Noah Kahan, Eric Church to Headline 2024 Sing Out Loud Festival


The performer lineup for 2024’s edition of the Sing Out Loud Festival in St. Augustine has been announced by the organizers. Eleven artists have been confirmed to perform in the festival’s Live Wildly Showcase at Francis Field, headlined by country music star Eric Church and folk-pop newcomer Noah Kahan.

The event is slated to take place on September 21st and 22nd this year, while tickets will be going on sale on Friday, March 29th at 10:00 am. Three tiers of tickets will be sold: single-day and two-day general admission, general admission plus, and platinum. The biggest names will be split halfway, with each of the two heaviest hitters taking the top slot in back-to-back days and the other headliners performing in the buildup.

The first day of the festival, held on Saturday, September 21st, will have Church headlining, joined by Ryan Bingham with the Texas Gentlemen, Molly Tuttle & Golden Highway, the Breeders, Tré Burt, and more artists yet to be announced. Sunday, September 22nd will have Kahan capping things off, preceded by Norah Jones, Marcus King, Sierra Ferrell, Kevin Morby, and Nat & Alex Wolff.

The highlight of the lineup for many country music fans will be Church, who’s been one of the biggest names in the genre since he emerged in the 2000’s. Church has won six Academy of Country Music Awards and four Country Music Association Awards, and has been nominated for ten Grammy Awards. Two of his albums have reached #1 on the Billboard 200 album chart.

The younger attendees may gravitate more toward Kahan, who’s experienced a meteoric rise to popularity since the start of last year. His breakthrough album, ‘Stick Season’, reached #2 in the United States and landed him nominations for a Grammy Award, Billboard Music Award, and People’s Choice Award among others. Fueling his popularity further has been several high-profile collaborations with artists such as Post Malone, Hozier, Kacey Musgraves, and Brandi Carlile among others.

The rest of the robust lineup provides ample compliment to Church and Kahan, especially in the form of Norah Jones. Seemingly big enough to occupy a headlining spot in most festivals in her own right, Jones was among the most popular singer-songwriters of the 00’s decade.

In addition to the heavy-hitters at Francis Field, Sing Out Loud will facilitate performances by smaller, local artists at a variety of venues around St. Augustine. Many of these are available to attend for lower or no admission fee, giving the entirety of the city and surrounding area the chance to take in parts of the festival.
