The full artist lineup for the second annual Voices of America Country Music Fest, which will return to West Chester this summer, has been announced.

“The Further Concepts team is excited to have the festival back for the second year. We are looking forward to hosting some of the biggest names not only in country music, but the music industry as a whole. Although music is the spotlight of the festival, we are also partnering with national and local brands, charities, and food vendors for all four days to elevate the experience for VOACMF fans. A ... Fans can expect many more exciting announcements to come. From start to finish, it is an event you don’t want to miss,” said Carly Adams, marketing manager for the event.

The four-day festival will take place Aug. 8-11 across the National Voice of America Museum of Broadcasting and Voice of America MetroPark grounds.

Concertgoers will experience a gathering of Country music’s biggest names with four days of live performances.

Announced Friday, the line-up includes Brett Young, Lauren Alaina, Larry Fleet, Michael Ray, Chase Matthew, Brian Kelley, Priscilla Block, Maddie & Tae, and Kylie Morgan among the dozens of country music artists joining previously announced all-star headliners Jason Aldean, Keith Urban, Sam Hunt and Ernest, with bonus artists to be announced in the coming months.

“We are really excited about the 2024 lineup. We wanted to make sure we put together something that fans would want to see,” said Tyler Wogenstahl, president of Further Concepts and Investors. “Our goal is to continue to improve the experience year over year. We love our Cincinnati fan base, and we have a few big surprises for them that are yet to be announced.”

Ticket prices will increase on Fri., March 1. All passes will be delivered in the form of a festival wristband and those will be mailed out starting in July.

The festival will also be filmed and featured as a full episode on one of CMT’s most-watched shows, “Hot 20 Countdown.” Viewers will be able to watch exclusive interviews and performances from the festival grounds.

Onsite, festival goers will experience more than 24 different food trucks, food vendors, concessionaires, and partner activations. One such activation will be the “Whiskey Jam Stage,” which will feature up-and-coming country artists as part of VOACMF’s new partnership with Nashville’s Whiskey Jam.

“We cannot wait to bring the artists and spirit of Whiskey Jam up to Ohio for the Voices of America festival this summer,” said Ward Guenther, Whiskey Jam co-founder and owner. “Country music is at one of its most exciting times in history, with so much focus on the promising up-and-coming talent. Whiskey Jam’s unique position in Nashville enables us to see these artists very early in their journey, so we’ll be bringing the absolute best & brightest to join the party at VOA.”

Giving back to the community continues to be a major priority for VOACMF as well. Charitable partnerships this year include PARACHUTE Butler County Casa, The Dragonfly Foundation, and Animal Friends Humane Society, with more to be announced.
