C2C Country To Country Festival update
The UK's premier country music festival has been making a few big announcement recently, following on from the main stage announcement late last year.
First up, the after show parties have grown in status with each of the three nights now having a headliner: on the back of three number one country singles Frankie Ballard appears on Friday; hot band of the moment Old Dominion are on Saturday; country-rocking A Thousand Horses close the weekend on Sunday night.
Also, for the first time, the world famous Bluebird Cafe is coming to London. Basically the most legendary venue in Nashville, it's rocking up in London for two shows on Saturday and another two on Sunday.
Saturday March 12
Jessi Alexander, Barry Dean, Lori McKenna
Striking Matches, Charles Esten, Georgia Middleton, Gary Burr
Sunday March 13
Shane McAnally, Old Dominion
Barry Dean, Maren Morris, Shane McAnally
And finally, the acts appearing on the hugely popular pop-up stages have juts been announced and it's a mix of C2C favourites (Sonia Leigh, Jessi Alexander, Dexeter, Honey Ryder), newbies (Case Hardin, Lori McKenna, Emma Stevens, Rainey Qualley) and the unknown.
Tickets are sparse for the after shows, and the Bluebird Cafe but the pop-up stages are all free to access across the weekend and are a great chance to see some genuinely exciting talent as well as discover someone new.
All the deets are on the Country To Country website.
