MUSIKFEST 2021 - Live and In Person!



The largest free admission music festival in the nation returns in-person August 6-15, 2021, with a special preview night on August 5 featuring Darius Rucker.


Musikfest, will take place August 6-15, 2021. This festival will feature headliners, food vendors and free performances on stages spread throughout the city of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

“This time last year, doors to arts and culture venues throughout the world were closing – some of them for good,” Kassie Hilgert, President & CEO of ArtsQuest said. “We had no idea where we would be a year from then, but we knew for certain that nonprofit organizations like ours, especially in the arts world, were going to be one of the hardest hit. After all we’ve gone through together as a community, we are so proud to be partnering with the city of Bethlehem, and all our wonderful volunteers, sponsors and supporters, to put on the Musikfest we all know and love, once again.”
