CMA Music Festival

The CMA Music Festival is steeped in more than three decades of tradition. Since the festival's birth as Fan Fair in 1972, Country Music fans have poured into Nashville, Tennessee, traveling from around the globe to see their favorite artists perform, to get that coveted autograph and to create lifelong memories.

CMA Music Festival/Fan Fair is unique among music festivals. It is a four-day celebration of America’s music that features artist/fan interaction, autograph signings, photo opportunities, more than 45 hours of concerts, family activities and much more.

Each year, hundreds of artists and celebrities appear at CMA Music Festival – from rising stars, to current favorites and the legends. CMA Music Festival is a veritable stomping ground for both those who love making music and those who love hearing it.

Presented annually by the Country Music Association, this world-class event regularly attracts more than 130,000 fans from around the world and raises money for charities designated by the participating artists through CMA’s "Cause For Celebration!" campaign.
