Daytime Stages: One of the coolest places to hear the hottest music during the day is the Daytime Stages. The concert stages in Downtown Nashville on the scenic Cumberland River bank offer a rich assortment of artists from both major and independent labels, representing a broad range of musical interests and styles from today’s hit-makers to alternative Country, bluegrass and legends. Bring a blanket, stake your spot on the lawn and enjoy the best Country Music from the most artists you’ll ever see in one place!
Fan Fair (Exhibit Hall): The unique relationship between Country Music artists and their fans is celebrated annually at the CMA Music Festival, and there’s no better testament to that bond than the Fan Fair. Located at the Nashville Convention Center, the Wrangler® Fan Fair allows fans to meet their favourite stars, as well as acts new on the scene and soon to be favourites! The Wrangler® Fan Fair is also home to the Acoustic Corner performance hall where artists perform intimate, stripped-down sets sure to please the crowd!
