Line up poster for The British Country Music Festival 2021

Tickets & Shop

After the success of  TBCMF’s maiden weekend in 2019 we were so disappointed to postpone the 2020 festival, but we are determined to create something for artists, fans and us to look forward to for 2021.

The British Country Music Festival is proud to support country music artists from the British Isles (including all UK countries and Ireland).  We can hear a new sound, more nuanced, slightly subtler, slightly cooler being created by our homegrown talent. The Brits Are Coming!

You can expect headliners playing alongside established acts, playing alongside breaking artists. You will experience an eclectic mix of music styles of country music and all its wonderful sub genres. These including contemporary country, alt country, traditional country, bluegrass, country pop, country rock, folk, country soul, blues and Americana. Whatever the genre, the music comes first.

The festival has a relaxed, informal atmosphere. You will soon be chatting to fellow fans or the artists themselves. Each stage has its own meet and greet area for artists to meet you directly after their performance for photographs and for signing merchandise.

Built in 1875, our stunning indoor venue, the Grade II listed Winter Gardens in Blackpool, is the perfect stage to present a country music festival.  Described as a pleasure palace, our five stages include the world famous candlelit Empress Ballroom, the subterranean art deco Arena with its twin stages – acoustic and band stages and the tented Pavilion Theatre with its promenading horseshoe.

All the rooms have options for sitting, standing or dancing.

Being indoors gives us lots of advantages. The weather won’t spoil the party and you won’t have to trudge through mud to use temporary toilets.

As well as enjoying great company, a great line up and a stunning venue, all tickets are exchanged for wristbands that let you come and go as you please across the weekend. So you can take advantage of Blackpool’s seaside attractions and the world famous illuminations.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to TBCMF 2021  “Where The Lights Are Shining”.

See you in Blackpool from 3-5 September.

Best wishes

Martin & Marina

NB Although not confirmed yet, Friday is likely to be the switch-on night for Blackpool Illuminations, the motorways can become very busy we recommend setting off as early as possible.

Nobody knows how long this virus will be with us, but we must not let it stop us planning for when restrictions ease in the future. We are optimistic that by September 2021, there will be better solutions to track and trace guests and availability of vaccines.

Our Guarantee:  If the festival is cancelled due to Covid-19 or restrictions imposed by government, you will be entitled to a full refund or if you prefer, you can hold on to your ticket at the price you paid and it will be valid for a re-arranged date.

We are determined to run the festival, but when we do it has to be safe for our guests, artists, crew and venue staff.

We are reviewing our operating plan and policy on a monthly basis as things change.

We are working closely with the venue, local council, local safety advisory groups and we are following the planning considerations of the Purple Guide.
