CMA Music Festival Set A New Attendance

CMA
Fest 2013 Review-Chuck Schultz
 
CMA
Music Festival set a new attendance record in 2013 with daily
attendance topping 80,000 fans, a nearly 13 percent increase over
2012. 71,000 were attendance in 2012. The increase was attributed to
expanding the event into the new Music City Center, which was dubbed
the AT&T U-verse Fan Fair X. The new venue nearly tripled the
space available, creating room for new exhibits, additional stages,
and attractions for families in the Keep the Kids Playing Pavilion.
This
event has a global reputation as the destination for any Country
Music fan,” said Steve Moore, CMA Chief Executive Officer. “The
support we receive from our industry and the dedication of our fans
is unduplicated. Each year we strive to improve and enhance the event
for our attendees and the artists – and this is undeniably our best
CMA Music Festival ever!”
The
live entertainment is what everybody comes to CMA Fest for. 11
different stages, where do you start when you have four days/nights?
You can’t be everywhere at once. You’ve got the LP Field shows at
night which featured performances by; Taylor Swift, Keith Urban,
Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood, Kip Moore, Florida/Georgia Line
among others. During the afternoon if you were lucky you caught a
fireball set by Chris Janson, some great harmonies of High Valley and
the sass of Sarah Darling and Maggie Rose.
If
you are a fan of Country Music you must attend CMA Fest at least
once. 11 stages 200 hours of music with 450 artists, what is not to
love?
