Blended Festival in Nashville, Music Headliners from the A-List

Lil' Jon

What is Blended? It’s a music festival, but it blends (get it?) culinary delights, craft beers and wines, and A-list performers into a multi-sensory, two-day event that offers a little bit of something for everyone.

This year, the festival is happening across three weekends in first Nashville, then Austin and San Diego. The music headliners for Nashville, were absolutely top tier, with performances by the following:

  • Lil Jon
  • Bryce Vine
  • Kylie Frey
  • Brandi Cyrus
  • Kaskade
  • Ludacris
  • SZNS
  • Brody Jenner x Devin Lucien
  • Matt Stell
  • DJ Shift
  • Cisco
  • plus many more.

Blended doesn’t just blend the culinary with the auditory, it blends a variety of music genres as well. Nashville’s lineup was more country-heavy than usual, but that makes sense. Guests enjoyed the performances of some of music’s biggest names with glasses of their favorite local wines and plates of the best dishes around. Also taking the stages were a number of food-and-drink centered performers.

San Diego and Austin

But Blended isn’t done yet! The same atmosphere with perhaps a little less country vibe will be coming to Austin in September, and San Diego in October. If you want to attend, visit Blended Festival’s website to purchase tickets.

Austin’s Blended Festival will happen September 10th-11th at Hartman Lawn at Long Center. San Diego will go down October 15th-16th at Spanish Landing Park. Both will offer the same local varieties that Nashville did, but with Austin and San Diego flairs. All three Blended Festival events aim to offer a little bit of everything and if Nashville is a sign of things to come, they’ve knocked 2021 out of the park.
