This time last week saw a massive set of announcements from the C2C Festival organisers regarding Songwriters night and the wider stages around the festival. As part of the festival Radio 2 sponsor a stage at the Indigo for up and coming artists and younger artists with a buzz about them that showcases what they can do.
Main arena ticket holders can access the Indigo for free whilst anyone else can buy a wristband for £10 and access it also.
We thought it would be a great idea to make the playlist C2C / Radio Stage 2 related this week. Over the course of the three days there are 16 artists scheduled to appear in the Indigo and we have created a playlist with one track from each artist on. For some acts, like the wonderfully talented Ashley McBryde we have gone with their latest single, ‘American Scandal’ whilst with other artists we’ve picked a song that is a particular favourite of ours, like ‘County Line’ by High Valley.
The Walker Hayes track we selected was ‘Halloween’ as the co-writer and singer on that track is Nicolle Galyon, a songwriter who is appearing in her own right on Thursday March 8th at the festival as part of the CMA Songwriters evening.
The three days at the Indigo promises to be an entertaining mini-festival all of it’s own although many of the acts are also appearing on other stages around the arena, sometimes even on the same day – so it is worth downloading the C2C app for your phone so that you can plot out your day and ensure that you get to see your favourites or discover a new act destined to become a favourite.
