SAINT LOUIS, MO — St. Louis's largest music festival opens offline to the public this August at Chesterfield Amphitheater.

The St. Louis Open Highway Music Festival will be held for four days from August 5 to August 8. The festival is celebrating its tenth anniversary this summer and will feature some of the biggest names in Rock, Americana, Country, and Indie Music—such as Old Crow Medicine Show, Marcus King Band, Watchhouse (formerly known as Mandolin Orange), Whitey Morgan and more.

The festival will feature three large stages in the amphitheater area. On August 5 - 6, gates will open and the show will start at 6 p.m. While August 7 - 8 ticket holders can enter the venue at 12 p.m., shows do not officially start until an hour later. Full festival passes are sold at $141 while daily tickets are sold at $41. Patrons will be able to donate $1 to the St. Louis area Food Bank with every ticket purchase, essentially supporting a lot of people struggling with food insecurity.

True to St. Louis's spirit, the event will also feature some of the most promising local artists and local restaurants that host the most delicious food and refreshing drinks.

If you’re concerned about COVID-19 safety protocols, founder John Henry reassures us that the festival will provide all patrons entering a healthy environment. Masks will be mandatory and all patrons will have their temperatures checked upon entry. The festival will utilize the latest UVC (ultraviolet sterilization) technology to further strengthen health protocols. “Our primary focus is to bring a safe and memorable experience to the region with some of the most exciting artists touring today,” he says.

You can purchase tickets at the event website and contact for more information.
