Europe’s biggest country music festival, Country to Country (C2C), is returning to UK shores on March 11-13 next year.
The Festival Suffered a Two-Year Break
The festival’s return is certainly a sign of celebration. It suffered a two-year break as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. The festival enters its eighth year of commemoration. Events will take place at the O2 Arena London, 3Arena Dublin, and The SSE Hydro in Glasgow. The long-awaited announcement of the return of the festival has been led to further excitement. Why? Because the amazing headliners for the three-day festival were announced as well.
Next year’s festival headliners include country superstar Miranda Lambert alongside Luke Combs and Darius Rucker. Also performing are multiple CMA award winners and nominees Ashley McBryde, Runaway June, and Hailey Whitters.
In addition to the headline event, the C2C spotlight stage returns to London and Glasgow. Here, they will feature artists Tenille Townes and Callista Clark. The spotlight stage highlights some of the brightest new artists in between the main acts, providing European fans the opportunity to enjoy the latest up-and-coming artists from the US. Previous performances from the spotlight stage have included Caylee Hammack, Gabby Barrett, and Maren Morris.
