Several Nashville venues are among the “most buzzed about” venues. Eventbrite and Mashworks gathered 12.5 million social media conversations across Twitter, Facebook, blogs and forums for more than 600 venues, from Aug. 1, 2013, through July 31, 2014.

Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry ranked as the 11th most talked about U.S. venue on social media, just behind NYC’s Pacha. The list’s Top 10 was primarily filled with EDM-related music clubs.

Other Nashville venues making the Top 100 include the Ryman Auditorium (No. 52 on the list), CMA Theatre (No. 59), and Mercy Lounge (No. 79).

Forty-three percent of the conversations surrounding these venues came from millennials, aged 18 to 34.
