The enormous country music festival known as Fan Fair has set its 2003 edition for June 5-8 in Nashville, with hundreds of artists planning to play more than 40 hours worth of concerts at venues throughout the city. Like last year's festival, Fan Fair 2003 will feature headlining nightly concerts on two stages at Adelphia Coliseum -- home of the NFL's Tennessee Titans -- as well as daily performances in Riverfront Park, exhibits at the Nashville Convention Center, late-night music at clubs as part of "Fan Fair After Hours," and more.
Among the artists set to perform at Fan Fair 2003 are Trace Adkins, Steve Azar, Chris Cagle, Terri Clark, Kellie Coffey, Bill Engvall, Andy Griggs, Jennifer Hanson, Tracy Lawrence, Little Big Town, Jo Dee Messina, John Michael Montgomery, Montgomery Gentry, Neal McCoy, Pinmonkey, Sixwire, Anthony Smith, Marty Stuart, Rick Trevino, Trick Pony, Keith Urban, and Mark Wills.
Brooks & Dunn, Deana Carter, Kenny Chesney, Diamond Rio, Sara Evans, Lonestar, and Martina McBride have already signed on to play the Adelphia Coliseum shows.
New for 2003 will be a celebrity lecture series with country musicians answering questions and discussing their music and related issues. Separate tickets are required for the series, but four-day ticket packages for Fan Fair are currently on sale, ranging from $86-$125. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster or Fan Fair's official Web site.
