We’ve successfully operated a similar styled event in Glasgow called ‘Country on the Clyde’ for the last 6 years and felt the time was right to expand to Ireland. We view it as an unofficial complementary afternoon show to Country 2 Country that takes place in the evening for country fans that will descend on Belfast the weekend of 9th & 10th March.”
