The British Country Music Festival 2022

The British Country Music Festival 2022

Now in its third year, The British Country Music Festival (TBCMF) will take place at the indoor, Winter Gardens entertainment complex in Blackpool from 2nd to 4th September 2022. With four stages in the venue, the event was launched in 2019 to provide a platform for grass roots artists to perform alongside established, singer-songwriters of country music, Americana, folk, roots and all the various sub genres. This year the festival is expecting record ticket sales with the announcement that Ivor Novello Songwriter of The Year 2014 and BRIT’s Critics Choice Award winner Tom Odell will be the main Saturday night headliner. Tom has had four top five albums including massive number one Long Way Down, and Jubilee Road which was inspired by the terraced streets in which he grew up. He is due to release his fifth studio album later this year.”

Second headliner on Saturday will be Lucy Spraggan, whose song-writing skills are critically acclaimed and have covered subjects from sobriety to mental health. Since wowing the judges on the X Factor back in 2012, Lucy has toured extensively with showcase performances at SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas in 2018, a UK tour and European dates and appearances at Glastonbury and Isle of Wight festivals. Lucy also toured with Melissa Etheridge in Europe in 2019. Her latest album “Choices” was released in 2021 and debuted at number 5 on the album charts.

Hot on the heels of the announcement that The Wandering Hearts will be performing at this years’ British Country Music Festival, organisers have now released the final line-up for 2022 with the addition of Laura Evans to the Saturday night main stage.

Sunday 4th September is the last day of the event that traditionally welcomes an international artist to the festival. This year sees Canadian country singer Jess Moskaluke take that guest spot.

Headlining on Friday is Amy Wadge, making a rare live appearance, having recently spent more time focusing on song-writing.  Amy, is the writer of this year’s Eurovision song “Space Man” for singer Sam Ryder. Her long established partnership with Ed Sheeran is well documented and her name is referenced on the EP they wrote together “Songs I Wrote With Amy”. The EP includes the beautiful and highly successful “Thinking Out Loud”, for which she won the Grammy for Song of The Year in 2016. Amy wrote the soundtrack for two series of the BBC’s Keeping Faith and she has also co-written for and with artists including Keith Urban, LeAnn Rimes, The Shires and Dua Lipa.
