The American Pyrotechnics Association (APA) has selected 13 unique “must see” fireworks events that will light up the skies this Independence Day that you won’t want to miss! Included in this list are cities from across the nation with Nashville taking the number 6 spot.

Here is what American Pyrotechnics Association had to say about the Nashville Fourth of July Fireworks display.

“Choreographed to music played by the Nashville Symphony Orchestra, the fireworks display produced by Pyro Shows of Tennessee has grown to epic proportions. The 30 minute fireworks display will be fired from LP Field, setting the stage for Nashville’s most spectacular fireworks show to-date, and the largest display in the South.”

This year’s line-up for Fourth of July  pays particular homage to Nashville’s strong indie and alternative scene and features Erin McCarley, Andrew Combs and Ruby Amanfu, who will open the free concert at 5 p.m. by starting her set with the National Anthem. Also sharing the bill is breakout country duo Maddie & Tae. Sheryl Crow will headline the concert, followed by the Nashville Symphony Orchestra, which will be led by Associate Conductor Vinay Parameswaran, accompanying the fireworks show.

Fourth of July concerts in Nashville this year have been moved to Ascend Amphitheater with a maximum capacity of 7,100 attendees and the capacity at The Green at Riverfront Park will be 7,300. If you are interested in seeing the Nashville fireworks, here are the best places to view the fireworks.
