Initial Lineup and Information for Next Big Nashville 2009



Last week was a mixture of celebration and heartache for local rock musicians as acceptance and rejection emails for this year's NBN festival were sent to bands across Middle Tennessee. While festival organizers are still nailing down the final lineup they have released a preliminary list of who we can expect to see at this year's best weekend of local music. Tickets for individual nights as well as wristbands and VIP badges are currently on sale at Wristbands and badges will get you into exclusive NBN afterparties as well as delivering special NBN-only discounts at select retail outlets, bars, coffeehouses and restaurants throughout the NBN week. Wristbands are $40 and VIP badges are $100.

The festival will go down Oct. 7-11 at venues such as Exit/In, 12th & Porter, Cannery Ballroom, The End, The Rutledge, Mercy Lounge, The Basement, The 5 Spot, Bluebird Cafe, The Belcourt and more. We've heard some exciting rumors of national acts slated to be added to the bill and there is still plenty of NBN info to announce in the days to come. For now, check out the initial lineup after the jump.
