The 2021 Hinterland Music Festival has officially been announced to take place from Aug. 6 through Aug. 8 at the Avenue of the Saints Amphitheater in St. Charles, Iowa.

Hinterland Music Festival is a multiday, outdoor festival that centers around the fun of the outdoors, camping, art vendors and, of course, music. After first being held in St. Charles, Iowa, in 2015, the festival has become an annual event for Iowans and out-of-state guests all around to enjoy.

Due to the cancellation of the 2020 Hinterland Music Festival, many of the previously scheduled music guests will finally be making their appearance at the 2021 festival. These guests include Leon Bridges, Tyler Childers, Old Crow Medicine Show, Khruangbin and Tanya Tucker. 

New guests who will make their debut at the Hinterland Music Festival include The Avett Brothers, CAAMP, Black Pumas, The Marcus King Band and Elle King.

The 2021 Hinterland Music Festival will follow strict guidelines to ensure the safety of all attendees. Prospective guests can check out their health guidelines on the Hinterland Music Festival website.

Highlights from the health and safety guidelines for the festival include a limited number of allowed guests, an increase in bathrooms and food vendors to reduce the number of people in lines, a reduction in camping capacity, increased camping grounds for social distancing and an additional entrance and exit site to help space out guests. Masks will also be required for all guests and workers of the festival.
