Railbird Music Festival, a summer music festival in Lexington, announced its 2023 lineup today.

Festival officials decided that Railbird would “take a pause” this summer due to concerns from guests about long lines and insufficient water stations, among other things.

In May, organizers announced that the festival would return in 2023, albeit in a new location: rather than the previous venue, Keeneland, this year's Railbird will play at The Infield at Red Mile on Saturday, June 3, and Sunday, June 4.

Organizers also addressed guest concerns in an Instagram post a few weeks ago, which promised that next year’s festival will have additional water stations, more bar staff, shaded areas and a policy that would allow guests to bring in their own water bottles.

Here’s the full lineup for 2023:


  • Zach Bryan
  • Weezer
