Wildwood Revival, a thoughtfully curated and intimate gathering and festival, has made good on its pledge to return to Cloverleaf Farm with the release of its first round of artists for the seventh installation, October 8 - 10, 2021. Embodying the magic of a Deep South setting out into the wildwood while celebrating Athens’ storied music scene, this year’s lineup will have hands counting the days until they can return to the Farm. Wildwood Revival’s exploration into music, food, and friendship, this coveted festival is a little bit country, a little bit rock n’ roll, and everything in between.
With tickets on sale now, the initial lineup for 2021 has been released, and it is the most exciting to date. This year's performers will keep fans guessing and dancing from Country, Blues, and early Jazz to Gospel, Soul, Rock n' Roll, and beyond. Featured performers include Jenny Lewis; Sharon Van Etten; St. Paul & the Broken Bones; Hiss Golden Messenger; John Moreland; White Denim; The Bones of J.R. Jones; Tré Burt; Elizabeth Cook; Packway Handle Band; Early James; Suzanne Santo, and The Pink Stones. Fans can catch performances at the Pecan Grove as well as inside the farm’s open-air barn. Beyond the stage lights, there are late-night picking sessions around the campfire where the best stories are often sung.
The festival also features a dynamic artisan market with vintage clothing, antiques, printmakers, woodworkers, 1800’s-era tintype photography, leather makers, handmade crafts and more. Celebrating what’s old is new again, Wildwood Revival embraces its history as a cultural revival; making it a true antithesis to what people have come to think of festivals. Around the grounds, festival goers can experience great food, cold craft beers from Creature Comforts Brewing Co., and meals made with local produce. In addition, this is a plastic-free experience with no plastic single use cups or bottled waters, with YETI offering festival goers stylish drink ware options. All the water is filtered, cold and free. Camping is encouraged for the full experience, but if guests prefer a king bed and AC to a shady patch of grass, there are plenty of lodging options in nearby Athens.

VIP tickets include access to a 7,000- square foot historic mansion; featuring chef-driven catered meals, multiple bars, and lounges with craft cocktails; Creature Comforts Beer and wine, private restrooms, outdoor lounges, experiential programming and entertainment, and all food and beverage options.
