High Tide Music & Arts Festival Coming Back to Charleston for Third Year



Press Release

High Tide is thrilled to announce its third year hosting High Tide Music & Arts Festival that will take place the weekend of Saturday, June 1, 2024 at beautiful Riverfront Park in North Charleston. 

The adults-only (21+) event is a boutique music and lifestyle experience curated around Charleston’s high-end lifestyle with the beauty of the Lowcountry as its backdrop. The one-day festival will feature two stages with over 25 DJs, including international headliners and some of the region’s best underground and emerging acts. High Tide will also host a full itinerary of events throughout the weekend, so attendees can experience the best Charleston has to offer, day and night, land and sea.

The festival is curated for stylish young professionals to experience the best of what Charleston culture has to offer in music, arts, fashion and culinary scenes. High Tide’s mission is to produce events where attendees make meaningful memories with their friends that last a lifetime. The organizers, a team of  experienced event producers and music lovers from across the Carolinas, look forward to creating a home for High Tide in Charleston for years to come.

“The feedback has been overwhelmingly supportive,” Co-Founder Edward Holt notes. “We are as independent of a music festival as you can get and to see how far we have come with Charleston is really awesome to see. We have taken the last six months going over the data through our partnership with the College of Charleston and we think year three is going to be the year that sets us apart and solidifies us as one of the premiere events of the city. Between the artists we are booking to the satellite events around the city; this year will be much much bigger.”

While the music will take center stage, the High Tide City Market and the curated Food & Beverage Garden will feature a collection of regional artisans, fashion designers, jewelry makers, chefs, live muralists, photo backdrops, interactive activities, and much more for all guests to explore.

VIP guests will have front row access to the main stage, private bars, and luxe restrooms, plus other perks. Super VIP guests will enjoy an exclusive, shaded, raised lounge area featuring private table service, a locally-curated, top-shelf beverage garden, along with additional amenities.

With coastal Carolina as the backdrop and close to the heart of the High Tide team, High Tide will keep sustainability at the forefront of all festival operations and activities. This includes onsite programs, strategic partnerships, and initiatives with like-minded organizations to ensure the festival and its attendees are doing all they can to protect the natural landscape and reduce the event’s environmental footprint. High Tide is aiming to be plastic-free and carbon-neutral, with a focus on recyclables and compostables, setting it apart from other live events.

“Edward and I grew up in and around the water so keeping the ocean and waterways clean has been at the heart of what we do” Co-Founder Nick Randise remarks. “We have exceeded our sustainability goals each year through the very best in strategic partners. In 2023 we diverted over 5,000 pounds from the local landfill and moved completely away from single use plastics by replacing them with compostable options. We are striving to prove that any event no matter how small can make an enormous impact in their communities.”
