The festival, which is the biggest American country music event in Europe, will hit the O2 Arena in London from Friday, March 8 to Sunday, March 10 2019, marking the seventh year for the event.

The line-up announcement was made by BBC radio presenter Bob Harris during the annual Country Music Week event in London. Harris has served as the master of ceremonies for the festival since its inception.
“I am so proud to have been involved with C2C from the beginning and to watch it grow to become one of the major global events in the country music calendar. I’m thrilled to once again be introducing all the amazing artists on the main stage and enjoying the fantastic atmosphere of C2C at The O2, London,” Harris said.
