The Avett Brothers To Headline Nashville’s Riverfront Park Sept. 20 As Part Of The Americana Music Association’s 15th Annual Festival & Conference

Americana Music FestivalThe Americana Music Association expands its festival and conference in its 15th year by announcing its most ambitious and eclectic lineup to date. Anchored by its 13th Annual Honors & Awards show on Wed. Sept. 17 at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium, the association also adds three-time Americana Group of the Year, The Avett Brothers, to a headlining slot at Riverfront Park on Saturday Sept. 20.

Throughout the festival and conference — highlighted by Travel + Leisure as a fine-tuned music destination in its June print issue — a total of 160 artists perform in 11 venues including 3rd & Lindsley, The Basement, City Winery, High Watt, Cannery, Mercy Lounge, The Rutledge, Station Inn, Music City Roots, Downtown Presbyterian Church and Musicians Corner.

Admission to The Avett Brothers’ Riverfront show, co-presented by WRLT Lightning 100, will be included in Americana’s Music Festival & Conference registrations and tickets for the general public will go on sale Friday, June 27 at 10AM via www.ticketfly.com.

The growth of Americana as a genre -curated and cultivated by the Americana Music Association – is evidenced by recent partnerships with cultural epicenter Lincoln Center for “Americana NYC” on August 6-10 and a new GRAMMY category created for the Americana Roots Field announced in early June: “Best American Roots Performance.” This category is the genre’s third and the only new category created by the Academy this year.
