2018 CMA Fest Nashville

Experience 2018’s Top Country Music Fest

Summer is coming…and for country music lovers, this time of year brings Nashville’s biggest annual music event: CMA Fest 2018! Taking place June 7-10 and hosted by the Country Music Association, CMA Fest spans multiple locations in downtown Nashville, making hotels nearby fill up quickly.

With over 400 artist performances and up to 30 hours of autograph and “meet-and-greet” sessions, you’ll not only want to get your ticket before they sell out, but you’ll also want to book your room today!

2018 Lineup
While the official lineup for 2018 has yet to be released, you can be sure that many of last year’s performers will make a repeat appearance. Some of the headliners from CMA Fest 2017 included country music superstars: Trace Adkins, John Anderson, Kelsea Ballerini, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Brett Eldredge, Florida Georgia Line, Sam Hunt, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Tracy Lawrence, Little Big Town, Maren Morris, Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts, Kenny Rogers, Darius Rucker, Blake Shelton, Chris Stapleton, Cole Swindell, Thomas Rhett, Keith Urban, and Chris Young.

These performers represent only a fraction of the total artists included in the festival, so be sure to watch ABC’s “Good Morning America” in mid-March, where the nightly concert lineup has been exclusively announced in the past.

Get Your Tickets
Ticketmaster.com is the only place you can get official CMA Fest tickets. A 4-day CMA Fest pass grants access to Fan Fair X inside Music City Center during the day and Nissan Stadium nightly all-star concerts. Although all the outdoor daytime stages are free to the public, being a pass holder will get you early access and thus, better seats.

Fan Fair X
1-day and 4-day Fan Fair X tickets are also on sale now through Ticketmaster. The Ultimate Country Music Fan Experience can only be found here at the Music City Center. Inside you’ll find 3 live music stages, artist “meet and greets”, celebrity Q&A sessions, shopping, games, crafts, and so much more. Don’t worry about having to get a babysitter because children under 8 years of age get in for free!

Starting May 30th, register for CMA Fest Fan access and enter the Ultimate Fan Experiences drawing for a chance to win a “meet and greet” with select artists. You’ll find out by email or text if you are a winner on June 2nd. Some of the “meet and greets” do not require winning a drawing, just join the line inside Fan Fair X when the doors open at 9:30am each day for your chance to get up close and personal with your favorite country music star.
