Nashville's New Year's Eve Fun Facts
- Nashville offers the best 'bash' for your buck!
This town loves a good party, and all at a great value. Nashville throws one of the biggest New Year's Eve celebrations in the country with a full evening of FREE live music, fireworks and Music City's own midnight Music Note Drop®.
- Where else would you see a 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 125-foot structure. The Music Note Drop® will trigger a fireworks display and major confetti cannons as it reaches the midnight mark.
- Shine Bright.
More than 420 light bulbs are used in the '2015' sign that will grace the stage.
- 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.
- Confetti Cannons.
More than 20 pounds of confetti will rain down on the New Year's Eve crowd at midnight.

More than 100 crew members work over the course of four days to construct the stage, sound, lights and video.
