Alabama is set to hold June Jam XVIII in Fort Payne, Alabama at the VFW Fairgrounds on June 1. The lineup of talent for the 2024 festival will be announced in the coming months.
The June Jam was resurrected last summer following a 16-year hiatus by Alabama co-founders Randy Owen and Teddy Gentry, and drew nearly 11,000 fans to Fort Payne and raising hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Tickets for the festival, which benefits charities throughout the state of Alabama, go on sale this Friday, Dec. 1 via Ticketmaster. Pre-sales are available tomorrow, (Nov. 28) at 10 a.m. CT.
“What a great way to help raise money for many charities and those in need and at the same time, having a great party in a field with our guest artists and fans,” says Gentry. “Come join us.”
The first June Jam benefit concert took place in 1982 and continued annually for 16 years, making it one of the biggest country events in the nation. Previous performers include Garth Brooks, Charlie Daniels, Alan Jackson, The Judds, Tim McGraw, Toby Keith, Wayne Newton, Dolly Parton, Trisha Yearwood, Charley Pride, Willie Nelson and many more. Collectively, the past 17 June Jam events have raised over $20 million for the state of Alabama and the June Jam Foundation, which donates to those in need across the state, including disaster relief.
