We've got some big updates to share with you. Through the new Americana Music Association Foundation, we’re currently working on something incredibly exciting for our community to be able to come together safely and connect with one another this fall. This will be an engaging experience unlike any other that we can all be a part of over the course of three days, no matter where you may live in the world. Be sure to mark your calendars for Thursday, June 18 to find out more.

We've decided to focus on bringing you this new experience in lieu of holding this year's AMERICANAFEST in wake of the current COVID-19 pandemic. If you've purchased an event pass or applied to showcase, we'll be sending you important info regarding refund policy options next Thursday, June 18.

AMERICANAFEST will be returning to Nashville, TN, on Sept. 21-26, 2021, and we're looking forward to seeing you all in person then!
What about this year's Americana Honors & Awards?

While we won’t be partying at AMERICANAFEST this fall, we are planning on bringing you this year’s Americana Honors & Awards live from Nashville's Ryman Auditorium on Wednesday, September 16. We'll be revealing this year's nominees on Monday, June 15, so don't miss it! 

Ticketing information will be announced at a later date. With that said, we want you to know that we're consistently monitoring the COVID-19 situation, and the health and wellbeing of our community is our utmost concern. We’ll be sure to keep you updated as we approach the ceremony date.
In case you missed it:
  • We've announced the Americana Music Association Foundation (AMAF), a new educational and charitable organization created to help preserve and foster the growth of the art form we know and love. Read more
