The 12th Annual Americana Music Festival and Conference presented by Nissan will celebrate the genre’s ever-growing recognition and acclaim October 12 -15, 2011 in Nashville, TN. In an explosion of talent, iconic artists will take the stage alongside the scene’s hippest up-and-comers for four days and nights of praiseworthy performances and surprise guest appearances.
Confirmed to attend “Americanafest” so far include Gregg Allman, Robert Plant and the Band of Joy, Justin Townes Earle, the Jayhawks, North Mississippi Allstars, Foster and Lloyd, and The Civil Wars and hundreds of key members of the music community.
The genre’s far-reaching embrace will be on display as 100-plus acts rock five of Nashville’s coolest venues during the Festival’s nighttime showcases. This is where those-in-the-know catch genre stalwarts, as well as talented newcomers on track to becoming tomorrow’s headline makers. The Americana scene has spawned some of today’s hottest acts, spurring a recent Spin magazine cover story.
July 31 is the final day to register for the Festival and Conference under the current early bird rate, with priority Honors and Awards show seating going to those who register before the August 1st rate increase.
