NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

The Predators aren’t the only thing that has Nashville and Middle Tennessee buzzing.

Preparations are underway for the CMA Music Festival and Bonnaroo, which both begin on Thursday.

Officials at Nashville International Airport told Channel 4 they will be fully staffed and have extra security, maintenance and staff to help with lines, directions, buses and ride-share drivers.

The airport is expecting to set a record for departures on Sunday or Monday of next week.

Airport officials are asking passengers to arrive two hours before their flight.
