We're putting it out there, CMA Fest 2023 is going to be the biggest party of the year.
As more than 80,000 fans from all 50 states and a record-Breaking 39 Foreign countries made their way home from seeing more than 260 acts at the biggest CMA Fest yet, plans for the 50th Anniversary of CMA Fest are already in place for June 8th-11th, 2023.
Split across six stages, including two at the momentous Nissan Stadium, the line up is literally RIDICULOUS. Luke Combs, Miranda Lambert, Luke Bryan and Eric Church are all set to appear, alongside Cody Johnson, HARDY, Jon Pardi, Carly Pearce, Lainey Wilson and so, so many more.
Across the Riverfront Stage is a who's who of some of the finest upcoming acts country music has to offer, including Hailey Whitters, Megan Moroney, Ingrid Andress, Lauren Alaina, Priscilla Block and a whole host of others.
On the Dr Pepper Amp Stage, Callista Clark, Avery Anna, Erin Kinsey and Seaforth will be bumping shoulders with Uncle Kracker, Pam Tillis, Shenandoah and Frank Ray.
Meanwhile, on the Chevrolet Vibes Stage, exciting new acts Tyler Booth, Dalton Dover, Kat & Alex, RVSHVD and Holler favourite Georgia Webster are all booked for the weekend's festivities.
Reba McEntire has also been added to the roster of performers, with the ‘Fancy’ hitmaker due to appear for an intimate performance on the CMA Close-Up Stage inside Fan Fair X on Friday. On Saturday, the CMA Close-Up Stage will be taken by Brothers Osborne, who are currently readying an exciting new album.
On Thursday, Dierks Bentley will be in charge of the CMA Close-Up Stage duties, while Wynonna Judd will take over for the final day of CMA Fest 2023 on Sunday.
