The Americana Music Association announced today the remaining 52 artists slated to perform at the annual AMERICANAFEST®: The Americana Music Festival & Conference, which runs from September 11-16 in Nashville, TN.
For the 19th consecutive year, the six-day festival and conference will once again fill the city with legends, newcomers, award-winners, and buzz-worthy artists, showcasing the breadth of Americana’s influence on a global scale. With over 250 artists and bands participating, the event promises to be, as described by MOJO Magazine, the “roots alternative to the GRAMMYs® and South by Southwest.”
