The Pop Up Stages have become an integral part of C2C, with many people going along just to see these free shows. We caught up with some of our favorite Pop Up Stage Artists to find out what they think about being included in this fabulous event

” I am grateful, honoured, and so excited to return to C2C again! Last year was a blast! I am happy to see some of my friends and favorite songwriters from Nashville on the pop up stages! It’s going to be a smash!”

Stoked to be back. To be asked for a 2nd year running is bad ass! So we’ll make sure it’s as fun for everyone is it can be!


There are some key events in the UK music calendar that you just know are going to be special. And massive. And exuberant. C2C is one of those events. We have been really lucky to have been selected to play three years in a row, and have headed out to perform at C2C each time like our very lives depended on it. Last year, that crowd were incredible. It was the greatest day of our musical lives. We couldn’t believe it when the crowd started to sing our own songs back at us. We felt like rock stars. This year, everything is bigger, we are so happy to be on a bigger stage with our band backing us. And I’ve promised myself that it won’t make me cry this year. Well, maybe not… We are absolutely pumped for C2C 2016 and cannot wait to get back to London with new material, new energy and a new lineup.


‘I’m thrilled to be playing C2C: Country to Country at The O2 – it’s fantastic to see country music find a bigger outlet in the UK, and I’m happy to have the chance to share crossover country rock with a wider UK audience. It will be an amazing experience and the bill this year is absolutely inspiring, I feel lucky to be part of such a big musical adventure. I am grateful to the O2 for giving me a chance to showcase my music in such beautiful surroundings’

I am super excited to have been asked to play at C2C again this year! Last year was incredible and the line up looks really strong again this year! So much talent under one roof. Cannot wait!

“We are really happy that we will be returning to Country to Country for the 3rd year. We will be bringing our band with us this time, too! Everything is set for this year to be the biggest and best one yet and we are very proud to be a part of it”

Hi, I’m Annette, I have been a huge country music fan since the early 90s those were the days we were lucky enough to have CMT in the UK. I enjoy nothing more than listening to country music whilst having a cold beer (or a moonshine) with friends. I try to as many gigs as I can here in the UK and in the USA; I think of Nashville as my second home and I am lucky to have made some amazing friends in Tennessee. Think Country is something I am very proud of, I just want to share my love and passion of all things country music related with you all.
