Country music festivals are a right of summer and while most will look very different in 2021, these scheduled festivals promise your outdoor music fix in a fun and safe environment.

Like 2020, this list of 2021 country music festivals will be updated throughout the year to reflect postponements and cancelations due to the coronavirus pandemic. Most festivals slated for late winter and early spring have been pushed to later months. Several just haven't announced plans for 2021. The information below reflects newly announced dates.

Typically, over a dozen well-known festivals begin early in the year and run through December, featuring A-list artists like Jason AldeanChris Stapleton, Thomas Rhett and Luke Bryan. Miranda Lambert will appear often, as will hot newcomers like Brett Young, Dustin Lynch and Kane Brown. Dan + Shay was another with several headlining slots in 2020 that became 2021 gigs instead. Dierks Bentley is going to be virtually everywhere, or everywhere virtually if it comes to that.
