There are now many, many festivals representing independent country and roots music all around the United States. There are festivals with flashier lineups, bigger stages, extended schedules, and luxury getaway packages to cater to the power elite.
But that is not what the Laurel Cove Music Festival in Pineville, Kentucky is all about. Attendees from previous years walk away from Pineville talking about the community they found, the camaraderie they shared with their fellow attendees, the intimacy of the performances, the opportunities to discover their next favorite artist, and of course the music that is expertly curated resulting in lifelong memories.
So much of the roots music revolution is being fed by artists from Kentucky and Virginia, so why not go directly to the source? Specializing in Appalachian roots music and those inspired by it, the Laurel Cove Music Festival has just announced their 2024 lineup, led by two surging performers in Wyatt Flores and The Red Clay Strays.
Also performing will be artist touted heavily here at Saving Country Music including Pony Bradshaw, John R. Miller, Kat Hasty, Drayton Farley, and up-and-comers Taylor Hunnicutt, Miles Miller, and Canada’s Noeline Hofmann.
Similar to the patrons, the performers also prefer to play the Laurel Cove Music Festival compared to other festivals. The atmosphere in Pineville fosters collaboration, resulting in once-in-a-lifetime experiences to take away.
Started in 2019 by Main Street Pineville, Bell County Tourism, and the Pine Mountain State Resort Park, Laurel Cove has quickly become one of the most coveted festivals in the country. Primary performances transpire on the Laurel Cove Amphitheater, which seats just shy of 1,000.
