The Outloud Music Festival was formed in 2017 to celebrate to celebrate all things LGBTQI+ and like minded allies. They recently announced the lineup for the 2021 iteration of the festival and it looks to be a phenomenal gathering. Musical performances by Japanese Breakfast, Soccer Mommy, The Blam Blams, Tank And The Bangas, Freak Daddy and loads more will occur alongside Drag performers Todrick Hall, Derrick Barry, Coco Montrese and more. The full lineup is worth a gaze or two.
The official press release for the event notes that safety precautions have been re-imagined for this years undertaking that include limited capacity, reasonable spacing and other strict controls to help control possible COVID-19 spread. Combined with the current availability of vaccines for everyone 16+, it seems that early June will actually be a reasonable timeline for attending live music safely. It’s a bizarre feeling to see a full blown Music Festival being announced and know that we’re re-emerging into a place where it’s OK to attend! Bizarre but exciting.
Tickets are on sale here and are broken into various tiers to control the capacity and spacing. You can follow the fest on Instagram @OUTLOUDMusicFestival for more updates about performers, sponsors and event details. See you there.
