Start your engines, Nashville. The Big Machine Music City Grand Prix is back Friday, Aug. 4-Sunday, Aug. 6 — and you’ll want to make more than a quick pit stop.

For three days, the premium motor sports and music festival will fill downtown with events focused on:

  • Racing — During the NTT INDYCAR SERIES on Sunday, Aug. 6, drivers from around the world will race along a temporary street circuit past Nissan Stadium, over the Korean War Veteran Memorial Bridge, and into downtown 80 times. That’s 168 miles. Bonus: Check out practice rounds + more races on Friday and Saturday.
  • Music — Artists like rap legend Flo Rida, singer-songwriter Chris Janson, country star Megan Moroney, and more will perform just blocks away from Broadway all weekend. See the full lineup.
  • Food — Find delicious bites from local food trucks in the Fan Zone, high-end catering in Premium Clubs, and kids’ favorites in the Family Fun Zone.
