Brad Paisley, and Zac Brown Band lead the first acts announced for the 5th C2C: Country to Country which will be hosted by Glasgow, London and Dublin next year.

Also announced for the annual country music festival, which will be held over three consecutive days in the three cities from Friday 10th to Sunday 12th March 2017, are Chris Young, Darius Rucker, Jennifer Nettles, Hunter Hayes, Maren Morris, Cam, Dan + Shay, and Brothers Osborne.

Further artists and day splits will be announced in due course.

Billed as a celebration of country style and culture with The O2 transformed into a mini Nashville and in addition up and coming artists performing on pop-up stages across the site, the Town Square will return with a whole host of food, drink and entertainment stands.

The legendary BBC Radio 2 broadcaster Bob Harris says, “It’s amazing to think that C2C is five years old already and also how quickly it has grown.  I am personally thrilled to be at the centre of it all and can’t wait for next March to welcome back old friends from Nashville and to introduce some new ones.”

Milly Olykan C2C Festival Director for The O2 added,"We are thrilled to be going into our fifth year of Country to Country – it’s been incredible to have established an event that is so hugely anticipated by country fans and artists alike.  For us to be presenting many new artists for their first time in the UK and Ireland as well as welcoming some back to C2C is fantastic.  The growth of C2C owes so much to BBC Radio 2 and the Country Music Association of America – who are great partners on this festival with us."

Early bird tickets have all sold out. Full prices tickets go on general sale 10am Friday 4th November 2016.
