CMA Fest kicks off tonight in downtown Nashville

The CMA Fest 2024 will officially commence in downtown Nashville this evening, running from 6-9 June. Celebrating its 51st year, the festival continues to connect fans with country music and provide support to the CMA Foundation.

For four nights, country music fans will get to watch the brightest and best country music artists performing on the main stage, with over 200 artists, there’s more than enough to keep any country fan content. If making the entire festival is too much, fans can also opt to see a day (or two!) of shows, making sure that everyone gets the best out of their CMA Fest experience.

The festival features four days and nights of live music, including four nights of all-star shows at Nissan Stadium and numerous daily concerts at free stages throughout downtown Nashville. The entirety of downtown Nashville is about to be a huge country music party – and everyone is invited.

Hundreds of artists perform for free to support the CMA Foundation’s mission of enriching music education programmes across the USA. Attendance at CMA Fest contributes to ensuring that every student, regardless of their situation, has access to high-quality music education.

The lineup for this year includes stars such as Kelsea Ballerini, Brothers Osborne, Luke Bryan, Jordan Davis, HARDY, Jelly Roll, Cody Johnson, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Ashley McBryde, Parker McCollum, Megan Moroney, Jon Pardi, Carly Pearce, The War and Treaty, Thomas Rhett, Keith Urban, Lainey Wilson and Bailey Zimmerman.

The festival also offers a variety of free activities for all ages, including games, activities, and giveaways at five free daytime outdoor stages featuring over 200 artists. The full lineup can be viewed on the official CMA Connect app, so you’ll never miss a thing!

The Riverside Retreat provides a more comfortable festival experience for those who prefer to go without the stress of finding seats and waiting in line for the bathroom. With early admission to the Chevy Riverfront Stage, outdoor and shaded seating, private restrooms, drink specials and other amenities.

CMA Fest 2024 is about to bring us another year of celebrating country music, while supporting a cause aimed at improving music education nationwide.
