What is it?

C2C: Country To Country is a three-day music festival at The O2 – March 10-12 – which grew out of an initial two day festival in 2013 with Carrie Underwood and Tim McGraw as headliners.

The appetite for country music over this side of the pond has grown so the festival is longer and takes place in Glasgow and Dublin as well.

What’s going on?

Apart from the set-piece gigs (see below), the whole of The O2 complex gets a C&W makeover with fans’ lounges, merchandise stalls, themed films at Cineworld, a town square and The Bluebird Cafe where the songwriters hang out. Basically think Disneyland in Nashville – and dive in.

What about tickets?

Some events are priced separately and tickets are selling out fast but there’s still three-day tickets available at £160-£249 which determines your seat in the arena. A three-day Country Dream VIP Package is £495. Gets you right up front.

How to get to The O2

Tube

The Jubilee line is the best way to travel to the venue. Check here for Tube status. Remember, Jubilee line is 24 hours on Saturday night but not on Sunday.

Driving

There is parking on site and The O2 is signposted from the M25, the A2 and A20 (from the South East), and the M11 (from the North). Take the junction for Millennium Way or Edmund Halley Way. Allow extra time as there are works on the approach road.

Or just tap in the postcode - SE10 0DX into your Sat Nav.

Bus

The 108, 129, 132, 161, 188, 422, 472 and 486 all stop at North Greenwich station . And the 188 is 24 hours to and from Waterloo station. Sit on the top deck for a View To (A) Kill for.

Boat

The MBNA Thames Clippers service to North Greenwich comes from as far west as Putney and as far east as Woolwich (at limited times).

Cable car

It may only come over from the Royal Docks, but the Emirates Air Line is certainly a more scenic route for those adventurous sorts among you. If you’re travelling on the DLR as well, you can change at Royal Victoria and get to it from there.
