CMA Fest 2024 Lineup Includes Jelly Roll, Lainey Wilson, Luke Bryan

CMA Fest has announced its lineup for the festival’s 2024 edition, taking place in Nashville June 6-9, and as usual, the roster for the nightly stadium shows is a who’s who of recent country charttoppers and awards contenders, with Jelly Roll and Lainey Wilson foremost among the newer crop of headliners.

The names gracing the Nissan Stadium main stage lineup aren’t entirely that fresh. Luke Bryan, Keith Urban and Thomas Rhett are in the mix to represent faces of the genre that have longer than a decade of stardom under their belts. But the stadium shows also feature a number of acts who’ve only started amassing No. 1s in the course of the last few years, like Cody Johnson, Bailey Zimmerman, Parker McCollum, Jordan Davis, Hardy and Megan Moroney.

The stadium-show roster for 2024 is rounded out by such familiar faces as Kelsea Ballerini, Brothers Osborne, Ashley McBryde, Carly Pearce, Jon Pardi, Lynyrd Skynyrd and the War and Treaty.

The full lineup for five CMA Fest stages was announced Thursday, with three more (the Ascend Nighttime Stage, the CMA Close-Up Stage and the CMA Spotlight Stage) to have their rosters announced at a later date.

The Riverfront Stage is the biggest daytime attraction, before the action shifts solely to Nissan Stadium in the evenings. Moroney and the War and Treaty will be doing repeat performances on that stage, presumably with longer sets than the ones they’ll be doing across the river at Nissan at later hours. Among the dozens of other acts booked for the Riverfront are Ingrid Andress, Priscilla Block, Gavin DeGraw, Jackson Dean, Warren Zeiders, Breland, Anne Wilson, Colbie Caillat, Eli Young Band, Niko Moon, Brian Kelley and Lauren Alaina.

The Dr. Pepper Amp Stage will spotlight artists including Mickey Guyton, Lorrie Morgan, Brittney Spencer, Charlie Worsham, Abby Anderson, Ty Herndon and Tenille Arts.

The Chevrolet Vibes Stage attractions include Kassi Ashton, Blanco Brown, Lanco, Chrissy Metz, Raelyn, Tigerlily Gold, Darry Worley, T. Graham Brown, Jamie O’Neal and Mark Wills.

The Hard Rock Stage and the Good Molecules Reverb Stage have an emphasis on artists that are newer and/or on the fringes of making a chart impact, with highlights including Reyna Roberts, Fancy Hagood, Annie Bosko, Kelsey Waldon and Walker County.

A variety of tickets and passes are on sale now at, including a four-night stadium pass — which also includes access to the Riverfront Stage and most other attractions — and single-night tickets. Tickets for the Stage at Ascend, the lineup of which has yet to be announced, are sold separately. Fan Fair X tickets provide access to almost everything except the nightly stadium shows, for those few who might prefer to retire to their hotel rooms early. A Riverside Retreat ticket provides access to a more comfortable VIP area at that daytime stage.

The four-night stadium passes, which generally sell out more quickly every year, start at $238, including fees.
