CMA Announces New Autograph Procedure For CMA Music Festival
May 1, 2012 at 9:56 AM (PT)
The COUNTRY MUSIC ASSOCIATION has announced new procedures for autograph seekers during 2012 CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL, which will be held JUNE 7th through 10th in NASHVILLE. The changes are being made to “enhance the overall festival experience, improve safety, and make the process for securing a treasured autograph equitable for all festival goers.”
The new system will be a drawing with online sign-ups and notification in advance of the event, enabling attendees to schedule their time during the festival attending concerts and taking part in free events and activities rather than waiting in line in hopes of securing a signature.
“It is going to be a much better experience for the fans,” said CMA CEO STEVE MOORE.”The new system eliminates the need to stand in long lines or camp out overnight on the street to be the first in the FAN FAIR HALL. Fans won’t have to sprint to get to an autograph booth. Now all of our guests have an equal opportunity to get a coveted autograph and still be free to enjoy all the great music and entertainment the Festival has to offer.”
Individual booths will no longer distribute tickets for autograph signings each morning inside the HALL. Instead, fans will enter a random drawing for the opportunity to meet various artists appearing in the FAN FAIR EXHIBIT HALL. Fans may enter between MAY 14th and MAY 28th. All winners will be notified on JUNE 1st via e-mail.
