Nelsonville Music Festival has dropped the full artist lineup for its 2024 presentation, with headliners Killer Mike, Courtney Barnet and Thee Sacred Souls leading an eclectic bill of genre-spanning acts. The festival, which will take place at the Snow Fork Event Center in Nelsonville, Ohio over the weekend of July 26-28, is celebrating its 17th annual return this year since its launch in 2005. 

Run the Jewels co-founder and four-time Grammy winner Killer Mike begin the festivities with a headlining set on July 26. The following evening, acclaimed Australian indie rock singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett will assume the spotlight, with San Diego’s R&B revivalists Thee Sacred Souls closing out the weekend on Sunday. These headliners top a bill that includes a vibrant tapestry of acts, including Greenwich Village folk extraordinaire Michael Hurley, genre-bending rising star Indigo De Souza, folk-rock quartet The Felice Brothers, tripped-out garage rockers Frankie and the Witch Fingers and Seun Kuti, son of the great Fela Kuti, alongside his father’s former band, Egypt 80.

Beyond its eclectic array of musical styles, including Afrobeat, folk, punk and much more, Nelsonville Music Festival centers environmental stewardship, with a standard-setting Zero Waste goal resulting in an average diversion of 92% of festival waste from the landfill. Run by the local nonprofit theater Stuart’s Opera House, founded in 1879, the festival commits its proceeds to support the theater’s tuition-free arts education programming. Continuing its commitment to local community-building, Nelsonville Music Festival ensures that attendance is free for festival-goers under 12 and residents of Nelsonville and Buchtel, Ohio. 

Weekend passes, including VIP, parking and camping, are on sale now. Single-day passes will be available at a later date. For more information as it is released, visit
