The UK’s Long Road Festival has announced the first artists confirmed for its return next year, including Sunday main stage headliners The Cadillac Three. The country and Americana jamboree will now take place two weeks earlier than its traditional slot, at Stanford Hall in Leicestershire on the bank holiday weekend of August 26-28.
Almost 30 acts have been announced at what organizers say will be the biggest Long Road to date, and tickets are on sale from 9am local time this morning (Thursday). Other attractions include Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives, Brandy Clark, LOCASH, Lauren Alaina, and Gretchen Peters, along with such UK talents as Jess Thristan, Jade Helliwell, and Morganway.
“We are so excited to get back over to the UK during festival season in 2022,” say the Cadillac Three, “and to be playing The Long Road for the first time! We’ve had so many friends tell us how great a time it is. We can’t wait to bring some Country Fuzz to y’all next summer!”
Long Road creative director Baylen Leonard says: “We couldn’t be more excited to share our first announcement of artists for TLR22! There’s something for every music lover across our four stages, from firm favorites to new discoveries, it’s all about showcasing just how broad country, Americana, and roots music is. Plus now that we’ve moved to the August bank holiday, there’s even more time to enjoy the beautiful setting of Stanford Hall in the Leicestershire countryside. We can’t wait to welcome you back next year!”
