The biggest indoor country music festival in the North!


So the first British Country Music Festival came to a close. The dance floors were swept, the lighting trusses lowered, tour buses headed to the M55 and Martin and Marina (now known as M&M), have officially put on record their thanks to the artists on every stage, the technical team, the stage management, the crew, Michael Williams and all the staff at the Winter Gardens, Blackpool Bid, Blackpool Council, but most of all to each and every one of you for buying a ticket in year one. It was a huge leap of faith to support an unknown festival and as promoters and producers, year one is always the toughest.

Some amazing memories have been made, so many new friends, what an amazing community the country music attracts. You will all have your own favourite moments and performances and we hope that we have introduced you to some new performers that are producing great work and will surely become the headliners of the future. For us, that is what is most important. To provide a platform for emerging talent.

So to 2020! Tickets are now on sale for this year and thanks to so many of you who have already secured your places! The dates are the 4th, 5th and 6th September. There will be some new ideas, some tweaks, we have already added to the VIP offering and most of all, some international performers, but our main point of difference is that we will continue to promote the best of British country music.

The world famous illuminations will be switched on and we look forward to welcoming you back for another great party, where everyone makes new friends, and for those who came last year, you will be reunuted with friends already made and who colllectively have become part of The British Country Music Festival/TBCMF family.

Thank you, best wishes from Martin & Marina
