The R&A and Live Nation have joined forces to take one of golf’s most entertaining Championships to the next level.

The AIG Women’s Open, one of The R&A’s flagship Championships, allows the world’s best golfers to go head-to-head in the most international line-up of the year.

The Championship aims to attract new and diverse audiences by challenging perceptions of golf and delivering an exceptional off-course experience to match the unforgettable on-course action.

A headline performance from BRIT Award winner Ellie Goulding [above] and the introduction of a Festival Fan Village contributed to a 53% growth in attendance for 2023. Now, with the support of Live Nation, the AIG Women’s Open is set to reach even greater heights.

The partnership will see Live Nation produce the concert offering at this year’s AIG Women's Open. The collaboration is set to elevate the overall experience of the Championship by integrating live music performances.

The headliner for the 2024 AIG Women’s Open will be revealed soon.
