Kip Moore joins Savannah lineup

SAVANNAH In The Round has bolstered its already packed lineup for this year’s festival, announcing the inclusion of Kip Moore and James Johnston.

Last visiting Australia and New Zealand for his sell-out 2023 headline tour, which included an epic headline performance CMC Rocks, Kip Moore’s southern charm is as smooth as ever.

With fans craving more of the genre-blending songsmith, this highly anticipated return is sure to blow roofs off arenas and theatres across the country.

Kip had a flying start to his career, releasing his debut album Up All Night in 2012.

Hailed as “the best by a new country artist this year” (Taste of Country), the project became an instant success achieving platinum status in the US.

With millions of records sold and more than 2.9 billion streams worldwide across the following decade, Kip released his anticipated fifth studio album, Damn Love in 2023.

Featuring 13 tracks that he co-produced, the album cemented Kip Moore as a country music powerhouse, proving time and again his craftmanship and lyricism.

A truly remarkable performer, Kip Moore is renowned for his signature sound and blistering
live performances.

He achieved a career high last year, when he sold more than 44,000 tickets in South Africa, playing sold out stadiums in Cape Town and Pretoria and opening the door for country music and the debut of the Cape Town Country Music Festival.

Festival Director James Dein said this year’s Savannah In The Round will be a homecoming for country music.

“Kip Moore is no stranger to Queensland, having played the launch party of the Waltzing Matilda Centre in Winton in 2018 and headlining CMC Rocks in 2023, and I look forward to showing him the beauty of the Tropical North – yet another side of this gorgeous state of ours,” Mr Dein said.

“As for James Johnston, Savannah In The Round was his first main-stage festival show
back in 2021, so he’ll forever be a favourite here in North Queensland.”

Kip and James join an already heaving lineup including The Living End, Hoodoo Gurus,
Jon Stevens, The Wolfe Brothers, John Williamson, Troy Cassar Daley, Vika & Linda,
Mahalia Barnes, Brooke McClymont & Adam Eckersley, The Whitlams Black Stump
and more.
