Mile 0 Fest in Key West, Florida has now gone from the scrappy newcomer in the Texas/Red Dirt music realm to one of the festivals annually that all the artists want to play, and every fan wants to attend. Seeing your favorite music in paradise just makes for more memorable moments.
For the 2024 installment scheduled on January 23rd to 27th, many of the Mile 0 Fest mainstays like The Randy Rogers Band, Wade Bowen, Cody Canada and the Departed, and Shane Smith and the Saints return, as does the “Queen of Mile 0 Fest” Jamie Lin Wilson, along with the Mile 0 Fest House Band Mike and the Moonpies.
Newcomers to the 2024 roster include the Josh Abbott Band, who surprisingly are making their first appearance, punk country pioneers the Vandoliers who are sure to set the stage on fire, as well as fast-rising Texas soulful songwriter and performer Tanner Usrey, and Oklahoma songwriter Lance Roark. Crowd favorites The Steel Woods, Kaitlin Butts, and The Red Clay Strays will also be making their return.
More names will be added to the 2024 Mile 0 Fest roster closer to the event.
Mile 0 Fest is not easy to get to and not cheap to stay at. But it’s a world away from any other musical experience, with Key West and everything it has to offer being one of the main attractions. Listening to your favorite singer/songwriter on the Southernmost Beach in the United States, or your favorite band on the famous Sunset Pier, or taking in the nightly afterparty collaborations when who knows what will happen is juice that is well worth the squeeze.
