Los Angeles trio Cheat Codes and Nashville’s DJ Hish have been added to the Big Machine Music City Grand Prix concert lineups, which also include Tim McGraw, Carly Pearce and more.

The lineup on the Nissan Stadium campus will satisfy the diverse appetite of music fans with even more off-track entertainment. Admission to each evening’s marquee concert is included in the same-day race ticket in any price range.

Cheat Codes’ total stream tally eclipses six billion plays with a diverse discography, including the Platinum pop radio top five “No Promises” (feat. Demi Lovato), the Gold-certified “Feels Great” (feat. Fetty Wap & CVBZ) and Gold breakout “Sex” with Kriss Kross Amsterdam. On the international front, “Only You” (feat. Little Mix) soared to No. 1 on pop radio in the UK while the band received dozens of Platinum certifications in 20 countries.

Special guests MacKenzie Porter and Matt Stell will also join Cheat Codes for unreleased collaborations on Sunday, Aug. 7, beginning at 1 p.m. CT on the Cumberland River Stage, located on the corner of Titans Way and Victory Ave.

The Cumberland River Stage in Big Machine X will also feature daily performances from rising stars from 9:30 a.m.-6 p.m. on Friday; 9 a.m.-7:15 p.m. on Saturday; and 9 a.m.-2:15 p.m. on Sunday. Among those scheduled are CMT Next Women of Country alumnus Hannah Dasher, Spotify’s Fresh Finds artist Carter Faith, and Big Machine Label Group’s Mackenzie Carpenter and Tiera Kennedy.

Since 2011, DJ Hish has been writing songs and playing at some of the biggest events in Music City. The songwriter turned artist-producer quickly began to make a name for himself with his electro-infused spin on country music. He has toured with Brantley Gilbert, Chase Bryant and Dustin Lynch, among others, and has performed at some of country music’s most notable festivals. Hish is currently a resident DJ at prominent Nashville venues while continuing to play festivals around the globe.

Hish will open for McGraw on the ZYN Main Stage on Saturday, Aug. 6, beginning at 8:10 p.m. The ZYN Main Stage is adjacent to Cumberland Park between the Korean War Veterans Memorial Bridge and the pedestrian bridge.

Officially kicking off the festivities, the Freedom Friday Tribute Concert presented by Wesley Mortgage will feature Aaron Lewis, Deana Carter, Abby Anderson and Jackson Dean. The entertainment on Aug. 5 begins at 7 p.m. on the ZYN Main Stage.
