Winstock 2024 Line Up Announced


This morning, it was announced that three-time ACM Entertainer of the Year Jason Aldean and first-time Winstock artist Cole Swindell will headline the 30th anniversary Winstock Country Music Festival, set for Friday-Saturday, June 14-15, 2024, at the festival grounds in Winsted. Best-available tickets and camping are on sale now.

With 27 number one singles, 15 billion streams, and more than 20 million albums sold, Saturday night headliner Jason Aldean is the current reigning ACM Artist of the Decade and an ACM Entertainer of the Year nominee. Since his 2005 debut, Aldean has had more Top 10 songs on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs than any other artist. His 11th studio album, Highway Desperado, will be released Nov. 3.

Friday night will feature a Winstock newcomer in Swindell who, in the 10 years since his debut, has racked up an impressive 12 number one singles as an artist – 13 as a songwriter. The Georgia hitmaker has over 5.2 billion global career streams.

“Cole Swindell is an artist we’ve wanted to have at Winstock for years,” said Winstock Country Music Festival Committee Chairman Dave Danielson. “Even though he’s getting married earlier during the week of Winstock, we’re grateful he’ll be able to celebrate both his new marriage and our 30th anniversary with us.”

Joining Aldean and Swindell will be Jon Pardi, Russell Dickerson, Sara Evans, Tracy Lawrence, Love and Theft, Tigirlily Gold, Neon Union, Rocket Club, Hailey James, and more still to be announced later this year. In addition to the remaining artists, organizers are also planning some fun surprises to commemorate the 30th year of Winstock and celebrate Winstocks of years past.

“It’s hard to believe it’s been 30 years of Winstock,” Danielson said. “It’s amazing to look back at its beginnings and what it’s become today. The Winstock Committee appreciates the entire Winsted community, as well the support of the city, county, township, and local and regional EMS/police and fire who provide coverage and ensure the safety and well-being of our fans. Ultimately we also thank our volunteers and sponsors who, without their support, Winstock wouldn’t be possible.”

Based on the high demand for tickets at this year’s event for 2024, Winstock’s VIP tickets, along with campgrounds A, B, C, and D are sold out. A limited number of reserved seats remain available and are expected to sell quickly.

“We had a record number of orders placed at this year’s festival for our 2024 event,” Danielson said. “We hope those who didn’t get their tickets this year will take advantage of this first chance to get their tickets and camping passes secured for what’s guaranteed to be a great time.”

Tickets and camping are available at or by calling (320) 485-4287, though organizers recommend getting best-available tickets and camping online and only calling if there are questions.
