The line-up for C2C: Country to Country 2020 was revealed last night ahead of Introducing Nashville, which kicked off Country Music Week.
Returning from Friday 13th to Sunday 15th March, C2C 2020 will be headlined by Eric Church, Darius Rucker and Luke Combs. Church headlined the festival for the first time back in 2016 while Rucker and Combs will headline for the first time.
Rucker has played C2C before in 2013 and 2017 while Combs made his Main Stage debut in 2018.
Making their Main Stage debuts in 2020 are The Cadillac Three, Tanya Tucker, Charles Esten, Runaway June and Jordan Davis. Returning to the Main Stage are Old Dominion and Brett Young, who will make his London Main Stage debut (he was Main Stage everywhere but London in 2018).
Introducing Nashville will see artists including Abby Anderson, Eric Paslay and Tenille Townes take to the mainstage together for an acoustic set sharing stories behind their tracks.
Bob Harris OBE said, “I am so proud to be part of the C2C family. I have been the main stage host at the O2 in London from the very beginning and have watched the festival grow to become one of the most important and iconic events in the global Country Music calendar. I am thrilled to once again be hosting C2C in London and broadcasting highlights on BBC Radio 2. 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”
Chris York, C2C Festival promoter for SJM Concerts commented: “C2C Festival 2020 continues to build on the massive success of Country to Country in the U.K. and across Europe. We look forward to seeing all you passionate country fans in March once again. We would like to thank our partners at BBC Radio 2 and The Country Music Association and as ever thank you for your support.”
