The Flaming Lips to Headline First Annual SoundHarvest Music Festival in Nashville

Bluewater Music creates festival to celebrate the city’s diverse musical taste at 

Centennial Park on October 17

Bluewater Music is pleased to announce the creation of SoundHarvest Music Festival, a music and arts event to take place on the Parthenon Lawn at Centennial Park on Saturday, October 17. Doors for this all-ages event will open at 11 a.m., with nonstop music on two stages until 11 p.m..

Festival Director, Monica Copciac, says of the event, “We noticed the changing music scene in Nashville and realized the city didn’t have a unique festival focused around rock and pop. Thus, SoundHarvest was born.” The Flaming Lips are confirmed as the headliner, with more great bands to be announced in the coming weeks. Soundharvest is also committed to showcasing Nashville’s best by featuring local bands on both stages, as well as a vendor area with Nashville restaurants and artisans.

“SoundHarvest Music Festival is a great addition to our live music scene, and I welcome them to Nashville,” Mayor Karl Dean said. “I always say you can never have too much live music in Music City, and it’s always great to see a diversity of genres represented. I know that festival goers will enjoy themselves in our beautiful Centennial Park.”

SoundHarvest is sponsored in part by Lighting 100, Musician’s Corner, Sarah and David Ingram, Ticketfly, D&D Events, The Nashville Scene and Do615. Thistle Farms and The Cumberland River Compact will be onsite as part of SoundHarvest’s local non-profit spotlight.

Tickets are $45 in advance and $55 at the door and are available for purchase beginning today at 5 p.m. CT via Ticketfly or There will also be a limited number of $100 advance /$150 door VIP tickets available that include a private viewing area with catering, exclusive bar, and private restrooms.

Bluewater Music, founded in 1985 by Brownlee Ferguson, is a premiere independent music publisher, copyright administrator, and artist management firm located in Nashville, TN that prides itself on adding value to the songwriters and publishers they represent.
