Americana Music Festival Adds Riverfront Show Starring The Avett Brothers

            NASHVILLE - The Americana Music Association is expanding its Americana Music Festival & Conference Showcase in its 15th year by announcing its most ambitious and eclectic lineup to date.
            Anchored by its 13th annual Honors & Awards show on Wednesday, Sept. 17 at Nashville's historic Ryman Auditorium, the Association is also adding three-time Americana Group of the Year winners, The Avett Brothers, to a headlining slot at Riverfront Park on Saturday, Sept. 20. Admission to the Riverfront show will be included in Americana Festival & Conference registrations for the Sept. 17-21 event.

            Individual tickets for The Avett Brothers Riverfront show will go on sale to the general public for $52.50 on Friday, June 27 at 10 a.m. via The Avett Brothers Fan Club members will have a special pre-sale opportunity starting on Tuesday, June 24. All new fan club members must sign up at before Monday, June 23 in order to be eligible.

            Throughout the festival and conference - highlighted by Travel + Leisure as a fine-tuned music destination in its June print issue - a total of 160 artists will perform in 11 venues including 3rd & Lindsley, The Basement, City Winery, High Watt, Cannery, Mercy Lounge, The Rutledge, Station Inn, Music City Roots, Downtown Presbyterian Church and Musicians Corner.
