Get ready for a night filled with live music, fireworks, and the midnight Music Note Drop in Nashville on the last night of the year.
We get to ring in the new year and rock out the old in Music City with CMA Entertainer of the Year Lainey Wilson, Elle King, Thomas Rhett, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and thousands of your closest friends at Nashville’s New Year’s Eve celebration.
We hope you can bring your party hats, make some noise, and count down to the fireworks and midnight “Music Note Drop®”!
Luggage Drop is the official bag check for New Year’s Eve Live: Nashville’s Big Bash. We will be stationed at the primary entrances to the event. We look forward to seeing you there!
