The three headliners will be Ireland based Nathan Carter, who takes the top spot on Friday’s opening night, Wildwood Kin headline on Saturday and Lisa McHugh will be leading the Sunday programme.
Nathan Carter, although born in Liverpool, now lives in Ireland, the birth place of his parents. He is one of the Emerald Isle’s most successful artists, outselling One Direction, Pharrell Williams and Michael Buble, becoming the first country act to reach number one in the Irish charts in 2013 after Garth Brooks six years earlier. With over 12.5m streams this year alone and almost 878k listeners in 89 countries, Blackpool is readying itself for a deluge of Irish fans to be in the resort for the festival weekend and the world famous illuminations.
Sisters Beth and Emillie Key and their cousin Meghann Loney, collectively known as Wildwood Kin, are from Exeter and they continue to be one of the most popular bands on the contemporary country and alternative folk scene. The girls completed a headline tour in the UK to support their self-titled album, before touring Europe. Their music continues to secure national radio play for their stunning harmonies and impressive song-writing and they are also building a reputation for electrifying, live performances.
The third headliner Lisa McHugh, originally from Glasgow and originally of Irish descent, also returned to live in her parents homeland ten years ago. She has won ‘Female Vocalist of the Year’ five times, as well as ‘Outstanding Achievement On The World Stage’ when she performed at the Grand Ole Opry. Lisa has released seven albums and 13 singles, an impressive 11 of which have risen to number one on the iTunes country chart.
