C2C Worldwide: Nashville Vibes & Germany Lineup Unveiled

In this picture he brings his spring tour with new production lighting by Bandit Lites to the House Of Blues in Dallas March 30.
Semmel Concerts has unveiled the lineup for the German premiere of Country 2 Country at
Verti Music Hall in Berlin, March 2-3.
The weekend also sees the launch of the new concert series Nashville Vibes, which will be the brand name for all future Semmel Concerts country music tours. The Country Music Association (CMA) will also be presenting its new global format “Introducing Nashville” at the C2C Festival with exclusive talents.
Hunter Hayes, Drake White & the Big Fire, CAM, Brett Eldredge and Keith Urban are all set to perform live on stage. Three country newcomers will be rocking the main stage under the CMA format “Introducing Nashville”: Lindsay Ell, Lauren Jenkins and Logan Mize. All three artists will be on stage at the same time, playing their songs in the round.
Kiefer Sutherland and Doug Seegers will prelude the 2-day country music marathon with live performances in a series called “Warm-Up C2C Festival” presented by Arte TV “Berlin Live” on March 1.
Verti Music Hall will receive some C2C branding for the occasion: The Event Room at Bowling World will become the Pindeck Stage, and an auditorium at the UCI Luxe Cinema will be renamed the Nashville Vibes Stage during the festival. Newcomers Twinnie, Ingrid Andress and Kenny Foster will go back and forth between these two auxiliary stages along with Lindsay Ell, Lauren Jenkins and Logan Mize, who will be presenting their solo repertoire here.
The so-called Mercedes Platz, which connects Verti Music Hall with the surrounding locations, will be transformed into a “country village” with two event trucks, music and country-themed merchandise stands. The Bowling World and the 260 Grad (260 degrees) rooftop bar will host the afterparties.
C2C will also celebrate its premiere in the Netherlands this year, when Keith Urban with special guests Brett Eldredge and Drake White perform at ASAF Live, March 4.
The UK editions of C2C in London, Glasgow and Dublin will go down the weekend after, March 8-10, headlined by Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum and Chris Stapleton.
The days in-between are bridged by the first Semmel Concerts tour under the new Nashville Vibes banner, starring Lindsay Ell, Lauren Jenkins, Logan Mize and Craig Campbell.
The all-German tour dates can be found below.
C2C also heads to Australia for the first time this year. Tim McGraw, Kelsea Ballerini and Midland have been confirmed to play Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena on Sept. 28, followed by Brisbane’s Entertainment Centre on Sept. 29. More artists will be announced.
