the 2016 event. Last year’s Birds Nest lineup consisted of country superstars Dierks Bentley, Rascal Flatts and Dylan Scott, renowned DJ Tiesto, singer-songwriter Kelley James and pop star Robin Thicke. Keep scrolling to view our photo diary from last year’s festivities. We can’t wait to do it all again next week!

Dierks Bentley


Dierks Bentley consistently releases chart-topping country anthems. He electrified the crowd at the 2016 Birds Nest with his hit singles “Drunk on a Plane,” “5-1-5-0,” “I Hold On,” among many others.



Popular DJ Tiesto made waves at the 2016 Nest by spinning some of his party jams including “Secrets,” “The Only Way Up” and “Split.”

Rascal Flats

Rascal Flatts

The Rascal Flatts are one of country music’s main stays. The award-winning band had the crowd on their feet with their hit songs, “I Like the Sound of That,” “Rewind” and “Life is a Highway.”

Robin Thicke


Robin Thicke hit the stage back in 2016 to sing his number one hit single, “Blurred Lines.” The crowd had a blast dancing to the music and singing along with every word.

The Audience

Perhaps our favorite part of the event was seeing how much fun everyone had dancing along to the music and spending time with their friends. We’ve included a gallery of photos of the 2016 concertgoers below. We can’t wait to add to the collection this year!







We’ll see you again next Wednesday!
