After a year off due to the pandemic, the Americana Music Association announced this week that its signature festival, AmericanaFest, will take place this fall in Nashville. The festival is set for Sept. 22-25 and will feature a conference in addition to the music performances.

“We’re beyond elated to once again be able to celebrate with our incredible community in Music City,” said Jed Hilly, executive director of the Americana Music Association, in a statement. “As we prioritize having a safe and positive event for everyone involved, we’re looking forward to bringing back exciting music discovery, industry insight and plenty of networking opportunities that our attendees have come to enjoy over the last two decades.”

AmericanaFest will showcase “hundreds of artists at various venues,” according to the press release. The conference itself will be held at The Westin Nashville along with The Americana Music Association’s Americana Honors & Awards ceremony. The artist lineup is yet to be released, and interested musicians can apply on the festivals website. Limited tickets are available now.
