AmericanaFest: The Americana Music Festival & Conference

On sale date for passes and tickets TBA.

The annual event brings together fans and music industry professionals alike, offering six days of celebration through seminars, panels and networking opportunities by day and raw, intimate showcases each night. 

The 21st annual AMERICANAFEST® will take place September 21-26, 2021, gathering thousands of artists, fans, and industry professionals from all over the world in Nashville, TN. 2021 promises to once again be the must-attend event for anyone who loves the melting pot of Americana’s influences including roots, folk, country, blues and soul-based music. Each year, AMERICANAFEST® brings together legendary artists, the next generation of rising stars, fans, and industry professionals for six days of music and education.

Our conference portion features numerous panels, seminars, exclusive day time performances, and much more, proudly providing Nashville’s most educational music industry forum. This special event covers the interests and needs of artists, managers, labels, radio stations, publishers, agents, promoters, retailers, legal and business affairs executives, merchandisers and new media professionals – all enthusiastically attended and presented by music industry leaders.
 And FYI, you do not have to be a member of the Americana Music Association® or in the music industry to purchase a conference registration and attend all the events. We encourage all music lovers to be a part of the conference experience. 

If you choose not to be a part of the entire AMERICANAFEST® experience through a conference registration, then our festival wristband is the option for you. For six nights, AMERICANAFEST® will feature 700 live performances at almost 60 of Nashville’s most prominent venues and much, much, more! However, wristbands do not guarantee entry if venue is at capacity. In the event of a line, conference registrants have priority access. If there is a must see band on your list we suggest arriving to the venue early.
