Stage and crowd at Godiva Festival 2023

Godiva Festival is set to make a triumphant return in 2024 as organisers reveal the awaited dates.

The festival will take place over three days in the summer from Friday 5 – Sunday 7 July 2024. 

The event promises three days of unrivalled music, entertainment and family-friendly fun in the city’s War Memorial Park. 

Renowned for showcasing a diverse line-up of top-tier musical acts alongside the best of Coventry's local talent, Godiva Festival has become a staple in the city's event calendar.  

Past line-ups have featured unforgettable performances from big name artists such as Rudimental, Ella Eyre, Tom Grennan and The Enemy. 

Festival organisers are hard at work curating a star-studded line-up with exciting attractions to make the 25th Godiva Festival bigger and better than ever before.  

Tickets are set to go on sale in March next year. Details about ticket prices and the eagerly awaited line-up will be unveiled in the coming months, ensuring festival goers have time to plan for what promises to be a fantastic weekend. 

Councillor Abdul Salam Khan, Deputy Leader of Coventry City Council and Cabinet Member for Events, said: “I'm delighted to announce that Godiva Festival will be returning in 2024 and will be taking place in July. 

"The city has a deep connection with the event and reaching the 25th Godiva Festival is a huge milestone for Coventry. We will bring something for all ages and music tastes once again in 2024. We want our 25th Godiva Festival to be a truly unforgettable event. 

“As we eagerly anticipate the festival, it's important to acknowledge the economic benefits it brings to Coventry, particularly in terms of tourism. 

“We also recognise the financial pressures faced by our attendees and we are mindful of the need for an affordable yet spectacular event. 

"The festival continues to grow and is of course fuelled by the incredible support and love from Coventrians and those who travel to the festival alike. It remains a pivotal part of our city's cultural landscape and I hope both residents and visitors to the city see that it reflects the spirit of Coventry. 

“We will be back in the new year with more information on ticket prices and of course to start sharing some of our fabulous line-up.” 

Free Radio and Greatest Hits Radio will return as the official media partner for next year’s Godiva Festival.
