Earlier this year, Highways Festival 2023 was an absolute triumph.

Headlined by Kip Moore, the one-day event brought London’s Royal Albert Hall to its knees with almost endless country music across one of summer’s hottest days.

The star of the show himself told us all about how he treasured the opportunity to play the iconic British festival.

And rising star Morgan Wade opened up about her second album woes ahead of its release, as well.

Now, Highways Festival 2024 is going to be bigger and better than ever.

The new edition of the concert event is now taking place across two days – Friday, May 17, 2024 and Saturday, May 18, 2024 – at its rightful home in London’s Royal Albert Hall.

The first batch of artists, bands, and musicians have now been revealed by organisers Live Nation, who announced Brett Young, The War & Treaty, Josh Ross and many more are hitting the stage next summer.

“The Hall has a proud history promoting Country and Americana in the UK, from Johnny Cash to Kacey Musgraves” – Royal Albert Hall’s Matthew Todd, Director of Programming and Engagement

Live Nation’s Vice President of Touring, Anna-Sophie Mertens said of the festival’s return: “We are back! After a hugely successful inaugural edition, it fills me with great pride to bring to life Highways Festival for its second year alongside our partners at the Royal Albert Hall. And this time even bigger and better with two days of programming across the Country and Americana genre.”

The Royal Albert Hall’s Director of Programming and Engagement Matthew Todd, added: “We’re thrilled to welcome back Highways for a second year, for two days across our 153-year-old building. The Hall has a proud history promoting Country and Americana in the UK, from Johnny Cash to Kacey Musgraves, but what makes Highways especially exciting is the range of music for the audience, from family events and songwriting sessions in our smaller spaces to the incredible headline artists that light up the auditorium.”

Tickets for the incredible two-day event are out right now, but you can get presale access before anyone else right now:
