    Nashville Boogie Updates

    We never would’ve thought that moving the Nashville Boogie Vintage Weekender from May to October would be saving it from a worldwide pandemic. Luckily, the show will go on!
    There are already a ton of new changes in store for you. We decided to go back to our roots in our 6th year. We ditched the massive resort. It was a fun 5 year fling in a pretty place but we got tired of the corporate atmosphere. It didn’t flow as well with the festival being across the street from it’s self. Now we are entirely in the Music Valley Center parking lot. The primary venue is the classic honky tonk, The Nashville Palace. We will also be taking over the Scoreboard Grill, whose doors stay open 23 hours a day for us. The car show and vintage vendor bazaar are in the parking lot between the two venues. We will grow to other venues on the same property as we move forward.

    First order of business, get your tickets now. We no longer have room for thousands of attendees. Get them right HERE.
    We will mail hard copies in June.

    Before we go in to more details, let’s talk about the amazing lineup!
    Nashville Boogie Vintage 2020
    What??? Tiger Army? Levi & The Rockats reunion for the 2nd time in 40 years? A Wild Records party? Bands and fans from all over the world make this a legend of a weekend.

    We’ll post videos and all information over at soon.

    We have much more to discuss, so don’t go nowhere.

    The Hot Rod Boogie Car Show is FREE to the public. This portion of the event has live DJs, classic cars, a vintage vendor bazaar, and is a fundraiser for the Shriner’s Hospital for Children. Friday evening will be a cruise-in with reserved parking near the vendor bazaar. The official car show is Saturday, October 3rd behind the Nashville Palace. Our pal “Axle” is coming out from Southern California to host the car show with us this year. You may know him from his own weekender, the Rhythm Collision as well as his work Viva Las Vegas car show for 20 years. Registration available soon.
