Americanafest 2022 Info.

My beloved Nashville friends it is that time of the year again, that I take some time off my busy schedule to bring you my yearly article for Americanafest! The biggest concern I have right now is the state  Nashville is in. True, this lineup will prove to be another great one, but there are a few venues that closed and other concerns.

The wait is over. We’re excited to bring you our first round of official showcasing artists and bands for AMERICANAFEST 2022, taking place Sept. 13-17 in various venues across Nashville, TN. Check out a list of our first round of 89 performers here.

Make sure to grab your 2022 Festival Pass here by Thursday in order to catch these amazing acts this fall for only $125*. On Friday the rate will go up to $175.

Keep your eyes peeled for more showcases to be added to this already stacked lineup later this summer. And, on top of hundreds of official showcases, our 22nd annual event will feature many special events hosted by friends in our community.

How can I attend these showcases? With a Festival Pass, you can experience four full nights of music in over a dozen showcasing venues in Music City, including seated listening rooms, intimate dive bars, legendary rock rooms and more. You in?
