Previously announced are Maggie Rose, who takes the stage at 4:30 p.m., Dustin Lynch at 5:30 p.m. and Easton Corbin at 7:15 p.m.
On June 28, the opening night of Taste, the musical acts scheduled to perform are Arra at 5 p.m., 7th Heaven at 6 p.m. and REO Speedwagon at 9 p.m. REO was last year's headliner as well, but the band's performance was stopped early after a violent storm moved through the area.
Typically, Taste of Joliet also offers live entertainment on the third day but the acts have not been announced.
Front section tickets for the June 29 lineup have sold out but are still available for the June 28 shows. The cost is $35.
Otherwise, general admission tickets for Taste -- which can be purchased in advance at www.tasteofjoliet.com -- are $10 for adults, $5 for seniors 62 and older and free for children 12 and younger.
