    Produced by festival and theatre show specialists Fit The Bill, in association with The Blackpool Entertainment Company, the event will be unique in focusing primarily on the best of British Country and Americana artists, promoting the wealth of talent in the UK that is now making Nashville sit up and take notice.

    The Festival will run from 13th to the 15th Sept and the AMA-UK stage will be on the 14th daytime 

    Support artists include Laura Oakes, Megan O’Neill, The Adelaides, Worry Dolls, Blair Dunlop, Rob Heron & The Tea Pad Orchestra, Danny McMahon and Jake Morrell. The festival will include performances on five stages in and around the Winter Gardens complex and it is anticipated that around 100 performers will participate in the event over the long weekend.

    Martin Blore, Executive Producer from Fit The Bill said: “This is a very exciting time for British Country and Americana music. This genre is synonymous with Nashville, but the Brits are breaking barriers, creating their own style of country music and attracting fans from all over the world. Our home-grown talent is also achieving mainstream chart success and we felt it was a good time to create a festival that celebrates British Country and Americana artists.”

    He added: “We also want to provide a public platform for talented, emerging artists whose music needs a wider audience and we will be inviting music industry colleagues to come and enjoy the Making Waves stages.”

    The spectacular indoor setting of the Winter Gardens Blackpool enables music lovers to ditch the need for tents in favour of local accommodation providers, or the comfort of their own homes.

    Michael Williams, Managing Director of Blackpool Entertainment Company and operators of the Winter Gardens added: “The Winter Gardens has attracted some of the greatest music artists over the years from Ed Sheeran to The Shires and we’ve hosted events including the Blackpool Dance Championships and The International Soul Festival. With the addition of the new £25m conference centre next year, it’s the perfect time for The British Country Music Festival to launch here and grow to include seminars and workshops.”
