The Long Road Festival will make its return to Stanford Hall, Leicestershire, UK from the 25 - 27 August 2023.
Super Early Bird tickets are on sale now for a very limited period of time.
Speaking about the success of 2022's festival, The Long Road’s Creative Director Baylen Leonard said… "We were overwhelmed with the reaction to TLR22, our biggest and best yet! From our new stages to the old favourites, all of them packed with smiling faces in the sunshine. Artists joining other artists on stage for unplanned one-off moments, artists getting stuck in with the audience to watch, cheer on, and dance to other acts, made it a truly special 3 days. The weekend was filled with that magical synergy that only happens when everyone gathers with the common goal of a good time. A big heartfelt thank you to all the festival goers and artists, you make TLR what it is and prove that TLR is for everyone! Already counting down the days till we can do it all again!"
Here, we'll have all the up-to-date news on line-up announcements, the latest ticket and festival pass details, and any further exciting info and details for the 2023 edition.
The Long Road held an amazing event in August 2022, presenting some fantastic sets from The Cadillac Three, Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives, Allison Russell, Miko Marks, Brandy Clark, Gretchen Peters, Sarah Shook and the Disarmers, LOCASH, Lindsay Ell and many more.
The Friday of the festival saw headliner Drake White deliver one of the sets of the year on the Interstate stage. With an uncompromising and rapturous performance, White and his band took the audience on a journey of unwavering highs and rock bottom lows, making us cheer and cry in equal measure.
Before Drake, Priscilla Block also delivered a landmark set on the Interstate Stage. She cemented herself as the country star to watch, as she worked through her album Welcome To The Block Party with sass and badassness. If Taylor Swift and Avril Lavigne were to meet up in a bar to have a beer and shoot the shit, Priscilla would be the one to make a song out of it.
The Saturday was a party from start to finish. With Chris Young unfortunately having to cancel his headline set, Marty Stuart and His Fabolous Superlatives stepped up to the plate and smashed it out of the park with a near two-and-a-half hour set that encompassed five decades of country, surf and folk music.
Rissi Palmer's Color Me Country Takeover Stage at The Front Porch offered a wondrous and celebratory evening of music that felt like a momentous moment for the artists involved and country music as a whole. Palmer, Miko Marks and Madeline Edwards delivered stunning sets that saw the crowd lap it up, dancing down the front throughout each of their sets.
The final day of the festival came by too fast but was still a fantastic day of live music and unity. For their first headline UK festival set, The Cadillac Three delivered a southern rock party, full of meaty riffs that had the crowd in awe.
Lindsay Ell also delivered the finest of solos country music can offer, in a set that encompasses both her incredible instrumental talent and wide-reaching songwriting style.
To top it off, Locash took us to the beach and back with a joyous, sunshine-filled set. Whether it was with their hot new single 'Beach Boys' or their smash hit '... One Big Country Song', the duo were given a rousing ovation by the huge main stage crowd.
