Healing Appalachia has unveiled the lineup for its 2024 festival, returning to the grounds of Lewisburg, W.Va.’s State Fair of West Virginia at the summer’s end. From September 19 through 21, Healing Appalachia will bring on sets from some of the biggest names in country, folk, roots rock, jam and more, all in service of recovery and harm reduction for communities facing opioid addiction. Leading the stacked bill of 24 acts is Tyler Childers, who has helmed the festival’s bill since its inaugural staging in 2018.

Childers, reared in Kentucky, has annually reaffirmed his commitment to fighting addiction from personal experience with soul-stirring headline sets. Beyond the top billing, the fifth annual Healing Appalachia will feature contributions from other icons like My Morning Jacket, Sierra Ferrell, Shooter Jennings and Benjamin Todd & Lost Dog Street Band; further fan-favorite acts include Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, S.G. Goodman, Hiss Golden Messenger, Sierra Hull, Dan Reeder, Oliver Wood Trio and many more.

Since its foundation, Healing Appalachia has been the crowning accomplishment in the Hope in the Hills organization’s mission “to produce events that help connect and grow communities of recovery and healing in Appalachia,” per the organization’s site. After the 2023 presentation, which saw the festival’s first-ever three-day program, Hope in the Hills distributed over $450,000 to communities around the region “to combat opioid addiction through a wide array of projects and programs from youth prevention, healthy lifestyles and wellness to recovery houses and recovery to work.” 97 cents of every dollar made from the festival is invested back to the Appalachian community.

Tickets for this year’s Healing Appalachia will become available on Tuesday, July 9 at 10 a.m. ET. Find more information about Healing Appalachia and this year’s festival at https://healingappalachia.org/.
