– AMERICANAFEST will be back in the flesh.
The annual event of the Americana Music Association is returning Sept. 22-25 in Nashville. Passes are now on sale for the events, including panels and concerts.
Last year's music festival and conference event was canceled due to Covid-19.
AMERICANAFEST will take place with three days of music business panels at The Westin Nashville on Wednesday - Friday; three nights of music showcases Thursday - Saturday; and parties on Wednesday evening.
The Americana Honors & Awards ceremony will be held Sept. 22 at the Ryman Auditorium. Tickets for the show will be on sale at a later date.
"We're beyond elated to once again be able to celebrate with our incredible community in Music City," said Jed Hilly, executive director of the Americana Music Association. "As we prioritize having a safe and positive event for everyone involved, we're looking forward to bringing back exciting music discovery, industry insight and plenty of networking opportunities that our attendees have come to enjoy over the last two decades."
For attendees wanting access to panels, showcases and all special events, the Conference + Festival Pass is $349 ($249 for Americana Music Association members). For concerts and select special events, the Festival Pass is $175. These pass rates expire after June 28.
Artists interested in showcasing at this year's festival can find out more information on how to apply here now through April 30. The first programming announcement for AMERICANAFEST 2021 will be revealed in late summer.
