Country on the Coast 2019 is an exciting new addition to the South Coast! The brainchild of Lily Garland, Jacks Edwards and Trevor Bratty with the aim to bring the ever growing popularity of UK Country Music to the South!
“There are many incredible Country Music Festivals in the UK, Buckle and Boots, The Black Deer Festival, Welshpool to name just a few but they were always so far away from Portsmouth, we wanted to bring some of the incredible talent the UK has to offer to a new audience who were crying out for something like this” Lily Garland
Lily’s main aim was to bring out the collaboration and unity of the wonderful artists she has seen and performed with over the last few years,
“There can be quite a bit of negativity within the music industry. I wanted to show that we can all come together for a common purpose, to allow country music lovers regardless of age and background, a platform to enjoy not only their favourite country artists but to also discover some new ones!” Lily Garland
Country on the Coast 2019 is a three-day indoor festival, Friday 26th, Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th April 2019, with live music accompanied by, BCMA nominated and Express FM award winning, Russell Hill playing all the best Country Music to keep you dancing the day and night away. Food, stalls, photo booth and a bucking broncho will also be available for your entertainment.
The venue, The Gaiety Bar on South Parade Pier, is a historic Southsea venue almost doomed to disrepair until was saved just a few years ago. It previously hosted many a variety show and tea dance back in the day but now has been reborn to host theatre shows, live music, big events and more, now a venue to rival the best of them!
With BCMA award winners Kezia Gill and The Southern Companion, C2C performers Winters Hill, Square One and Morganway, iTunes Country Chart toppers Gasoline and Matches and Danny McMahon as well as many BCMA and UKCMA nominees amongst the line up, this is not to be missed!
