Riverfront Park is located along the Cumberland River in the heart of Nashville. It has always been a favorite summer hangout spot to enjoy the Nashville skyline and the beautiful downtown lights reflecting from the water. In April of 2015, Ascend Federal Credit Union unveiled a new outdoor venue housed in Riverfront Park to give the area even more of a Music City feel. The Ascend Amphitheater is an outdoor entertainment venue housed within the 12-acre park where it plays host to various forms of entertainment including concerts and comedy shows. The amphitheater itself can accommodate up to 6,800 people (2300 seated and 4500 on the lawn), but on non-event days, the park is open for Nashvillians and visitors to enjoy the trails, dog park, and gardens.
The first concert that opened the venue took place on July 30, 2015 by Eric Church, followed by Chicago and Earth, Wind & Fire. Live Nation operates the venue and has signed a 10-year contract with Ascend Federal Credit Union. During the summer, the amphitheater is also home to the Nashville Symphony’s summer concerts.
Future concerts for 2016, include Bryan Adams, Alabama Shakes, Styx with the Nashville Symphony, Jimmy Buffett, The Music of John Williams with the Nashville Symphony, Modest Mouse, Journey, and Ray Lamontagne. Tickets for events can be purchased through Live Nation or Ascend Amphitheater’s webpage.
