Hey if you haven’t already heard, the 2019 NFL Draft is coming Music City USA. Nashville Tennessee will be the host city for the event April 25th -27th and it’s shaping up to be one heck of a party!
Downtown Nashville’s Lower Broadway and the area outside Nissan Stadium will host free, public activities for Nashville’s first ever NFL Draft. The 2019 NFL Draft is expected to be the largest event ever held in Nashville or the State of Tennessee given the anticipated attendance over three days.
The event features The NFL Draft Experience presented by Oikos® Triple Zero, a free admission, three-day football festival held outside Nissan Stadium. This represents the largest festival footprint ever created by the NFL. Fans can participate in interactive exhibits, immersive games, virtual reality experiences, free player autograph sessions and more.
Of course, you can’ do Nashville without music – lots-and-lots of music! For starters, GRAMMY-winning gospel music great CeCe Winans will sing the National Anthem to help open NFL Draft activities on Thursday, April 25.
On Friday, April 26 GRAMMY-winner Tim McGraw will headline free outdoor concert for the NFL Draft. Multi-Platinum singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley will also headline a free outdoor concert Saturday, April 27 as part of the 2019 NFL Draft and the St. Jude Rock ‘n’ Roll Nashville® Marathon & ½ Marathon which also takes place on Saturday. Both artists will appear at the Draft Main Stage in downtown Nashville.
More than 20 other Nashville-based acts representing diverse genres of music will perform during the three days of activities on the Draft Main Stage and at the NFL Draft outside Nissan Stadium. No other NFL Draft has integrated free live music to the degree that will be included in the 2019 Nashville Draft.
If you plan to attend, you can count on big crowds. Hotels are selling out quickly. Out-of-towners may want to look on the outskirts of town or in the burbs.
