CMA Music Festival 2014 nightly concerts sold out

By Stephen L. Betts. CREATED Feb 17, 2014

Tickets for the 2014 CMA Music Festival nightly concerts at LP Field have officially sold out a record-setting 15 weeks in advance of the event, the Country Music Association announced Monday (Feb. 17). This marks the second year that demand for four-day ticket packages means single-night tickets will not be available for the star-packed concerts at LP Field.

"Tickets to LP Field sold faster than ever before -- a record nine weeks sooner than in 2013 -- and before we announced a single artist performing during the nightly concerts," says CMA Chief Executive Officer Sarah Trahern. "That speaks volumes about the strength of this Festival, the premium experience we provide to the fans, and the popularity of our format."

Although tickets to the nightly concerts at LP Field are sold out, there are numerous other entertainment and music stages, plus special events and activities throughout downtown Nashville to enjoy during CMA Music Festival, which is set for Thursday through Sunday, June 5-8.

Autograph signings, concerts and family events have expanded into the new Music City Center in downtown Nashville. Designated "Fan Fair X," the venue affords easy access to all kinds of entertainment and up-close experiences with dozens of popular artists, with multiple stages with performances, celebrity Q&A sessions and more. Fans can play paparazzi and snap photos of the stars, shop the Fan Fair X Marketplace, and more. FFX tickets are $10 a day or $25 for four days. Children 8 and under are admitted free. Tickets will be available today (Monday, Feb. 17) at 12:00 PM CT through Ticketmaster or the CMA Music Festival Box Office by calling 1-800-CMA-FEST (262-3378) (price includes handling fees). Visit CMAfest.com for details.

Free music will also be available throughout downtown Nashville with non-stop performances. Lineups for the stages, including Chevrolet Riverfront Stage, the Bud Light Stage at Bridgestone Arena Plaza, BMI Tailgate Party and more will be announced soon through CMA's social networks.
