*The dates for Sleeping in the Woods Festival 2024 are yet to be confirmed - May 17-18 are speculative dates.
The inaugural Sleeping in the Woods festival was lauded by attendees, artists and critics alike, so we're certainly hoping the intimate showcase will be returning for a second instalment in 2024.
The songwriting extravaganza was hosted by fast-emerging alt-country artist, Nicholas Jamerson, with a stellar array of performers taking the stage across the two-day event.
Festival-goers were able to witness sets from the likes of Jim Lauderdale, who also hosted a special songwriting masterclass, as well as Scott T. Smith, Brit Taylor, Jordan Allen, Emily Jamerson, Don Rogers, Bella White, Katie Toupin and Grayson Jenkins.
Here, we'll have all the up-to-date news on line-up announcements, confirmation of weekend dates and all the latest ticket and festival pass details for 2024.
Ahead of the festival, Sleeping in the Woods was billed as “A weekend in the woods celebrating the mystical alchemy of songwriting” - and it's safe to say it delivered on its promise.
Songwriting and storytelling magic was at the heart of the evocative occasion, with the serene forest setting of Lake Cumberland, Kentucky serving as the perfect backdrop for two days of compelling country, Americana, folk and roots music.
Proceeds from the event were directed towards Troublesome Creek Stringed Instruments Company, which was founded to help those who have previously struggled with substance abuse disorders with their recovery, through a variety of artistic projects.
