Nashville’s Music City Eats Festival was already a pretty attractive option for Saturday, September 21, and that was before The Best Fest and Jameson got involved to present the signature event: Petty Fest Nashville.
Taking place at the War Memorial Auditorium and hosted by Kings of Leon and The Cabin Down Below Band, the Fest will make its Nashville debut with performances from the hosts, Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell (our May/June cover duo), Patrick Carney of The Black Keys, Jakob Dylan, members of local favorites The Weeks and Jack White protege Ruby Amanfu, with more surprise guests to come.
As the name suggests, Petty Fest pays tribute to the music of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, and the affiliation with Music City Eats means the show will be preceded by Harvest Night in the Walk of Fame Park, which provides the opportunity to sample dishes from the country’s best chefs before getting your fill of music.
As the signature event, tickets for Petty Fest are part of the Music City Eats All-In pass only, available here.
