It’s coming. It’s on the horizon. Can you feel it? It’s almost here. This year’s Next Big Nashville Festival (Sept. 29-Oct. 2) promises to be yet another step in the direction we’ve all been hoping for: a top-tier, nationally recognized rock festival featuring big-name headliners and all. Jason Moon Wilkins and the other folks at NBN have announced the initial lineup for the fest, as well as a list of participants in this year’s Leadership Music Digital Summit, the learn-more-about-the-biz, conference portion of the festival.

The initial lineup just features some national acts and a handful of nationally and regionally recognized locals, but it’s pretty exciting news to find that your wristband or badge will get you into the Yeasayer show at Cannery Ballroom on Oct. 1. That’s right. I dropped a name. Follow me after the jump to see the other names JMW and the NBN staff have dropped, as well as info on where to get your early-bird wristbands and badges and more. NBN fever. It’s catching.

There will be over 150 artists playing this year, and national acts include the following:

Yeasayer, WAVVES, A Place to Bury Strangers, Casiotone for the Painfully Alone, The Ponys, David Bazan, Javelin, The Hood Internet, Garotas Suecas, Moon Duo, The Mynabirds, Otouto, Peelander-Z, Elf Power and many more.

And the locals who have been announced:

Madi Diaz, Kyle Andrews, Keegan DeWitt, Futurebirds, Andrew Belle, Katie Herzig, Megan McCormick, Kopecky Family Band, The Apache Relay, Mikky Ekko, The Protomen, The Non-Commissioned Officers, Roman Candle, The Silver Seas and more.

Leadership Music Digital Summit speakers include:

Tim Westergren (CEO, Pandora), Ian C. Rogers (CEO, TopSpin), Troy Carter (Atom Factory Management, Lady Gaga), David Israelite (CEO, NMPA), Randall Poster (Music Supervisor), Eric Garland (Big Champagne), Russ Crupnick (NPD), Jim Griffin (OneHouse), Dorrian Porter (CEO, Mozes), Ariel Hyatt (Ariel Publicity), Mitch Bainwol (Pres., RIAA), Jon Cohen (Co-Founder, Cornerstone), Brendan Mulligan (Sonicbids), Livia Tortella (GM, Atlantic), David Airaudi (Universal), Jim Lucchese (The EchoNest), Steve Robertson (VP, A&R Atlantic), and Richard Gottehrer (CEO, The Orchard) among many others.
