Nashville’s ‘Howl at the Moon’ Music Festival coincides with solar eclipse

The inaugural Howl at the Moon Music Festival promises an unforgettable kick off with three days of non-stop music, food, plenty of activities and the only total solar eclipse to be seen in this country since 1979. Slated for August 19-21, this indie artist salute and countdown to the Great American Solar Eclipse will feature over 40 bands, representing a variety of musical genres. Performers include Jenn Bostic, The Young Fables, Karen Waldrup and Alyssa Trahan, to name a few.

The ‘Howl at the Moon’ Music Festival will be live-streamed on YouTube Live, Facebook Live and Skype, from the beautiful festival location, Thompson Place Golf Range, 3453 W. Hamilton Rd., just 10 minutes from downtown Nashville. A mixture of main stage and acoustic stage performers will entertain throughout the day and into the wee hours of the morning for those choosing to camp onsite.

Nashville, Tennessee is one of the few major cities offering a total view of the eclipse. Statisticians estimate 5 million Americans will sojourn to Tennessee to see the eclipse, and over a million have chosen Nashville as their destination of choice to experience the eclipse. Organizers have included international access to the entire Howl at the Moon Music Festival and Eclipse Watch Party experience with a global broadcast throughout the weekend for those who can’t make it out.

“We are excited to feature incredible music in Music City at this Woodstock-style, once-in-a-lifetime festival event,” explained Charles Howe, President and CEO of CHOMCO Productions, producers of the event. “Designed as a global countdown to the eclipse, our team is focused on bringing people together in an outdoor setting, to commemorate the great eclipse.”
