It’s time to start planning your trip to CMA Fest 2020.

The annual event will take place in Nashville Thursday through Sunday, June 4-7, 2020 and four-day passes are going on sale this Friday, August 2.

Beginning at 10am CT, fans will have access to purchase four-day passes for CMA Fest 2020 by visiting CMAFest.com or by calling the CMA box office at 1-800-CMA-FEST. Passes include admission to each of Nissan Stadium’s four nightly shows, four-day admission to Xfinity Fan Fair X, meet-and-greet opportunities inside Xfinity Fan Fair X and free access to daytime and nighttime shuttles.

CMA Fest 2019 featured four days of sold-out shows with over 300 artists performing on 11 official festival stages. Fans will be able to re-live the magic of CMA Fest 2019 when ABC airs its annual CMA Fest special. Hosted by Thomas Rhett and Kelsea Ballerini with special guest host Bobby Bones, CMA Fest airs Sunday, Aug. 4 at 8/7c on ABC.

Each year, hundreds of artists performing at CMA Fest donate their time and talent so a portion of ticket proceeds can directly help enrich and sustain music education programs across the country through CMA’s nonprofit arm, the CMA Foundation.
