Hozier Headlines High Water Fest 2024

Hozier is headlining High Water Fest in 2024. The lineup also includes Noah Kahan and Grace Potters.

The Charleston, South Carolina, music festival takes place next year from April 20th to the 21st. According to the official website, the festival is curated by Charleston native band Shovels and Rope. It also “brings musicians from all over the world to the beautiful Riverfront of North Charleston, creating a musical oasis. With two alternating stages, you’ll be able to catch all your favorite bands and discover new ones too!”

The website adds, “High Water is a place for fun, but also relaxation. You’ll be welcomed by old Oak Trees draped in Spanish Moss. Next, you can take in your favorite artist while enjoying Riverfront Park’s panoramic views of the Cooper River.”

Additionally, “In between sets, stroll through The Market, featuring local craft vendors selling everything from handmade jewelry and leather goods to t-shirts that save the environment, as well as festival and artist merch. The Market hugs the Riverfront providing a beautiful backdrop for all your shopping adventures!”

Find tickets for the High Water Fest on their website.

While the festival isn’t until 2024, 2023 has been a huge year for Hozier. In August, the singer-songwriter put out his third studio album, Unreal Earth. 2023 also marks the ten-year anniversary of his EP Take Me to Church. The EP contains the eponymous hit single that made the Irish artist a household name in modern-day folk rock.

It will be months before Hozier heads to South Carolina, but in 2023 he played a gig in Raleigh, North Carolina which is gaining traction on social media.

In between songs, he said, “There’s an Irish revolutionary by the name of James Connolly who wrote ‘No revolution is ever complete without its poetical expression,’ and Mavis Staples, to me, embodies the poetical expression of a revolution of love, a revolution of kindness, and an ongoing revolution towards a better world for all of us, and I wanted to write this song to remind myself that in this world, historically, a lot of good things have not come easy, and they come with a push. But it’s artists like Mavis Staples that remind us of how important it is to push for a better world, to push for that revolution of love. And we have to celebrate artists like that. And so, it was an honor to record the vocals for this song called ‘Nina Cried Power.'”
