Nashville's Fan Fair, the crown jewel of country music festivals, will be held June 13-16 in downtown Nashville, where fans will witness more than 30 hours of concert performances by many of country's biggest acts. In its second year in downtown Nashville (having moved from Tennessee State Fairgrounds), the 2002 Fan Fair will host 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.

Already confirmed to perform on the main stages at Adelphia are Jessica Andrews, Brooks & Dunn, Kenny Chesney, Diamond Rio, Sara Evans, Alan Jackson, Toby Keith, Martina McBride, Jamie O'Neal, Brad Paisley, SHeDAISY, Keith Urban, and Lee Ann Womack, with more to be announced. Other artists slated to take part in this year's Fair include Trace Adkins, Chad Austin, BlackHawk, Tammy Cochran, Billy Ray Cyrus, the Derailers, Joe Diffie, Deryl Dodd, Vince Gill, Pat Green, Andy Griggs, Ty Herndon, Jolie & the Wanted, George Jones, Tracy Lawrence, Lonestar, McBride & the Ride, Neal McCoy, Perfect Stranger, Rascal Flatts, Charlie Robison, Blake Shelton, Trick Pony, Phil Vassar, and Wild Horses.

Four-day ticket packages, which run from $65 to $145, give fans access to all the Adelphia Coliseum and Riverfront Park shows, exhibits and autograph booths at the Nashville Convention Center, and shuttle transportation around the city. Separate tickets or admission fees are required for admittance to many satellite Fan Fair engagements, such as performances at the Grand Ole Opry. As was the case with last year's Fair, half of the net proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to charities specified by the participating artists.
