Also please join me on December 6th as I watch the CMT coverage of the awards and shows from this one, learn more about that HERE. This eidition as well as ALL OF THE OTHERS will be updated MANY MANY TIMES!

Our conference portion features numerous panels, seminars, exclusive day time performances, and much more, proudly providing Nashville’s most educational music industry forum. This special event covers the interests and needs of artists, managers, labels, radio stations, publishers, agents, promoters, retailers, legal and business affairs executives, merchandisers and new media professionals – all enthusiastically attended and presented by music industry leaders.
 And FYI, you do not have to be a member of the Americana Music Association℠ or in the music industry to purchase a conference registration and attend all the events. We encourage all music lovers to be apart of the conference experience.

If you choose not to be a part of the entire AMERICANAFEST experience through a conference registration, then our festival wristband is the option for you. For six nights, AMERICANAFEST will feature 230+ live performances at almost 40 of Nashville’s most prominent venues and much, much, more! However, wristbands do not guarantee entry if venue is at capacity. In the event of a line, conference registrants have priority access. If there is a must see band on your list we suggest arriving to the venue early.

It’s no secret that music brings people together. 2019 AMERICANAFEST® Festival Wristbands are on sale now for a chance for you and a loved one to discover your next favorite artist in Music City, Sept. 10-15, 2019.

For just $75, you’ll be able to experience hundreds of showcasing acts in various venues across Nashville and have the opportunity to attend select special events that offer even more music, some food and good times.

From intimate singer-songwriter moments over a glass of wine to rocking out a dive bar with a beer in hand, there’s no shortage of memories to be made at our 20th annual AMERICANAFEST.
