Nashville’s Soundland 2011 Lineup Released
The Music City is finally getting its premiere music festival.
Next Big Tennessee, which calls Nashville its home, is introducing its premiere festival, Soundland, after years of hosting music conferences and events. This fall, the festival’s inaugural lineup will include appearances by Foster the People, Yelawolf, The Low Anthem, Ghostland Observatory, Big K.R.I.T. and M. Ward.
From September 21-24, this up-and-comer slate of acts will be performing at many of Nashville’s historic venues, including the War Memorial Auditorium, the Mercy Lounge, Station Inn, Mai and Jack White’s own Third Man Records.
Tickets are available now, with individual shows running around $25 each. Not bad, when you consider such match-ups as M. Ward & Dawes, Foster the People & Cults and Justin Townes Earle with Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit. If you want a more encompassing experience, try the weekend passes for $55, with a second tier ticket level at $65.
Call it a concert sandwich.
If more than 100 performers aren’t enough for you, there will be numerous creative workshops, an arts village, parties and local food favorites on tap. And if that’s not enough for you still, try the inflatable Ninjasaur slide.
Say that yourself. NIN-JA-SAUR SLIDE.
See you in September.
