The Nashional is a unique two-day event that highlights the inclusive, diverse, and genre-blurring landscape of music today. Nashville’s Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park will be home to this inaugural event and will feature an experiential environment for fans to enjoy. Hunt, whose own eclectic style owes its roots to country music with influences in pop, folk and R&B, was inspired to create this festival while out on his “15 In a 30” national tour this past summer.

“The sense of community in Nashville helps give it the character and personality that makes me proud to be a part of it,” says Hunt. “I wanted to create an experience at The Nashional that celebrates music, community, and everything they mean to each other and this city.”

General admission tickets start at $150.00 (plus fees) for a two-day pass or $85.00 (plus fees) for a single day. Single day or 2-day VIP Passes will also be available including access to VIP viewing areas and a VIP Party with food vendors, comfortable lounge furniture, air-conditioned restrooms, private bars, and more.

The specially priced General Admission tickets & VIP tickets will be available in limited quantities starting with the Sam Hunt fan pre-sale on Monday, Feb. 5th at 10 am. When these limited quantities sell out prices for general admission tickets will go up without notice so join the Sam Hunt email list and buy early to lock in the lowest price. Tickets go on sale to the public Feb 9th.
