The 50th anniversary of CMA Fest will feature performances at Nissan Stadium by Dierks Bentley, Eric Church, Little Big Town, Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, Carly Pearce and many more. The Country Music Association has announced the first details of the multi-stage celebration, featuring hundreds of artists and taking place in downtown Nashville from June 8-11.
“We are so excited to celebrate the 50th anniversary of CMA Fest this year!” says CMA chief executive officer Sarah Trahern. “A lot has changed since our early days of Fan Fair, but all these years later, the heart of the festival remains that special connection between the fans and the artists. We are truly grateful to everyone who has supported us throughout the years, and we look forward to celebrating this milestone with all of our attendees in June. Stay tuned for much more!”
The weekend’s events will again be filmed for an ABC special this summer. The festival is uniquely programmed with artists donating their time so that a portion of ticket proceeds can be invested in high-quality music education programs across the US through the CMA Foundation.
