Baylen Leonard, Creative Director of The Long Road, says, “We couldn’t be more excited to share our first announcement of artists for TLR22! There’s something for every music lover across our four stages, from firm favourites to new discoveries, it’s all about showcasing just how broad country, Americana, and roots music is. Plus now that we’ve moved to the August bank holiday, there’s even more time to enjoy the beautiful setting of Stanford Hall in the Leicestershire countryside. We can’t wait to welcome you back next year!”
The Cadillac Three said of their headline slot, “We are so excited to get back over to the UK during festival season in 2022 & to be playing The Long Road for the first time! We’ve had so many friends tell us how great a time it is. We can’t wait to bring some Country Fuzz to y’all next summer!”
