Final Round of Americana Artists Confirmed
The Americana Music Association℠ announced the final round of almost 300 artists slated to perform at the 18th Annual AMERICANAFEST℠: The Americana Music Festival & Conference, which runs from September 12-17 in Nashville, TN.
The six-day festival will fill the city with legends, newcomers, award winners, and buzz bands, showcasing the breadth of Americana’s influence. With almost 300 artists and bands participating, the event promises to be, as described by MOJO Magazine, the “roots alternative to the GRAMMYs® and South by Southwest.” A list of the 96 performers announced can be found below, bringing this year’s total lineup to almost 300, which can be viewed here.
℠ Conference Registrations (currently $349 for members/$449 for non-members) offer priority admission into all showcase venues, sanctioned parties and events, daytime educational panels, and can be purchased here. At this time, only Conference Registrants may purchase Honors & Awards show tickets. For those just interested in the nightly showcases, a festival wristband will be the most suitable option at the wallet-friendly price of $75. Available on their website, a festival wristband grants admission into all showcase venues as well as select sanctioned parties and special events.
