Don't Miss Dive Fest 2022 at The Dive Motel & Swim

Dive Fest is sponsored by Patron and Mill Creek Brewing Co.



Dive Fest 2022 is The Dive Motel & Swim Club’s first annual music festival to kick off pool season at the funkiest hangout hotel on April 30 and May 1, 2022. The two-day event will see some of Nashville’s best hip-hop, pop, country, and rock ‘n’ roll acts performing for pool guests throughout the daylight hours, with a dozen local and nationally-recognized comics performing stand-up in the bar.


Live performances will culminate each night with a poolside fire show, performed at sunset by Nashville performance troupe The Mystery Flavours. Poolside DJ sets by RUVS (Saturday) and Amy Darling (Sunday) will close out each night. The state-of-the-art system, installed by premier audio design and integration company, Pineapple Audio, will be sure to keep the party pumping!


In addition to the entertainment, Dive Fest has invited local artists, vintage sellers, and a tarot reader to join the party.

Dive Fest will begin at 1 p.m. both days, and run until 11 p.m. Tickets are $25 — the same price as a 2022 weekday price and a fraction of the weekend rate ($40).

About The Dive Motel Previously a dilapidated, 1956 Motor Inn, called “The Key Motel,” The Dive Motel was reimagined as the type of experience Founders/Owners Lyon Porter and Jersey Banks would want to share with their friends, old and new. Its design (by owner Lyon Porter) is a mixture of Classic Motel Americana meets Pantone inspired Romantic Nostalgia. Each of the 23 rooms are uniquely designed and one of a kind. All rooms come with the signature 'Party Switch' that spins a handcrafted Disco Ball by Yolanda Baker, the last American maker, to the tunes of “Dive Radio”, consisting of 4 channels: Sex, Drugs, Rock & Roll and Sleep. From the hand picked vintage decor to the original 70’s wallpaper, wood paneling, shag carpet and soaking tubs - she’s a blast from the past, back to claim her former glory. In addition to the pool (heated in the winter) and hot tub, the property features a Dive Bar & Lounge that serves cold drinks and hot food late into the night.
