Hozier will headline Chepstow Racecourse on Tuesday 9 July 2024 as part of its first-ever Summer Session series.

The Irish singer-songwriter will be joined by special guest’s American singer-songwriter Brittany Howard (Alabama Shakes) and indie rock outfit Lord Huron.

The internationally acclaimed musician is set to captivate audiences with a mesmerising headlining performance at the inaugural Chepstow Summer Sessions.

His distinctive ethereal blend of folk, blues, and rock has earned him a special place in the hearts of music fans worldwide.

Hozier’s breakthrough hit “Take Me to Church” became a global sensation, dominating airwaves and earning him widespread recognition.

In addition to chart-topping songs like “Someone New” and “Nina Cried Power,” Hozier’s extraordinary talents have garnered him a multitude of accolades, including a Grammy Song of the Year nomination and the prestigious Ivor Novello Award for Songwriter of the Year.

Night of sound

Hozier will be supported by Brittany Howard, Alabama Shakes frontwoman-turned-solo star. With nine Grammy Award nominations under her belt, fans can anticipate a night of sound that transcends genres, finding inspiration in rock, soul, funk, and R&B.

Enigmatic indie folk band, Lord Huron, will also join the line-up with their cinematic song storytelling and lush harmonies all the way from Los Angeles, California.

Founded  in 2013 by DF Concerts, Summer Sessions became a much-loved and highly anticipated live music series in Scotland with events taking place in cities including Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Renowned for regularly showcasing a diverse roster of world-leading talent, previous headliners include Eminem, Foo Fighters, Kendrick Lamar, Florence + The Machine and David Guetta.

2024 will now see Summer Sessions expand into England and Wales for the first time, with events in Chepstow, Bedford, Derby, Plymouth, and Southampton – with more locations to follow.
