Kacey Musgraves, Little Big Town and Faith Hill & Tim McGraw have been announced as the headliners of the 2018 C2C: Country To Country Music Festival: an annual multi-day festival created by AEG Europe and SJM Concerts in association with the Country Music Association which takes place each March in London, Glasgow and Dublin.
In 2018, the C2C concerts will take place on 9, 10 and 11 March. On Friday 9 March, Faith Hill & Tim McGraw play London’s 02 Arena with support from Kelsea Ballerini and Old Dominion, while at the Dublin 3 Arena, Kacey Musgraves headlines, with support from Kip Moore and Luke Combs. Little Big Town headline the SSE Arena in Glasgow that same night, with support from Margo Price and the legendary Emmylou Harris.
On Saturday 10 March, Kacey Musgraves headlines at London’s O2, again with support from Kip Moore and Luke Combs, though the evening’s bill also includes a special tribute to the late Glen Campbell from Ashley Campbell. In Dublin that same evening, Little Big Town headline with support from Emmylou Harris, Margo Price and Midland, while in Glasgow Faith Hill & Tim McGraw headline.
In London on Sunday, 11 March, Little Big Town (with the same supporting bill) headline, while Faith Hill & Tim McGraw (again with the same supporting cast) play in Dublin and in Glasgow, Kacey Musgraves, Kip Moore and Luke Combs take to the stage.
One of Europe’s biggest country music events, C2C was first launched in March 2013 at The O2, London as a two day event with Carrie Underwood and Tim McGraw as headliners. This was Tim McGraw’s first UK appearance. Outside of the arena a small amount of free Pop Up Stages presented local country acts.
In 2014 C2C launched in Dublin O2 (now 3Arena) taking place on the same weekend as the London event, with artists switching venues each day. Headliners in London and Dublin in 2014 were Brad Paisley and the Zac Brown Band. The Dixie Chicks also performed – their first UK performance in 8 years. CMA Songwriters Series and after show parties were added in London, and the Shires and Ward Thomas first performed on the Pop Up Stages.
In 2016 C2C grew into three days and added C2C Glasgow at the Clyde Auditorium. Headliners that year included Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood and Eric Church. Chris Stapleton also made his UK and Ireland debut. In London artists including Maren Morris and Charles Esten – from the TV Show Nashville – performed on the new artist stage in the arena now named The Yamaha Music Stage. New stages outside of the arena included the Bluebird Café, BBC Radio 2 Country Stage and the Late Night Sounds Like Nashville Stage.
2017 saw C2C turning 5 reaching over 80,000 fans across three days in London, Glasgow and Dublin. 2018’s event promises to be the biggest yet, with tickets for all the shows going on sale from 10am on Friday, 20 October 2017.
