The inaugural “Nashville Meets London” festival, which took place in August of this year, drew thousands of festivalgoers to the Canary Wharf estate that were actively engaged in the show…singing, dancing and many baring Country-lifestyle attire. The event drew an impressive number of people and left an overwhelmingly positive response among UK-based Country music fans and locals.
The site of the annual festival, Canada Square Park, is located in the heart of Canary Wharf and is surrounded by award-winning gardens and over 300 shops, bars and restaurants. Canary Wharf is located in the former London Docklands. For the past ten years, Canary Wharf has hosted the “Canary Wharf Jazz Festival”, which is largest free jazz festival in the UK, and has a long history of promoting arts and culture throughout its estate.
“Nashville Meets London” is co-produced by Canary Wharf Arts + Events, Peter Conway Management and Nashville-based agency, The AristoMedia Group. Baylen Leonard, BBC Radio 2 Country DJ, is the artistic program consultant.
