The fifth annual OUTLOUD Music Festival is set to return with in-person live music on Friday, June 4th and Saturday, June 5th in a lot near Nissan Stadium at 14 James Robertson Pkwy, Nashville, TN 37213.
Produced by Good Neighbor Festivals, the two-day music festival will celebrate LGBTQ+ artists and allies with performances by Japanese Breakfast, Todrick Hall, Soccer Mommy, Tank and The Bangas and many more local and national artists.
“After a year without live events, it’s more important than ever to support LGBTQ+ artists and live music,” said Jack Davis, Founder of Good Neighbor Festivals. “This year’s OUTLOUD Music Festival showcases musicians that are breaking barriers, pushing genres and leading the way for a whole new generation of artists. It’s going to be a weekend of unforgettable performances.”
OUTLOUD Music Festival will feature two nights of national touring acts and local Nashville artists on one stage, beginning each night at 7:30 PM. A different RuPaul’s Drag Race Queen will host each evening and kickoff the event with a performance. Local drag stars will make appearances throughout the night. Festival goers will be able to enjoy the show and a curated selection of Nashville food trucks with full-service bars and other activities.
On Friday, the boundary pushing, indie pop singer-songwriter Japanese Breakfast will perform selections from her new album, which releases the same day. Nashville’s own Soccer Mommy will offer songs inspiring resilience. The entire evening will be hosted by Derrick Barry appearing as Britney Spears with performances by The Blam Blams, Kenna and appearances by Cya Inhale, Alexia Noelle, Vidalia Anne Gentry and Chevelle Brooks.
Saturday night features the multi-talented singer, rapper, actor, director, choreographer, and global sensation for the internet age, Todrick Hall with the sonically diverse and unpredictable Tank and the Bangas. The stage will be hosted by Coco Montrese with performances by local favorites Freak Daddy and Manrelic, and appearances by Shelby La Banks, Britney Banks, Chyna and Portia Clinique.
VIP ticket holders are invited to a special kickoff party at The Dive Motel on Thursday, June 3rd from 6 – 9 PM, featuring a live DJ, cocktails, swimming and other surprises.
The festival has been completely reimagined for the new era of enhanced safety, health and wellness protocols. Capacity will be limited and spacing in-line with the recommended guidance from Metro Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control. While this will be one of the largest live music events in Nashville since the pandemic began, it will also have strict controls and safety procedures to combat the spread of COVID-19.
OUTLOUD Music Festival is presented by Music City Prep Clinic and supported by Jack Daniels, Volley Tequila Seltzer, Camelot Cares and 107.5 The River.
