The Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp has announced that the city’s annual July 4 concert and fireworks display will be live-streamed and the fireworks display will be broadcast live on local television through a partnership with WKRN-News 2.
The live-stream will start at 5 p.m. at visitmusiccity.com/july4th and will include five hours of live music. At 9 p.m., News 2 will begin broadcasting the music from Ascend Amphitheater commercial-free and will include a portion of headliner Sheryl Crow’s performance, along with the Nashville Symphony Orchestra performing live music synchronized to the 30-minute fireworks display.
“For years, the biggest request has been to broadcast the fireworks show locally on TV,” said Ken Levitan, board chair of the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp and co-president of Vector Management. “We’ve been working on this, and we are extremely pleased to partner with News 2 this year so that Nashvillians who can’t make it downtown can still enjoy the spectacular fireworks show synchronized to the music of the GRAMMY-winning Nashville Symphony.”
Let Freedom Sing! July 4 in Music City presented by Dr Pepper includes two days of festivities, three stages, 15 live music acts and the largest fireworks show in the country – all free and open to the public at a new location at Ascend Amphitheater and The Green at Riverfront Park.
