The Long Road announces day splits and more artists

The Long Road, the UK festival for country, Americana, and roots music, has unveiled the day splits and the third wave of artists for its highly anticipated summer event. Building on the excitement of previous announcements, the festival has detailed the performance schedule for its eclectic lineup. With tickets selling fast, the fifth edition of The Long Road promises to be its biggest yet, set to take place at Stanford Hall in Leicestershire from 23rd to 25th August 2024.

The festival kicks off on Friday with a headlining performance by American country vocal group Chapel Hart. Returning by popular demand after a memorable appearance during Rissi Palmer’s Color Me Country takeover, Chapel Hart will headline the Interstate Stage. The opening night will also feature performances by alt-country band American Aquarium and hip-hop country group Gangstagrass, among others. Additionally, audiences can look forward to sets from folk duo Campbell Jensen and pop-rock artist Gina Larner, ensuring a dynamic start to the weekend.

Saturday promises to be a highlight, with the Rhinestone Stage hosting a UK-exclusive headline show by the legendary Don McLean. Famous for timeless hits like “American Pie” and “Vincent (Starry, Starry Night),” McLean’s evocative storytelling and musical legacy resonate globally. The Saturday lineup is further enriched by Paula Cole and Brittney Spencer, known for her collaborations with Beyoncé. Meanwhile, the Interstate Stage will feature performances by The Red Clay Strays and Colbie Caillat, adding to the day’s diverse musical offerings.

The festival culminates on Sunday with a high-energy performance by country-pop star Russell Dickerson. Known for his electrifying live shows and chart-topping hits, Dickerson will headline the Rhinestone Stage. Joining him is West Texas native Randall King. The Interstate Stage on Sunday will showcase folk-country group Flatland Cavalry and country artist Pokey LaFarge, while Ron Pope, renowned for his viral hit “A Drop in the Ocean,” will lead performances from The Front Porch Stage.

Newly confirmed additions to the lineup include country singer Redferrin, whose song “Jack & Diet Coke” gained significant popularity on Spotify’s US Viral 50 Chart. Redferrin is noted for his collaborations with artists like Florida Georgia Line and Nelly. Also joining the Friday lineup are Georgia songwriter Jonah Kagen, Wood Burnt Red, Oscar Corney, Bailey Tomkinson & the Locals, and Alan Finlan. On Saturday, the festival will welcome Pearl Charles, who blends rock and country, alongside Charlotte Young. Ollie Hawkins has been added to the Sunday lineup.
