“We’re delighted to announce our lineup for C2C 2022!” the festival’s organizers said via social media. “It’s been a long time in the making and we’re so thankful for all of you who have kept hold of your tickets. We can’t wait to finally celebrate the return of live country music to UK and Ireland together at C2C!”
The festival had to be postponed in 2020 and 2021, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Combs and Rucker were previously slated to headline C2C’s 2021 festival. As part of the 2022 lineup announcement, the festival’s organizers stated that tickets for the festival’s 2020 dates will also be honored for next year’s event. Tickets will go on sale Friday at ticketmaster.com.
Lambert announced her headlining slot by sharing several throwback photos of her previous trips to Europe. Meanwhile, Combs said via Twitter, “Alright, @c2cfestival…let’s try this again! Can’t wait to get back over the pond & play with the band.” Rucker added, “Can’t wait to be back on the other side of the pond for @c2cfestival in 2022!”
C2C: Country to Country is Europe’s largest country music festival and was created by AEG Europe and SJM Concerts, in association with the Country Music Association.
