Lifestyle: The Long Road Festival 2024 Line-Up Announced

One of the UK’s fastest growing festivals, The Long Road, is back this summer boasting its largest capacity yet following a sold out event in 2023. Today they announced the first names for 2024, revealing a fresh crop of the finest country, Americana, roots, rock and folk stars, with over 35 acts so far heading to the heart of the English countryside this August bank holiday weekend.

For those of you who didn't see my blog post from The Long Road Festival 2023, the festival takes place each year at Stanford Hall, Lutterworth (on the borders of Leicestershire and Northamptonshire), it's a 3 day music festival dedicated to all things Country, Americana & Roots. Returning to the picturesque grounds between 23rd to 25th August, this summer's three day showdown of American music and culture immersion is set to see fans and families from all corners converge for the fifth edition of TLR.

What can you expect in 2024?

Leading the charge for this year's lineup is Nashville sensation Russell Dickerson, whose electrifying live performances and chart-topping hits have earned him a dedicated global following. Since bursting onto the scene, Dickerson’s first four singles all rose to No. One consecutively, with all four tracks earning platinum certification or higher. Dickerson just notched his fifth career No. One with “God Gave Me A Girl,” adding to his growing list of chart-topping singles including “Yours" (3X Platinum), "Blue Tacoma” (2X Platinum), "Every Little Thing" (Platinum), and "Love You Like I Used To" (Platinum). Since his breakout track "Yours", Dickerson's signature blend of modern country has been striking a chord and is primed for a headline set to remember on TLR’s Rhinestone mainstage.

In anticipation of the headlining The Long Road this summer, Russell Dickerson said: “Any time I have the chance to tour in the UK, I have the best experience and can’t wait to return. I’m so stoked to not only be returning, but to be headlining the Long Road Festival. It’s gonna be a blast!”. 

With a fresh look for 2024, The Long Road festival continues to cement its status as the ultimate destination for Country and Americana music and culture this side of the Atlantic. The first names revealed for this year's lineup already point to a diverse spectrum of talent, spanning the biggest icons, celebrated songwriters and alternative sounds. 

Leading the Red Dirt renaissance from Lubbock, Texas, Flatland Cavalry bring their distinctive fusion of traditional country with contemporary influences, resonating deeply with themes of rural life, love, and personal introspection. Wyatt Flores, another artist raised on Red Dirt and Oklahoma country influences, carries with him a legion of fans, hooked on hits like 'West of Tulsa' - which has amassed over 180 million global streams - and his altogether earthy and honest storytelling.

Fans can expect to get swept away by the soundscapes of American Aquarium, whilst excitement builds for Chapel Hart, the acclaimed sisters hailing from Poplarville, Mississippi, as they answer the call of popular demand with a triumphant return to headline the opening Friday night of festivities. Expect infectious honky-tonk rhythms brought by the Red Clay Strays and the eagerly anticipated Randall King - the man who's kept the twang alive in country's mainstream, whilst Colbie Caillat's folk-pop charm and Brittney Spencer's Nashville sound mesmerises all. 

Alongside the contemporary indie Americana of Andrew Combs and Emmy Award-Winner Drew Holcomb & the Neighbors, Kristian Bush, previously one half of the CMA and Grammy Award winning super duo Sugarland, Illinois poet Pokey Lafarge has also been enlisted to charm the crowds with his wry humour and roots music sensibilities, in the wake of his incoming ‘Rhumba Country’ album release.
