NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — It's day one of the NFL Draft and our city is hosting for the first time. Rain or shine tonight- day one of this draft is going to be one for the books!
The first and most important thing fans need to know before they head downtown is they should download the NFL Fan Mobile Pass App. This is meant to work as a guide for fans who plan on attending the Draft this week.
During the first round of the draft, the Korean Veterans Bridge, Nissan Stadium and the symphony center will all light up in the colors of the team "on the clock" that is currently making it's selection. Dallas and Philly did similar light displays during the last two drafts, but this coordinated display is a first for Music City.
If you are looking for a spot with a view, the best place to watch will be on the street between 2nd and 5th avenues, but there will also be video screens throughout downtown.
If you want to get to the "draft stage" you're going to have to join a "virtual line" through the app. It's very convenient, and it has the entire draft schedule for the whole weekend.
Along with the light show, there is also a free concert happening tonight. Local indie band, Moon Taxi will take the stage on the Riverfront, kicking off three days of concerts by big names.
Before heading into the concert, be sure that you know what you can and cannot bring inside.
Attendees can bring small cameras and reusable water bottles. However, if you want to bring a bag with you, it can't be bigger than 16 inches wide and 16 inches long. On the other hand, avoid bringing banners, luggage, selfie sticks, or any containers of any type. For a full list of what fans can an can't bring, there's a policy and security section on the fan pass app.
The NFL Mobile Pass app will also list the many activities that are being offered here. There are plenty of discounts, deals, and prizes that can be won by fans as well.
The app is fast and easy to download and will act as your guide over the next three days as Music City temporarily transforms into Draftville.
