Festival Description

Three Days of Music Hell in February — Come have a near music death experience! Bring your Ex to make it especially hellish! Free Snowballs in NashHell throughout the event.

Come play on a Stage (you need to schedule) or at the all night Guillotine Sing Ring. Nightly parties include the Zombie Pajama Party, Polar Bear Party and Tommy Barnes Gong & Bong Show! There will be education and mentoring for musicians by those that have been through NashHell so you don’t have to. Between Puzzle Map Hunts for music charms and spells to escape NashHell, Ouija Board co-writing sessions and a Music Row Garage Sale you will have a devilish good time.

Why go to NashHell before it freezes over? Well, being negative isn’t necessarily a bad thing there. NashHell is full of moaning. You complain, we answer. Let’s hear your personal observations and get you motivated toward positive solutions. We’ll listen, give you a reason why and possible work a rounds to keep you out of NashHell. We help solve problems one on one. So, whether it is to learn, find out consumer habits in the market or how to change with the industry, we can help guide you into the light.
