Nashville's 2015 New Year's Eve Fun Facts
- Seven Bands
The most ever for Nashville’s New Year’s Eve concert. The globally-acclaimed Kings Of Leon headlined, joined by hot new CMA winner Chris Stapleton, CMA-nominated Kelsea Ballerini, Sugar & The Hi-Lows, The Whigs, Wild Cub, and LANco.
- Two Stages.
The new Music City stage was located on Broadway in between Fifth Avenue and Sixth Avenue. It faced the Jack Daniel’s Stage, which continued to serve as the main stage at First and Broadway.
- Tallest Music Note Drop®
Nashville's 'Bash on Broadway' event is the ONLY place you can ring in to the New Year with the drop of a 15-foot-tall red music note covered in more than 150 feet of LED lights from a 145-foot structure. The Music Note Drop® triggers a fireworks display and major confetti cannons as it reaches the midnight mark.
- Lots of Bulbs.
The Music Note includes 425 light bulbs. It is designed and constructed by MadeFirst, a design and fabrication company located in Inglewood.
- It's a family affair.
Music City offers New Year’s Eve fun for the whole family. Nashville’s youngest revelers can celebrate earlier in the night with a raising of the Music Note.
- More Confetti.
Some 200 pounds of confetti shower down on revelers at the stroke of midnight.
- Longest Fireworks Show.
At the stroke of midnight, the 2015 fireworks show was the longest ever for a New Year’s celebration in Nashville, lasting approximately five minutes.
- Toast, Boast, and Post!
Each year we take a second during the show and do a thing called the Toast, Boast, and Post. A moment when everyone takes out their phones. Holds them up. Takes a picture. Then posts on social media for all to see.
