Let Freedom Sing: Nashville’s July 4th Celebration

Nashville's July 4th event features top artists, fireworks, drones, and family-friendly activities.

NASHVILLE – Multi-platinum global entertainer Chris Young will headline the Let Freedom Sing! Music City July 4th event presented by Dr Pepper. This downtown celebration will feature one of the country’s largest July 4th fireworks shows, which for the first time will include drone light elements by Sky Elements Drone Show, synchronized to live music from the GRAMMY-winning Nashville Symphony.

The event will also include performances by a multi-genre lineup featuring artists such as Yola, a six-time GRAMMY-nominated artist, Girl Named Tom, winners of NBC’s The Voice in 2021, and Blessing Offor, a two-time GRAMMY Award nominee.

In addition to the concerts, the Amazon Family Fun Zone will offer inflatables, live music, and other activities for children. Performances at the Amazon Family Fun Zone will include The Magi, The Woods, Small Time Rock Stars, San Rafael Band, and Joe West Band.

The event, produced by Music City Inc. through the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp, is free and open to the public. It aims to entertain Nashvillians and attract visitors to generate economic activity and tax revenue for the city. Last year, Let Freedom Sing! drew an estimated 250,000 attendees and generated $11.6 million in direct visitor spending.

Charitable partner PENCIL will be featured at the event, which will raise funds and collect school supplies for Metro Nashville Public Schools. Attendees are encouraged to make a contribution to PENCIL.

As part of sustainability initiatives, ORCA has donated Hydra reusable water bottles, and the NCVC will continue practices such as recycling and composting. Safety measures will include first-aid tents, hydration stations, and misting areas.
