Next Big Nashville's SoundLand Announces Initial Lineup, Feat. M. Ward, Dawes, Justin Townes Earle, Ghostland Observatory and More



For those of you scratching your head and saying, "What's SoundLand?", catch up. Last month, founder Jason Moon Wilkins and the rest of the folks at Next Big Nashville decided to change their name, and the revamped fest is slated to go down Sept. 21-24 at venues including Mercy Lounge, Cannery Ballroom, Public Square Park, Third Man Records, 12th & Porter, MAI, The Basement, The Station Inn and more.

With the name change came a heightened focus on pulling in national acts, and given the artists that have already been announced at the SoundLand site, I'd say they're off to a good start. Among the headlining performers are local, regional and national acts including M. Ward, Ghostland Observatory, Dawes, Justin Townes Earle, Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, JEFF the Brotherhood, PUJOL, Caitlin Rose, Bonobo, Paper Route, Jessica Lea Mayfield and Chancellor Warhol. According to the site, "over 100 more" bands will be announced soon. Advance tickets are now available for $55, and I recommend following SoundLand at those wacky social media platforms we all know and love — Tweetsville and Bookface, for starters.
