84 New Artists Added to Already-Stacked AmericanaFest Lineup

americanafest-2017

The Americana Music Association has just announced an additional 84 names of showcasing artists who will be gracing stages all around Nashville September 12th-17th for the 2017 AmericanaFest, adding to an already-stacked poster of names now swelling to 187 participants, and expected to reach close to 300 eventually. This is already more artists than were announced last year at this time, and speaks to the continued influx of interest in the event due to the rising stars in the independent roots industry.

Once again it appears Texas music will be well-represented in this year’s lineup, with Dalton Domino, Flatland Cavalry, Cody Canada and the Departed, Kaitlin Butts, and others added to a strong contingent of Texas representation. East Nashville now also has some of its strongest rising names in the ranks as well with J.P. Harris and Joshua Hedley—who was recently signed to Third Man Records—making the 2nd round of announcements.

This is on top of the headline-level acts just added to the lineup like Drive-By Truckers, Lori McKenna, The Mavericks, North Mississippi All Stars, and many more.

The centerpiece of AmericanaFest will be the Americana Music Awards, which will happen Wednesday, September 13th at the Ryman Auditorium. The nominees for the awards were announced on May 9th. The reclusive Van Morrison will also be a part of the festivities, accepting a Lifetime Achievement Award, as well as performing at Nashville’s Ascend Amphitheater.

Festival Wristbands start at $75 and can be PURCHASED HERE.
