Overview of Steelstacks during Musikfest

Each summer, Bethlehem comes alive as the tradition of Musikfest® returns to the city. With safety at top priority, following all CDC, state and local health and safety guidelines, Bethlehem Musikfest 2021 will take place August 6-15, 2021. While planning is underway, ArtsQuest is looking for input from self-described Musikfest Super Fans to help create the best possible festival for the entire community. Whatever format is decided, Musikfest will promise 10 days packed of music, food, and plenty of fun for all ages. Stay tuned for the 2021 Musikfest schedule, Musikfest lineup, Musikfest map, and Musikfest tickets info.

History of Musikfest

Founded in 1984 by ArtsQuest, a community-based nonprofit organization, the first Musikfest featured 295 performances on six stages, attracting more than 180,000 people to historic Bethlehem.

Over the past three decades, the event has grown a bit, evolving into the nation’s largest free, non-gated music festival with 500-plus shows on 16 stages over 10 days. Each year more than 900,000 people make their way to the Lehigh Valley and the festival, with their sights set on experiencing all the music, food and fun of this musical extravaganza.
