Jack Daniel's Music City Midnight: New Year's Eve in Nashville

New Year's Eve - Fun Facts

So much more free music

Nashville's 2019 New Year's Eve concert is packed with amazing artists Keith Urban, Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit, The Struts, Amanda Shires, and the Fisk Jubilee Singers playing for 6+ hours of FREE live music! Storme Warren and Kelly Sutton are emcees.

Music Note Drop®

The 400-pound, 16-foot-tall red music note will be raised and dropped on a 140-foot-tall tower. The note is made of aluminum and acrylic and contains more than 13,000 LED lights. New last year, the Note was three dimensional and featured video boards.

Fireworks over the State Capitol

The Bicentennial Mall location will showcase the State Capitol during a small fireworks show at 6pm when the Music Note is raised and another display at the stroke of midnight.

Biodegradable Confetti

Confetti will shower down on revelers at the stroke of midnight. The rice paper confetti will be cleaned up immediately after the event concludes. Any confetti that is missed during cleanup should dissolve within two rainfalls.

There's an app for that

The Nashville New Year’s Eve app, available in the App Store and Google Play, gives you the most up-to-date information on the event, the music, official merchandise, and everything else Music City Midnight has to offer.

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.

It's a big production

Last year's event used more than three miles of fiber optic cable, over five miles of power cables, 2,000 cable ramps, over 1,132 lighting fixtures, 142,150 square feet of flooring and 164 audio speakers. The production crew includes approximately 250 people.
