CMA Music Festival social media will offer clues to concert performers

By Stephen L. Betts. CREATED Feb 28, 2014

Want to be among the first to find out which artists will be performing during this year's CMA Music Festival? Starting Monday (March 3) and every weekday until March 18, as part of its #CMAFestGuess campaign, organizers will post clues on the CMA's social media platforms allowing fans to speculate and anticipate who will be performing at the nightly concerts at Nashville's LP Field. A full announcement of the LP Field lineup will follow on Wednesday, March 19.

A mock movie trailer announcing the campaign will be released on CMA's social pages Sunday during the Oscars telecast, traditionally one of the most active nights with regard to social engagement. Followers can use #CMAFestGuess to track the virtual clues which will be revealed each weekday via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Subscribers to CMA Exclusive, CMA's fan newsletter, will be among the first to see the list of performers. With more than two million followers across CMA's social media platforms, country fans are proving that they are digitally engaged and Internet savvy. The 2013 CMA Awards, which aired Nov. 6 on ABC, was the most tweeted-about television event of that week

The 2014 CMA Music Festival will be held Thursday through Sunday, June 5-8, in downtown Nashville. Tickets to the nightly concerts at LP Field are sold out, but there are numerous other entertainment and music stages, special events, and activities taking place throughout downtown Nashville during the four-day festival.
