CMA Music Festival Sets Attendance Record

The CMA Music Festival set a new attendance record last week with more than 71,000 fans. The attendance figures include four-day ticket packages, promotional and single night tickets, as well as attendance in non-ticketed free areas and events. The figures are 9.2 percent higher than last year’s attendance of 65,000. The increase was attributed to expanded seating at LP Field for the nightly concerts and mild temperatures that encouraged visitors to come downtown. In all, more than 450 artists performed more than 200 hours of concerts.
