The 2015 C2C, Country 2 Country Festival, the U.K.’s largest country music festival, was a success again this year. Concerts were held Feb. 28 and March 1 in Oslo and Stockholm, and March 7 and 8 in London and Dublin, featuring performances from the biggest names in country music, alongside emerging artists from the U.K. and Europe.
The third C2C London event, presented by AEG Europe and SJM Concerts in association with the Country Music Association, attracted more than 30,000 fans.
C2C featured performances by Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Brandy Clark, Florida Georgia Line, Brantley Gilbert, Lady Antebellum, Kip Moore, Lee Ann Womack and many others.
The London events kicked off with a special presentation of the CMA Songwriters Series Friday night at indigo at The O2. Presented in partnership with the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp. (NCVC), the evening was hosted by Kix Brooks with Jessi Alexander, Clark, Nashville cast member Sam Palladio, and Jon Randall. Due to their overwhelming success at last year’s CMA Songwriters Series at C2C, Striking Matches was invited to join the show as special surprise guests.
CMA also hosted meetings and receptions that brought together international executives to discuss all things country music, including a CMA Executive Strategy Session with the CMA U.K. Advisory Council.
