As promised, C2C (Country 2 Country) will return for three days between Friday, March 11 and Sunday, March 13, 2022 — and the line-up looks stacked.
Miranda Lambert, Luke Combs and Darius Rucker will headline the event, which takes place across London, Dublin and Glasgow. On Mar. 11, Lambert performs in London, with Darius in Dublin and Combs in Glasgow. Those lineups then rotate across each city for the course of the weekend, bringing UK and Ireland country fans a serious amount of music.
Those stars are joined by Kip Moore, Brett Young, Ashley McBryde, Russell Dickerson, Scotty McCreery, Flatland Cavalry and Hailey Whitters. The event will also feature the C2C Spotlight Stage, where Tenille Townes and Callista Clark are slated to perform in London and Glasgow.
C2C have now followed this up with a second wave of announcements. Morgan Wade, Tiera and Priscilla Block will take to the main stage at this year's festival as part of the Country Music Association’s international series Introducing Nashville.
They have also confirmed that the Spotlight Stage will be returning to London and Glasgow in 2022, with some of the brightest upcoming artists including BRELAND, Brittney Spencer, Callie Twisselman, Callista Clark, Seaforth and Tenille Arts, with more to be announced. There's more information on this line-up announcement here.
Unfortunately, Runaway June have had to pull out of playing the festival this March due to the imminent arrival of a new band member. Tenille Townes will take their slot on the main stage on Saturday, while rising newcomer Erin Kinsey joins the bill on the Spotlight Stage.
The acts playing the festival stages and Bluebird Cafè have also now been announced - with Alex Hall, Avery Anna, Breland, Brittney Spencer, Caitlyn Smith, Callie Twisselman, Callista Clark, Erin Kinsey, King Calaway, Matt Stell, Robyn Ottolini, Shy Carter, Tebey, Tenille Arts, Tim Hicks, Walker County and Willie Jones joining the bill.

With the final acts now announced, a swathe of exciting British and International artists have joined the bill on the Icon and Garden stages. The acts now announced are Catherine McGrath, Danny McMahon, Eric & Jensen, Essex County, Gary Quinn, Harleymoon Kemp, Izzie Walsh, Jeannine Barry, Jess Thristan, Katy Hurt, Kaitlyn Baker, Lucy Grubb, Pete Gow, The County Affair, Tim Prottey-Jones, Eleri Angharad, Everette, Hayley McKay, Jess Moskaluke, Kezia Gill, Laura Oakes and Ruthie Collins.

C2C originally cancelled its 2020 festival, with the hopes of staging it in 2021, but organisers ultimately announced earlier this year that they were again postponing the event. Those who purchased tickets to C2C 2020 were encouraged to hold onto them.
