Americana Announces First Round Of AmericanaFest Performers

The Americana Music Association has announced the first 103 of more than 230 artists slated to perform at the 17th Annual “AMERICANAFEST: The Americana Music Festival & Conference”, which runs from September 12th-17th in Nashville,Tennessee.

The six-day festival will fill the city with legends, newcomers, award winners, and buzz bands, showcasing the breadth of Americana’s influence. With over 230 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 first round of performers can be found below).

Tying into this announcement, the Americana Music Association has put evening showcase wristbands on sale to the public at the wallet-friendly price of $75.

Available on their website and in Nashville at Grimey’s New & Preloved Music, showcase wristbands allow admission into all showcase venues and select sanctioned parties and events. Conference registrations (currently $299 for members/$399 for non-members) offer priority admission into all showcase venues, sanctioned parties and events, daytime educational panels, and can be purchased here. 

The event will once again bring together fans and music industry professionals alike, offering six days of celebration through seminars, panels and networking opportunities by day and raw artist showcases by night.

The Americana Honors & Awards Show is the hallmark event of the week’s festivities and will take place at the historic Ryman Auditorium on September 13th. For the 2017 Americana Honors & Awards Spotify Playlist, click here.
