LEXINGTON, KY (CelebrityAccess) – AC Entertainment, producer of Bonnaroo, Forecastle, High Water, Moon River, and other top music festivals, has today (Feb. 21) announced Railbird Festival.
Set to take place on The Grounds at Keeneland, in Lexington August 10 – 11, 2019, Railbird is set to mesh a world-class festival experience with Kentucky’s iconic bourbon and thoroughbreds.
In announcing the event, Ashley Capps, president of AC Entertainment said: “With all of our festivals, we aspire to create an experience that stands apart from others – that is a true celebration of place, of the richness and uniqueness of a community. That, for us, is at the heart of any truly great festival experience. What a place this is, and what a team to collaborate with. This iconic setting at Keeneland in a city like Lexington, Kentucky, and these visionary leaders who make it all work, from bourbon to horses to bluegrass and everything in between. We couldn’t be more excited for this new venture.”
While musical acts have not yet been announced, festival planners have said the lineup will feature a mix of rock, Americana, folk, bluegrass and more.
It wouldn’t be Kentucky without it, so bourbon also will play a spotlight role at Railbird. A number of bourbon distillers will be on-site with special, exclusive offerings, available only at Railbird. Artisanal and local foods will be at the forefront, along with a number of craft beers.
Railbird will also give back to the community by partnering with local nonprofit organizations Central Music Academy, Central Kentucky Riding for Hope, Fayette Alliance and Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance. Each nonprofit will receive monetary support from the festival, and will have a presence on-site during the event.
