LGBTQ + music festival comes to Nashville in June

Nashville is less than two months away from the return of major outdoor music festivals – according to the plans just unveiled for the OUTLOUD Music Festival coming to Music City in June.

OUTLOUD will take place on June 4th and 5th on a property next to Nissan Stadium. It is billed as a celebration of “LGBTQ + Artists and Allies”. Performers include Todrick Hall, Nashville’s own soccer mom, Japanese breakfast, Tank and the Bangas, and the stars of “RuPaul’s Drag Race”.

Tickets start at $ 44 and go on sale Wednesday lunchtime through outoudmusicfestival.com.

The organizers say the fifth annual festival has been “completely redesigned for the new era of improved safety, health and wellness protocols,” with limited capacity and spacing, following recommendations from Metro Public Health and the CDC.

“While this will be one of the biggest live music events in Nashville since the pandemic began,” a press release said, “there will also be tight controls and safety procedures in place to combat the spread of COVID-19.”

OUTLOUD should not be confused with the annual Nashville Pride Festival, which traditionally takes place in June. This year’s event has been postponed to September due to the pandemic.
