While tickets to the nightly concerts at LP Field are sold out, there are many other music stages, special events and country music activities taking place throughout the city during the festival. This includes the return of Fan Fair X, where fans can catch performances, autograph signings and question-and-answer sessions with country stars in the Music City Center. Tickets for Fan Fair X are $10 per day or $25 for four days, and children under 8 are free.
The nightly stadium concerts will once again be filmed for a national television special on ABC called CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock. This is the 11th consecutive year the event has been filmed for TV. The special will debut next fall.
