An Insider’s Guide to AmericanaFest 2016
Last year I did an article on five artists not to miss at the Americana Music Association Festival. Try as I might, this year with over 200 artists performing over six days at fourteen venues I find it impossible to narrow it down to a mere five. This year is truly an embarrassment of riches. This is not a be-all, end-all list, it’ll be more of a guide about the gems hiding in plain sight. You’ll note that I do not mention the bigger names, you know them already. If you want to see them, go ahead, but work in some discoveries as well. That’s what exciting about AmericanaFest, your fav new artist could be just in the next venue, or the next set where you already are.
At 2:00 PM the 2013 AMA Artist of the Year Dwight Yoakam will be interviewed.
