2022 PASSES ON SALE SOON

“The coolest music scene today.” – The New York Times

The annual event brings together fans and music industry professionals alike, offering six days of celebration through seminars, panels and networking opportunities by day and raw, intimate showcases each night.

Our 22nd annual AMERICANAFEST will take place September 13-18, 2022, gathering thousands of artists, fans, and industry professionals from all over the world in Nashville, TN. 2022 promises to once again be the must-attend event for anyone who loves the melting pot of Americana's influences including roots, folk, country, blues and soul-based music. Each year, AMERICANAFEST brings together legendary artists, the next generation of rising stars, fans, and industry professionals for multiple days of music and education.

Our conference portion features numerous panels, seminars, exclusive day time performances, and much more, proudly providing Nashville's most educational music industry forum. This special event covers the interests and needs of artists, managers, labels, radio stations, publishers, agents, promoters, retailers, legal and business affairs executives, merchandisers and new media professionals – all enthusiastically attended and presented by music industry leaders.
 And FYI, you do not have to be a member of the Americana Music Association or in the music industry to purchase a Conference + Festival Pass and attend all the events. We encourage all music lovers to be a part of the conference experience.

If you choose not to be a part of the entire AMERICANAFEST experience through a Conference + Festival Pass, then our Festival Pass is the option for you. For six nights, AMERICANAFEST will feature hundreds of live performances at Nashville's most prominent venues and much, much, more! However, passes do not guarantee entry if venue is at capacity. If there is a must-see band on your list we suggest arriving to the venue early.
