Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Dwight YoakamNashville, TN -- The Americana Music Association has unveiled its final round of artists to perform during the 17th Annual Americana Music Festival & Conference, AmericanaFest, to be held in Nashville from September 20-25. The lineup, which features icons, innovators, and up-and-comers, underscores Americana's perennially formative place in the world's musical landscape.

With more the 200 acts performing in 14 venues across Music City, the event promises to live up to its critical acclaim, having been described by MOJO Magazine as the "roots alternative to the GRAMMYs and South by Southwest." These new performers join previously mentioned acts including John Prine, Wynonna & The Big Noise, John Paul White, Sara Watkins, Amanda Shires, Shawn Colvin & Steve Earle, and Bruce Hornsby & The Noisemakers, to name a few. The official AmericanaFest Spotify playlist can be found here.

The $60 AmericanaFest showcase wristband is the best buy on the festival circuit, granting admission into all showcase venues to experience five nights plus a weekend jam packed with music and community events. Wristband wearers are invited to select sanctioned cocktail parties and special events. Wristbands can be purchased at MercyLounge.com, or in Nashville at Grimey's New & Pre-Loved Music and The Groove.

The Festival & Conference Registration is the premier pass to experience what Entertainment Weekly called the "booming genre," offering priority admission to all showcase venues and invitation only events, access to daytime educational panels and parties, and the option to purchase up to two tickets to the critically acclaimed Americana Honors & Awards show at the historic Ryman Auditorium (only Festival & Conference registrants have access to Honors & Awards tickets.) Rates are currently $325 for Americana Music Association members and $425 for non-members, so act now and save.
