Cheltenham music festival announces “sparkling” 2024

Cheltenham Music Festival has announced a sparkling line-up for its seventy-ninth year.
From Saturday 6 July to Saturday 13 July, the festival will host some of the most exciting names of today’s classical music world.

The programme builds on the festival’s longstanding reputation as one of the UK’s premier platforms for new work, alongside a plethora of older gems both to be found and rediscovered.

Highlights for 2024 include a number of concerts celebrating the 150th anniversary of Gustav Holst, performances by star pianist Clare Hammond and celebrated baritone Roderick Williams, and brand-new works by Laura Cannell, Sun Keting and Cameron Biles-Liddell.

With venues including the festival’s storied Regency mainstay, Pittville Pump Room, the Edwardian grandeur of Cheltenham Town Hall and the medieval splendour of Gloucester Cathedral, festivalgoers will be spoiled for choice when it comes to experiencing the best of classical music in some of the country’s most beautiful settings.

Adventuring beyond the usual concert hall setting, a free ‘… around town’ series of events will visit the bars, cafes and restaurants of Cheltenham itself, and the return of the festival’s trademark Mixtape event allows listeners to explore a different way of enjoying classical music. You are invited to sit back, relax, and enjoy the mix of relaxing, rule-free classical music. A strong partnership with the BBC and its New Generation Artists scheme cements Cheltenham Music Festival’s 2024 programme as a broad and inspiring mix of national note.

The co-CEO of the festival’s parent charity, Cheltenham Festivals, is Ian George. “This season has been intentionally designed in this context to fulfil our mission and vision to provide a platform for the best, most exciting musicians performing and composing today – and to position the festival for a strong and expanding future. We’re excited to welcome everyone to Cheltenham this July!”

Tickets are on sale from 28 March. Visit www.cheltenhamfestivals.com/music
