Preps Begin For Nashville NYE Celebration

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Crews have begun prepping for Nashville's big New Year's Eve celebration at Bicentennial Mall State Park, Jack Daniel's Music City Midnight.

Several changes have been made to the event; so here's what you need to know before you go.


The concert, fireworks and music note drop will be located at Bicentennial Mall State Park.

The new spot was selected -- moving the celebration from Broadway -- to give people more room, and for public safety reasons.

It's set to open at 4 p.m. and close just after the music not drop at 12:35 a.m.

Several food and drink vendors will be set up inside Bicentennial Mall, in addition to the usual vendors inside the Nashville Farmer's Market. All of them are also set to open at 4 p.m.

Non-alcoholic drinks, Coca-Cola and Dr Pepper products will be available for purchase throughout the event site.

Yet, for those of age, Jack Daniel's, Fetzer and Bonterra wines, Korbel, Bud Light, and Budweiser will also have drinks for sale.

A Jack Daniel’s bar will be located on 6th Avenue and Seventh Avenue. Bud Light will have a bar with TVs and limited supply of party hats for guests on 6th Avenue.


The entire perimeter of the site will be gated with 12 entry points, and you should expect security checks as you enter.

You can't bring in blankets or lawn chairs to the event because the Nashville Convention and Visitors Corp. is trying to make room for each of the 100,000 people expected to attend.

There will be six bands performing on the main stage including the headliner, Keith Urban.

Other performers are:

Charlie Worsham

Moon Taxi

A Thousand Horses



For those hopping back and forth from Broadway or the downtown area to the event, there will be free shuttles available.

The buses will run a continuous loop from around the Renaissance Hotel on Commerce Street to James Robertson to drop people off or take them back.

The Davidson County Sheriff’s Office will offer "Sober Ride" service to anyone needing a free ride home from the event. Go to the Sober Ride tent located at Fourth Avenue North and Harrison Street from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.

Pick-up and drop-off for ride sharing services will be on 5th Avenue between Harrison and Jefferson Street.

Uber will also be operating on Junior Gilliam Way between 5th and 6th Avenue.

Uber is the event’s exclusive ride-share promotional partner. Use code NASHNYE to get your first ride free (up to $20)!
