The Long Road festival, boasting acts including the likes of The Cadillac Three, Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives, Brandy Clark, LOCASH and more, is set to arrive at Leicestershire’s stunning Stanford Hall estate between 26-28th August 2022.
Appealing to music fans from all around the UK, The Long Road promises to be an unrivalled feast of a festival.
With a welcoming celebration of the finest handpicked artists, the three-day camping event gathers together a range of alternative music fans for a joyous weekend in the great outdoors.
You can expect a whole world of displays and extra events to entice every kind of American muscle car and vintage motorcycle enthusiast, as well as an unbeatable array of vendors to cater to craft beer drinkers and foodies with a taste for the famous southern hospitality.
First announced are the Sunday main stage headliners The Cadillac Three. Riding high from their 10-year anniversary tour, they’ll be perfectly rounding off a sunny weekend with their fuzzy freewheeling psychedelic jams.
Following the announcement, the band said; "We are so excited to get back over to the UK during festival season in 2022 & 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!"
The festival has also unveiled two more headliners to join The Cadillac Three - Chris Young has been added to the lineup as the Saturday night headliner, while Drake White brings his incredible live show to the Interstate on Friday night.
Flying the flag for country music’s enduring legacy is the Grammy Award-winning Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives. Equally authentic and flamboyant in style, Marty is now being inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame and knows how to deliver a festival set for the ages.
Among the many award-winning acts found exclusively on The Long Road line-up, LOCASH will be making their festival debut here next year as an English exclusive for 2022, next to the accomplished story-telling of Brandy Clark. Alongside her is an exciting crop of country’s leading women from around the USA, including the likes of Lauren Alaina, Lindsay Ell, Sara Evans, Gretchen Peters, Sunny Sweeney and Cassadee Pope.
The Long Road is excited to welcome the passionate singer-songwriter Rissi Palmer, host of her Color Me Country show on Apple Music Country, where she shines an important light on the often marginalised Black, Indigenous, and Latinx histories of the genre. Valerie Ponzio, Madeline Edwards, Charly Lowry, Chapel Hart, Camille Parker and Miko Marks are all playing the stage.
Elsewhere, across all four stages of immersive musical discovery, more names are revealed, including Sarah Darling, Lilly Hiatt, Sarah Shook & the Disarmers, Della Mae and more.
Always a rare opportunity to see so much American talent in one place, The Long Road is just as proud of the UK and Ireland’s homegrown scene. A variety of alternative sounds from bluegrass, folk and UK country come courtesy of Hudson Taylor, Callum Pitt, Morganway, Jade Helliwell, Jess Thristan, Flats & Sharps and Noble Jacks.
Alongside them, Buffalo Nichols, Fruit Bats, Allison Russell, Priscilla Block and NYC's hip hop bluegrass group Gangstagrass join the bill, plus some brilliant British acts like Rumer, Roseanne Reid and Legends of Country.
More acts are to be announced in the coming months. The Long Road takes place between 26-28 August Bank Holiday Weekend 2022 at Stanford Hall, Leicestershire. For more line-up and ticket information, see below:
