Hosting world-famous musicians in a unique woodland setting, Forest Live is coming to Westonbirt, The National Arboretum with gigs from Thursday 4 to Friday 12 July 2024.

Gloucestershire music fans can experience even more live music at this year's event, with five concerts on the bill compared to last year's three — and the income from ticket sales helping to support the nation's forests for generations to come.

Top selling jazz artist and Cheltenham Jazz Festival artistic curator, Gregory Porter, opens the festival with a soulful performance on Thursday 4 July; followed by pop megastar and Gen Z role model, Anne-Marie, on Friday 5 July; with Irish family band, The Corrs, bringing their unique blend of pop rock and Celtic music to Westonbirt on Saturday 6 July 2024.

Rounding off four days of back-to-back Forest Live concerts, Van Morrison takes to the stage on Sunday 7 July, with a performance that will have you up and dancing; with the legendary Nile Rodgers & CHIC bringing the festival to a close the following week on Friday 12 July 2024 — supported by 'Murder on the Dancefloor' sensation Sophie Ellis-Bextor, no less! 

Tickets are still available for all five gigs — as well as four show festival tickets, which provide access to the first four concerts at Westonbirt Arboretum.

Or opt for The Glade VIP package for access to a private bar, premium food options and posh toilets, all in a VIP area right at the front of the stage — promising the very best view for your selected gig!

Parking may be limited on the day, so it's recommended to book in advance to secure your space.
