Every year, the Nashville Meets London Music Festival features established and rising new talent from Nashville, Tennessee, and the UK. The festival, which has become London’s largest FREE Country music festival, is held at Canada Square Park in Canary Wharf and is part of Canary Wharf’s Arts + Events programme.

Past performers include American Young, Ashley Campbell, Yola Carter, Russell Dickerson, Holloway Road, Sam Outlaw, Sam Palladio, Angaleena Presley, Raintown, Lucie Silvas, The Sisterhood Band, Tyminski, and many, many more.
This year promises to be one of the best yet thanks to live performances from the sensational Sarah Darling, who just wrapped her latest headlining UK tour, and the supremely talented Robert Vincent joining headliner Lauren Alaina on the bill.
