Next Big Nashville 2010 lineup

Next Big Nashville is in its fifth year, and the organizers have furthered their goal of becoming a smaller, regional version of SXSW or the CMJ Music Marathon by netting a solid group of nationally known indie acts to headline.  It’s an interesting lineup – obvious choices like Yeasayer and Wavves are joined by the likes of Moon Duo, Garotas Suecas, and Casiotone for the Painfully Alone (who’s on his final tour under that moniker).  Javelin, Tennis, The Hood Internet, The Mynabirds, and These United States will be there, too.  Georgia is represented by Washed Out, Elf Power, and (*cringe*) Vonnegutt.

NBN has joined together with the Leadership Music Digital Summit this year, but that’s more relevant to the industry side of things than it is to the live music.  The music is spread out over 4 days (September 29-October 2) and will feature over 150 bands at 12 different venues.  Most of those bands appear to be from the Nashville area, with some of the more notable ones being Turb0 Fruits, Heavy Cream, Glossary, The Protomen, and Cheap Time.

Honestly, the most appealing thing about this festival is the price.  Earlybird wristbands are $40, and after those sell out the price only goes up to $50.  The wristbands get you into any venue for all 4 days.
