In March 2020, the organisers of Country To Country festival (C2C) has to take the heartbreaking decision to cancel at short notice to protect fans, artists, vendors, and staff from the emerging pandemic. Unfortunately, conditions weren’t right in 2021 either. It’s been a long time coming, but now we’re thrilled to share that C2C has announced dates and artists for a mammoth weekend of country music in 2022!
Returning for its eighth year on Friday 11 to Sunday 13 March 2022, the festival is set to bring yet another incredible line up to The O2 London, 3Arena Dublin, and The SSE Hydro, Glasgow.
“C2C is a pillar in country music, not just to U.K. fans, but to the artist and industry community here in Nashville as well.”Sarah Trahern, CMA Chief Executive Officer
The festivals will be headlined by American country megastars Luke Combs, Darius Rucker and Miranda Lambert (yes, you read that right!)
Also making their return next year will be multiple Country Music Association award winners and nominees Kip Moore, Brett Young, and Ashley McBryde. Meanwhile, Russell Dickerson, American Idol winner Scotty McCreery, Flatland Cavalry, Runaway June and Hailey Whitters will all make their main stage debuts.
The C2C Spotlight stage will be back in London and Glasgow, featuring impressive up-and-coming artists like Tenille Townes and Callista Clark.
We’re particular looking forward to Introducing Nashville, which will see artists performing acoustic versions of their hits and sharing the stories behind the songs on the main stage. Such a good idea to let the maximum number of people experience the power, emotion and intimacy usually only seen in writers’ rounds at small venues.
“I am so proud to be part of the C2C family and have watched the festival grow to become one of the most important and iconic events in the global Country Music calendar. I can’t wait to listen to the best music in the world, enjoy the fantastic atmosphere of the main auditorium, catch the excitement of the pop-up stages and meet the incredible Country fans that make C2C so special.“Bob Harris, radio legend
See you at C2C 2022!
