SoundLand takes place at various venues across Nashville Sept. 21-24 featuring over 100 national and regional acts, VIP parties and creative workshops.
An announcement about the event says that the new name represents an “evolution of the festival and an introduction of all new experiences.” Rather than a traditional conference with panels, this year SoundLand will offer special “field trips” and artist-led workshops. The new and improved festival will also include outdoor stages, local food trucks, an arts village and interactive fun such as a giant inflatable ninjasaur slide. (According to Urban Dictionary, a ninjasaur combines a ninja and a dinosaur.)
“I’m very proud of what we have accomplished over the last several years with Next BIG Nashville but, looking forward, we saw an opportunity to push the idea of the festival ever further,” said Jason Moon Wilkins, co-founder of Next Big Nashville.
“And that new vision deserved a new name. This new event now gives us an opportunity to embrace the entire creative community – from arts to film to food and more.”
Additional acts on the lineup includes Foster The People, Dawes, Cults, The Low Anthem, Jeff The Brotherhood, Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit, Bonobo, Ben Sollee, Carl Broemel, Yelawolf, Jessica Lea Mayfield and Those Darlins.
A limited quantity of 4-day wristbands are on sale now for $55. Once those sell out, the price will increase to $65. Single-show tickets are also available.
