In a few days, Cow Island Live Music Festival will kick off its sixth year under the oaks on Friday, November 12, 2021.

Typically the outdoor festival is a Saturday-only event, but due to the popularity of the outdoor camping option, festival-goers wanted to extend their time in the country setting, according to event organizers. So, this year, campers can set up Friday and stay until Sunday.

Friday night the gates open at 5:30 pm and live music kicks off at 6:00 pm with Ben & Grace Wall.

The festival's opening night local band lineup includes Eagle Street at 6:30 pm, Dyer County at 7:45 pm, and Richard Revue at 9:00 pm.

Friday festival-goers will get to enjoy concessions provided by 3 Bros Cooking and complimentary breakfast on Saturday morning provided by Village Deaux.

Saturday gates open at noon, and live music starts at 12:30 pm with the first of eight acts playing throughout the day and night. Musicians in the line-up are locals as well as touring acts from Texas and Nashville. This year touts two headlining acts-DG & The Freetown Sound on stage at 8:00 pm & Mike McLeod Dean at 9:30 pm.

For those that can't attend, the Saturday performances will be live-streamed through Horizon South Media's YouTube channel.
