The Long Road 2022
The Country, Americana and Roots extravaganza returns on the August Bank Holiday weekend in 2022. First wave of artists revealed!
Returning to Stanford Hall estate in Leicestershire over the Bank Holiday weekend of Friday 26th to Sunday 28th August 2022, The Long Road has announced the first wave of artists for the Country, Americana and Roots music extravaganza.
Country rock icons The Cadillac Three have been unveiled as the Sunday main stage headliners fresh from playing their 10th anniversary UK tour this December.
Flying the flag for country music’s enduring legacy, is the Grammy Award-winning Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives. Equally authentic and flamboyant in style, Marty is now being inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, and knows how to deliver a festival set for the ages.
Amongst the many award-winning acts found exclusively on The Long Road line up, LOCASH will be making their festival debut here next year as an English exclusive, next to the accomplished story-telling songwriter Brandy Clark. Alongside her is an exciting crop of Country’s leading women from around the USA, including the likes of Lauren Alaina, Lindsay Ell, Sara Evans, Gretchen Peters, Sunny Sweeney and Cassadee Pope.
The Long Road is excited to welcome the passionate singer-songwriter Rissi Palmer, host of her Color Me Country show on Apple Music Country, where she shines an important light on the often marginalised Black, Indigenous, and Latinx histories of the genre. Elsewhere across all four stages of immersive musical discovery, more names are revealed, including Sarah Darling, Lilly Hiatt, Sarah Shook & the Disarmers, Della Mae and more.
Always a rare opportunity to see so much American talent in one place, and The Long Road is just as proud of the UK and Ireland’s homegrown scene. A variety of alternative sounds from bluegrass, folk and UK country, come courtesy of Hudson Taylor, Callum Pitt, Morganway, Jade Helliwell, Jess Thristan, Flats & Sharps and Noble Jacks.
Creative Director of The Long Road, Absolute Radio Country’s very own Baylen Leonard, says: “We couldn't be more excited to share our first announcement of artists for TLR22! There's something for every music lover across our 4 stages, from firm favourites to new discoveries, it's all about showcasing just how broad country, americana, and roots music is.
“Plus now that we've moved to the August bank holiday, there's even more time to enjoy the beautiful setting of Stanford Hall in the Leicestershire countryside. We can't wait to welcome you back next year!”
