The details for the fifth year of C2C: Country to Country, taking place Friday 10th to Sunday 12th March 2017, were announced at the festival’s launch party in London.
Tim McKay, the lead singer of UK Country band Pauper Kings, revealed the line up to an expectant crowd of fans at Brooklyn Bowl in The O2 Arena, London. Brad Paisley and Zac Brown Band were announced as two of the three headliners, with the third expected to be announced in the coming days.
They will be joined by Chris Young, Darius Rucker, Jennifer Nettles, Hunter Hayes, Maren Morris, Cam, Dan + Shay and Brothers Osborne. More acts and the day splits will be announced before tickets go on sale on Friday 4th November.
BBC Radio 2 broadcaster Bob Harris says, “It’s amazing to think that C2C is five years old already and also how quickly it has grown. I am personally thrilled to be at the centre of it all and can’t wait for next March to welcome back old friends from Nashville and to introduce some new ones.”
The Yamaha Music Stage, the BBC Radio 2 Stage and the official C2C Aftershows are still to be announced as are the free to watch stages around the venue. The CMA Songwriters series line up will also be announced at a later date.
