The British Country Music Festival is coming to Blackpool’s Winter Gardens this September.
Taking place from the 13th to 15th September 2019, the new festival will be headlined by Ward Thomas, Catherine McGrath and Sarah Darling. The British Country Music Festival is produced by Fit the Bill in association with The Blackpool Entertainment Company.
Other artists set to perform include Laura Oakes, Megan O’Neill, The Adelaides, Worry Dolls, Blair Dunlop, Rob Heron & The Tea Pad Orchestra, Danny McMahon and Jake Morrell. More artists will be announced in the coming months.
There will be five stages in and around the Winter Gardens that will host around 100 performers across the three days.
Martin Blore, Executive Producer from Fit The Bill said, “This is a very exciting time for British Country and Americana music. This genre is synonymous with Nashville, but the Brits are breaking barriers, creating their own style of country music and attracting fans from all over the world. Our home-grown talent is also achieving mainstream chart success and we felt it was a good time to create a festival that celebrates British Country and Americana artists.”
He added: “We also want to provide a public platform for talented, emerging artists whose music needs a wider audience and we will be inviting music industry colleagues to come and enjoy the Making Waves stages.”
The British Country Music Festival will run from 4pm on Friday through to 6pm on Sunday afternoon. (Friday 4pm until 1am, Saturday 12 noon till 1am and Sunday 12 noon until 7pm).
