The CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL, which takes place JUNE 10th-13th in DOWNTOWN NASHVILLE, will be more interactive this year thanks to some new online features. Fans can have more control over their experience with the "Customize Your Schedule" feature on www.CMAfest.com. The feature was built by AUSTIN-based SEED LABS and allows users to access the entire line-up of artists performing at the Festival, arranged alphabetically by day or by venue.
Each user may create their own customized schedule of activities by simply clicking on the name of an artist. When finished assembling their personalized schedule, fans can print their schedule to carry with them. Fans can create an account to save their custom schedule, or they can login with FACEBOOK CONNECT, which allows them to share their schedule on with their FACEBOOK friends.
A free CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL IPHONE application, developed by AUSTIN-based DOSTUFF MEDIA, is also now available at the iTUNES store. The application provides a mobile version of the custom schedule feature and a "You are Here" map feature using the iPHONE's GPS capability to give fans the exact location of where they are within the CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL.
Also available on iTUNES is a CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL digital sampler. The sampler includes complimentary song downloads from STEVE AZAR, DAVID BALL, FRANKIE BALLARD, JOHN COWAN, RADNEY FOSTER, RANDY HOUSER, MATT KENNON, SAMMY KERSHAW, RANDY MONTANA and CHRIS YOUNG. Online Download codes for the digital sampler will be distributed via download cards at the festival, the CMA EXCLUSIVE email newsletter and CMA MOB mobile community. Fans can sign up for CMA EXCLUSIVE e-mails and CMA MOB text alerts at www.CMAfest.com. Additional playlists are expected to be released in the coming weeks.
