The closer time gets to the madness of CMA Music Festival, the more artists are added to the bill with Country Music Association announcing more than 100 additional acts to perform at the four-day event. One of the beloved areas of CMA Fest lies in Xfinity Fan Fair X, where supporters can get up-and-close with some of their favorite stars in the genre. From intimate performances to career chats, a number of artists make their way into the Music City Center-based location to experience country music on a deeper level.
“What makes CMA Fest unique from other music festivals are our one-of-a-kind fan experiences at Xfinity Fan Fair X,” said CMA Chief Marketing Officer Damon Whiteside. “For decades, Country Music fans have flocked to Nashville to attend the festival to get up close and personal with their favorite artists. We’re proud to continue that tradition year after year.”
Radio Disney Country always invites some of the rising stars of country to come in for brief appearances at Fan Fair X, and this year is no different. Artists scheduled to play live include Jimmie Allen, Abby Anderson, Cam, Jordan Davis, Devin Dawson, Russell Dickerson, Lindsay Ell, Trent Harmon, Walker Hayes, Jillian Jacqueline, LANCO, Maddie & Tae, Tegan Marie, Cassadee Pope, RaeLynn and Kalie Shorr, among others. Two more familiar faces were added to the night shows at Nissan Stadium, with Jake Owen scheduled for Friday night and Cole Swindell hitting the stage on Sunday. Fans can continue to stay tuned in for even more guests to drop by during the evening festivities. The 2018 CMA Music Festival will take place in downtown Nashville from June 7-10. Visitors can attend day shows at various venues around the city for free, with the nightly stadium shows open to ticketed festivalgoers.
