Nashville Bike Week officials released the news of a new location of the Gaylord Opryland Convention Center grounds for the festival.

The festival has been surrounded by controversy - one of the most recent being the state Health Department's denial of a required mass gathering permit.

It's set for September 14 -24, and officials stated in a press release Thursday the event would take place in the large additional parking areas located near the main gates on Opry Mills Drive.

The Humphreys County Sheriff's Office also recently posted a warning to their Facebook page, saying there is a "strong potential" the ten day event will not be happening. The post was made before the move to Opryland was announced.
