Each year, CMA Fest brings hundreds of thousands of country music fans to Nashville, giving you a chance to get in on the action, with increased trips to concerts and late-night shows all weekend long, June 7 – 10, 2018.

More about CMA Fest

Locals and tourists will look for a way to get around town and escape the hassle of finding a parking spot downtown starting Thursday, June 7 through Sunday, June 10. They’ll be turning to you to easily get to and from the festival. View the full schedule for who’s playing.


CMA Fest = more rides

Know your way around the music festival

When picking up and dropping off during CMA Fest weekend, we recommend using the Uber in-app navigation that will direct you to one of the nearest Uber Zones listed below:

The downtown Uber Zones are best for pickups and dropoffs when riders are heading to and from CMA Fest, pre- and after-parties, or the downtown Nashville area. While the designated Uber Lot at Nissan Stadium (Lot T), located south of the stadium between S 1st and S 2nd St, is best for riders going to and from CMA Fest concerts at Nissan Stadium.

  • Downtown Uber Zones
  • Uber Zone at Nissan Stadium (Lot T)
  • Road closures


Picking up or dropping off on the Korean Veterans Blvd Bridge, in bike lanes, away from the curbside, or in crosswalks may result in a citation from the Nashville Police.
