CMA Fest 2016 Announces Friday Night Lineup
CMA Music Festival’s Friday night lineup was announced on Wednesday (March 16), and the star power at this year’s fest continues to impress.
The previously-announced Thursday night lineup at the Nissan Stadium stage will include performances by Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Miranda Lambert and Rascal Flatts. Fans first learned the news through the 2016 CMA Music Festival app. The lineup for a different nightly concert at Nissan Stadium will be announced every Wednesday in March.
“The fans are the heart of CMA Music Festival,” CMA Chief Executive Officer Sarah Trahern explains in a press release. “Nissan Stadium sells out every year before we announce who will be performing, and it is fitting that those fans who support this event so loyally should be the first to see this outstanding lineup.”
The 2016 CMA Music Festival runs Thursday through Sunday, June 9-12 in downtown Nashville. While the festival boasts numerous free stages and unique fan experiences, the most anticipated events are the nightly concerts at Nissan Stadium.
All of the stadium events at CMA Festival 2016 are sold out, but fans can still purchase Fan Fair X tickets, which include entrance into free concerts, unique fan experiences and a general admission ticket to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum that is good for use any day in 2016.
Proceeds from CMA Music Festival ticket sales will benefit music education. And if you can’t make the trip to Music City, don’t worry; the Taste of Country Music Festival also takes in June at Hunter Mountain in New York, followed by Country Jam in Colorado and WE Fest in Minnesota.
