CMA Music Fest stadium shows sell out in record time

Monday, February 17, 2014 – Tickets for the Nightly Concerts at LP Field are sold out a record-setting 15 weeks in advance of the 2014 CMA Music Festival, the CMA announced Monday.

For the second year, demand for four-day ticket packages means that single night tickets will not be available for LP Field concerts, CMA announced today.

"Tickets to LP Field sold faster than ever before - a record nine weeks sooner than in 2013 - and before we announced a single artist performing during the Nightly Concerts," said CMA Chief Executive Officer Sarah Trahern. "I think that speaks volumes about the strength of this festival, the premium experience we provide to the fans, and the popularity of our format."

The festival will be Thursday through Sunday, June 5-8.

Four-day passes for parking at LP Field during CMA Music Festival are still available for $60 through Ticketmaster or the CMA Music Festival Box Office by calling 1-800-CMA-FEST (262-3378) (price includes handling fees). Four-day parking passes for RVs cost $120 and are available through 1-800-CMA-FEST.

"With the expansion of our autograph signings, concerts, and family events into the Music City Center - which we call Fan Fair X - local and regional residents have affordable, easy access to great entertainment with hundreds of our most popular artists," said Trahern.
