NASHVILLE – Visitors attending Nashville’s signature New Year’s Eve event, “Bash on Broadway,” will have a variety of safe transportation options to and from their homes or hotels, the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corporation (NCVB) announced today. Downtown shuttle services will be available from LP Field and 1st Avenue, while taxi stands and the Sober ride program will also be options.

The fourth annual New Year’s Eve “Bash on Broadway” will feature Grammy®-winning piano rock group The Fray, Nashville-based Sixpence None the Richer, ACM-nominated country duo Love and Theft and Nashville newcomers Striking Matches. The free event kicks off with a Family Hour beginning at 6:45 p.m. with music from internet sensations and “Nashville” stars Lennon and Maisy Stella. The Family Hour presented by Twice Daily will offer a raising of the Music Note, fireworks and discounted non-alcoholic beverages from 7 to 8 p.m.
The entertainment leads up to the official countdown to the New Year as a new 15-foot-tall red music note, drops slowly from a 115-foot structure.
