Hey Hollywooders! Here’s what’s Good in the ‘Wood today: music festivals are BACK, baby!
The HollyGOOD news comes at a time when so many music lovers have been missing music festivals:
there is no place in this entire world that makes me feel more alive, more accepted, more confident, more unified, and more FREE than music festivals do. 💜 I am so grateful to live this beautiful life & to be able to experience these moments with such beautiful people & artists

Railbird 2021: lineup, dates, tickets, and more details
Outside Lands isn’t the only music festival returning this year. Railbird Festival is returning to Lexington, Kentucky August 28-29 2021.
My Morning Jacket and Leon Bridges are headlining on Saturday and Dave Matthews Band and Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit are headlining on Sunday.
See the full Railbird 2021 lineup here:
Railbird offers a pretty unique music festival experience. The festival name is inspired by horse racing enthusiasts named railbirds who are known for sticking close to the action, literally hanging onto the rail as each horse races down the track. Held on historical Grounds at Keeneland, where horse races are annually held, the music festival offers highly curated bourbon experiences and unique culinary experiences. There’s even a family-friendly area with pony rides, arts and crafts, and other interactive experiences for the kiddos.
Get Railbird 2021 tickets on the official website.
Burning Man 2021
Not every festival is coming back in 2021. Burning Man 2021 is officially canceled.
“For 2021 we know the need for community has never been stronger, and building community is what Burners do best. We also recognize that the pandemic is not over,” Burning Man CEO Marian Goodell shared in a video announcement on Tuesday.
“We’ve decided to focus our energy on building Black Rock City 2022,” she goes on to say. “It’s too important to do half-a**ed, so we’re doubling down on next year.”
The accompanying blog post encourages Burners to build community wherever they are with a list of tips as well as virtual resources.
While it’s up to each festival to decide what’s best for their community, we’re excited to see some festivals coming back on the calendar for 2021. As it was shown with Bad Bunny ticket sales last week, so many of us miss live music. We miss watching movies on the big screen. We miss sharing experiences together, and we’re ready to get back to that, stronger than ever before.
