This year’s festival talent lineup included ‘NASHVILLE’ actor, singer-songwriter, and musician Sam Palladio representing the U.S. and U.K., and representing the U.S. was multi-award-winning vocalist and instrumentalist Tyminski; female Country Rock duo The Sisterhood Band; and Dylan Schneider, who has been labeled by Billboard as "Country Music's Next Rising Star" and has surpassed 1.3 million monthly listeners on Spotify.  Representing the U.K. was Country Pop trio The Adelaides, singer-songwriter Frankie Davies, BCMA Female Vocalist of The Year Jade Helliwell, UK country-pop duo Holloway Road, multi-award-winning and multi-platinum selling folk, rock, and pop band Keywest, Alt-country/folk duo Two Ways Home, and the tenacious female duo and multi-instrumentalists Worry Dolls.

Baylen Leonard, U.K. based radio host, is artistic program consultant. Ascot Travel Services exclusively booked travel for this year’s festival.

Prior to the festival, event organizers kicked-off the music-filled weekend with two newly added events, both of which were SOLD OUT.
