Epic concerts for 2024 are being scheduled for major venues in Fayetteville and Fort Smith.

Also coming early next year is the Metalcore Dropouts tour with Fit for a King and The Devil Wears Prada in January followed by The Dead South in February. Australian rockers King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard will be there in the fall.
Down in Fort Smith, Tracy Byrd performs on Feb. 9 and Marty Stuart will play Feb. 22 with his band, the Fabulous Superlatives, at Temple Live. Also coming up in the former Masonic temple are Shenandoah, a special 50th anniversary show for Jim Croce performed by his son A.J. Croce and Creed Fisher, in May.
On the festival side of 2024, FreshGrass announced that Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, Trampled by Turtles, Aoife O'Donovan, Alison Brown, Ruthie Foster, S.G. Goodman and others will perform May 17-18 at the Momentary in Bentonville. Up in Eureka Springs, Opal Agafia announced earlier this year the lineup for her Ozark Mountain Soul Festival with The Del McCoury Band, North Mississippi Allstars, Town Mountain, Kyle Tuttle, Melissa Carper and so many more at The Farm in Eureka Springs.
