The 34th Old Settler's Music Festival
Thursday – Sunday
October 21 – 24, 2021
Grab your festival garb and your camping gear. Hop on a plane, train, or automobile — however you can — to get to the most unique, magical music celebration in Central Texas. Four days of Music, Camping, Community, and Connection. There’s nothing like it. With 145 acres of rolling hills, meadows, and tree-covered campgrounds, the festival grounds offers plenty of room to spread out. Discover new artists, make lasting friendships, check out the pickin’ circles, camp under the stars, and make memories you will cherish forever.
Tickets purchased for the 2020 festival will be honored for the October 2021 festival. Bring your 2020 tickets to the Festival Box Office in exchange for your festival and camping wristbands. If you are unable to attend, we’ve partnered with LYTE Ticket Exchange to provide a safe and secure way for you to sell your tickets.
Health and Safety Update
With the 2021 Old Settler’s Music Festival in sight, our team is working hard to provide an enjoyable experience in a controlled and safe environment. The safety of our Old Settler’s family ― volunteers, fest-goers, artists, vendors, sponsors, staff, contractors ― is paramount. To that end, we are mindful of the rapidly changing landscape and are prepared to adjust as necessary.
At this year’s festival, anyone 12 years of age or older must show proof of being fully vaccinated for COVID-19 at least 2 weeks prior to entering the festival grounds, or must show a printed copy of a negative COVID-19 test within 48 hours of entry. Any attendee under the age of 12 must wear a mask and be accompanied by either a vaccinated adult, or an adult who shows proof of receiving a negative COVID-19 test within 48 hours of entry. Old Settler’s will not have rapid COVID-19 testing onsite.
For those that choose to be vaccinated and prefer to use the two-vaccination process (Moderna or Pfizer), you must receive your first shot no later than September 9, 2021, to allow a month between the first and second shot.
Attendees should be respectful of those who choose to wear a mask and/or maintain physical distancing from others. We are extremely fortunate to have 145 acres of beautiful rolling meadows and tree-covered campgrounds, making it possible for us to increase the festival arena footprint to ensure there is plenty of room to spread out.
Staff, volunteers, and vendors that interact with ticket holders and artists will be required to wear a mask, and masks must be worn by anyone in an enclosed space within the venue or backstage area.
Our intention is not to impose a specific point of view or set of values on anyone, but rather to enable music fans to enjoy live music and our vibrant community.
