The line-up so far features a renowned selection of acts including disco icons Nile Rodgers & CHIC, Canadian rock icon Bryan Adams, acclaimed American jazz, blues and soul singer Gregory Porter, singer-songwriter Olly Murs, British dance-pop artist Becky Hill, indie stalwarts The Charlatans and Johnny Marr, music legend Sir Tom Jones, celebrated singer-songwriter Richard Ashcroft, multi-platinum popstar Anne-Marie, British superstar Paloma Faith and the legendary Sting.

A spokesperson for Forest Live 2024 said: "Nestled amongst the trees in six unique spots across the UK, the shows will take place at Gloucestershire’s Westonbirt Arboretum, Cheshire’s Delamere Forest, North Yorkshire’s Dalby Forest, Sherwood Pines in Nottinghamshire, High Lodge Thetford Forest in Suffolk, and Cannock Chase Forest in Staffordshire.

"Bringing some of biggest names in music to a selection of stunning forest settings across June and July, the concerts will raise money to continue Forestry England’s important conservation work, maintain the nation’s beautiful natural areas and keep planting trees.
