Railbird Music Festival Comes Roaring Back with Phenomenal Lineup

Railbird Music Festival announced a mind-blowing lineup for its 2021 event that is bonafide fire. Set to take place August 28-29 on the grounds of historic Keeneland Race Track in Lexington, KY, the bill includes headliners My Morning Jacket, Leon Bridges, Dave Matthews Band, and Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit.

After a wildly successful inaugural festival in 2019 with a stacked bill that included headliners The Raconteurs, Brandi Carlile, Hozier, Tyler Childs and Gary Clark, Jr., organizers were forced to cancel the 2020 event due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Produced by AC Entertainment and Lexington entrepreneur David Helmers, Railbird is clearly set to come roaring back.

“While we all missed live music and experiences tremendously last year, the Railbird team looked at it as a time to build on the success of our inaugural festival and come back even better than before,” said Helmers in a statement. “We’ve been planning intensely and are excited for the festival’s return to Keeneland with a list of world-class artists, bourbon, and culinary experiences.”
