The History of Country on the Coast Festival

The History of Country on the Coast Festival Welcome to the Country on the Coast blog! Today, we're taking a trip down memory lane to explore the rich history of our beloved festival. From humble beginnings to becoming a must-attend event for country music enthusiasts, the Country on the Coast Festival has come a long way. It all started with a vision to bring the magic of country music to the beautiful coastal town of Southsea, Hampshire, UK. The founders wanted to create a festival that celebrated the spirit of community, family, and good old-fashioned country music. And so, the Country on the Coast Festival was born. In the early years, the festival was a small gathering of local artists and country music fans. The main stage was a modest setup, but the energy and passion were undeniable. As word spread about the festival's unique atmosphere and incredible performances, more and more people flocked to Southsea to experience it for themselves. Fast forward to today, and the Country on the Coast Festival has become a highlight of the country music calendar. The main stage has grown in size, featuring some of the biggest names in the industry. From rising stars to seasoned veterans, our lineup never fails to impress.

This intimate setting allows attendees to get up close and personal with musicians, creating a truly special experience.

From cowboy boots to handmade jewelry, there's something for everyone. And let's not forget about the glitter face painting and tattoos! It's a chance to let your inner country spirit shine. Of course, no festival is complete without delicious food and refreshing drinks. Our food stalls offer a variety of festival favorites, from mouthwatering burgers to tasty tacos. And for those looking to quench their thirst, there's a wide selection of beverages, including ice-cold beer and refreshing cocktails. But it's not just about the music and the shopping.
