LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Lexington's Railbird Music Festival announced on Tuesday its headliners for the weekend bill, including Grammy-winning jam band Dave Matthews Band and Kentucky's own My Morning Jacket.
The music festival produced by AC Entertainment and Lexington entrepreneur David Helmers is set for Aug. 28-29 at the Grounds at Keeneland.
The festival debuted in 2019 and was canceled in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“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. “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.”
General Admission and VIP two-day passes are now availablewith a limited quantity starting at only $155. Layaway plans are also available, with payment options starting at $25 down.
A portion of proceeds from every ticket sold will benefit Railbird’s nonprofit community partners, Fayette Alliance, Central Kentucky Riding for Hope and Central Music Academy.

VIP patrons will have access to all general admission amenities, as well as exclusive Limestone and Elkhorn Stage lounges with air-conditioning, a VIP Village with complimentary local hors d’oeuvres and spa services, private bars, luxury restrooms, fast-track entrances to the festival, free on-site parking for the weekend, commemorative Railbird merchandise and more.
