Birds of a Feather Music and Arts Festival has announced its 2021 lineup featuring Dopapod, Bumpin Uglies, Magic Beans, and more. The festival is set to take place August 19th–22nd, 2021 at Thornhill Dragstrip in Morning View, KY.
The sixth annual edition of Birds of a Feather will also host Rumpke Mountain Boys, Michael Cleveland & Flamekeeper, Glostik Willy, Dizgo, Fletchers Grove, Dustin Smith & The Daydreamers, Sicard Hollow, Peridoni, Big Atomic, Elementree Livity Project, Captain Midnight Band, Highly Likely, The Harmless Varmints, Trymore Mojo, The Pickin’ Pear, and Pat Hu. Birds of a Festival will also see a number of special sets as Ohio bluegrass favorites Rumpke Mountain Boys plug in for an electric set and Captain Midnight Band brings out its Grateful Dead-centric Captain Midnight’s Wreckoning for a late-night performance.
Though Birds of a Feather is still five months away, organizers have already laid out COVID-19 safety protocols. While attendees are encouraged to wear masks everywhere, staff will enforce mandatory mask areas at the stages, bathrooms, and vending areas. Masks will also be distributed to all attendees at the entrance as well as at the merch booth at no cost. Even though BOAF has numerous safety precautions in place—including sanitization of high-contact areas—a warning on the event’s website states, “It is up to you also to help keep yourself safe.”
Tickets for Birds of a Feather 2021 are on sale now on the festival’s website.
