Railroad Earth has a long history of performing at El Dorado County Fairgrounds in Placerville, California as the host band of the Hangtown Music Festival for its 12-year run ending with the final installment in 2022. The band will return to the historic site to headline the second annual The Golden Road Gathering music festival, which will be held from May 17 – 19, 2024.

Fruition, Moontricks, The Nth Power, Steve Poltz and TV Broken 3rd Eye Open featuring Katie Skene join RRE at the top of the initial 2024 Golden Road Gathering lineup. Other acts set to play at the three-day event include Little Hurricane, Gold Souls and Red Dirt Ruckus. Additional artist announcements, with two more headliners among them, will be announced soon.


The inaugural family-friendly music festival took place this past May at El Dorado County Fairgrounds. Organizers promise more of what went down earlier this year including “an array of artist offerings, craft vending and delectable food options to cater to every taste” in addition to an “extraordinary musical experience.”

“We are thrilled to bring Golden Road Gathering back for its second year, building on the success and positive energy of our inaugural festival,” stated Golden Road Gathering Founder Ryan Kronenberg. “With Railroad Earth headlining on one night it’s sure to be a celebration of music, community, and the beautiful Placerville landscape.”

Three-Day Passes, both GA and VIP, are on sale now. Grab Golden Road Gathering tickets via the festival’s website. Click below for the initial Golden Road Gathering 2024 lineup.
