The 2018 AmericanaFest Releases Its Stacked Lineup


The 2018 AmericanaFest has announced it’s initial lineup and it is stacked, to say the least. The festival has been known to bring as many as 250 artists onstage to a variety of Nashville’s most historic stages including (but not limited to) Mercy Lounge, City Winery, and Bluebird Cafe.

The festival is scheduled to run Sept. 11-16 and day passes start at $75. But if you really love the lineup, you can go all in with a $999 Gold package including:

  • • 1 conference registration (see below for details)
  • • 1 Honors & Awards ticket within the first three center rows at The Ryman Auditorium
  • • First dibs on RSVP lists during the festival and conference
  • • A visit to Honors & Awards show rehearsals at The Ryman
  • • A $40 voucher to the AMERICANAFEST® merchandise table
  • • Honors & Awards Hatch Show Print signed by at least one showcasing artist
  • • Expedited pick-up at the registration desk on Tuesday, Sept. 11

Yeah, I may have to stay with the wristband.

And just look at this lineup! So far, it is a veritable who’s who of the Americana world.
