The 2016 edition of the Americana Music Festival and Conference will be happening in Nashville from September 20-25, 2016.

It'll mark the 17th edition of the conference/festival, and will once again be bringing together fans and music industry professionals for 6 days of seminars, panels, networking opportunities and showcases.

We will definitely be back at Americana this year with another Canadian Blast showcase opportunity (more details coming soon) but we do recommend applying directly to the Festival if you're interested in that opportunity.

The AmericanaFest showcase submissions are now open, but apply soon because they'll be closing on Thursday, March 24, 2016. 

There are 2 ways to submit:

  • Submissions are open to anyone via Americana's digital platform for a small fee of $25. You can digitally submit here.
  • Americana Music Association Artist/Band Members can submit for free by printing the submission application which can be found here and mailing it to the Americana office at PO Box 628, Franklin, TN 37065. (Please note: The Americana member submitting must be a member of the band and not a representative.)

All applicants will be notified by Friday, July 1, 2016 as to whether or not they have been selected for this year’s event.

Selected artists will showcase Tuesday, September 20th through Saturday, September 25th at many premiere venues in Nashville, TN.
