CMA Music Fest Sets New Attendance Record
June 11, 2012 at 2:57 PM (PT)
The CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL, held last week in NASHVILLE, from THURSDAY, JUNE 7th thru SUNDAY, JUNE 10th, set a new attendance record for the festival with a total of 71,000 fans. That's a 9.2 percent increase over the 2011 total of 65,000, and a sell out for the 3rd consecutive year at LP FIELD.
The 2013 dates for the festival have already been announced for THURSDAY, JUNE 6th thru SUNDAY, JUNE 9th.
This year's increase was attributed to expanded seating at LP FIELD for the nightly concerts and milder than normal temperatures.
“Third time’s the charm and to achieve a sell out for a third straight year and increase attendance says a lot about the strength of this event, the dedication of our fans, the support of our industry and local community, and the popularity of our music and artists,” CMA CEO STEVE MOORE said.
