CMA Fest hosts numerous stages filled with throwback tunes, up and coming acts, today’s biggest stars and much more. Your attendance allows CMA to give back! A portion of proceeds from CMA Fest will support the CMA Foundation and their mission to shape the next generation through high quality music education. We believe every child deserves the opportunity to participate in music.

Access to all daytime outdoor stages begins approximately one hour before the first set of each day. Gates may be closed throughout the day as crowds reach capacity, but more music is always around the corner at CMA Fest daytime stages!
