Concert promoter and festival producer AC Entertainment, co-founder and producer of the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester, Tenn., has opened a Nashville office.
Nina Miller has been named director and will head up the Nashville office. Prior to joining AC Entertainment, Miller spent 13 years with Gibson Brands, initially as vice president of entertainment relations and events, and later as executive director of The Gibson Foundation. Miller is currently on the advisory committee for both Music Makes Us and Music Health Alliance.
"We're pretty excited about this move,” says Ashley Capps, founder of Knoxville-based AC Entertainment, who cites recent work with the Nashville Convention & Visitors Bureau, Marathon Music Works, the Nashville Symphony, and such venues as the Cannery Ballroom, Municipal Auditorium, Exit/In, Ryman Auditorium, and Bridgestone Arena as catalysts for the move. “Nashville is core to the work we are doing as a company. The city is bursting with inspiration and energy, and we are excited to be spending more time here.”
The new office will be an extension of all facets of AC Entertainment’s endeavors, including festival and event creation and production, as well as booking, marketing and promotion, both in Nashville and throughout the country. AC is also producer of the Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit Oct. 25-27 in Asheville, N.C.
