Dixie Fields to take their second edition online on July 11
The second edition of Dixie Fields festival will be taking place online, with a number of exciting artists booked in for live streams. The now virtual festival will take place on July 11 and tickets are available here.
Jackson Michelson will be returning to the festival after excelling last year, while there will also be streams from the likes of Kezia Gill, Stevie O’Connor and Gareth Nugent in addition to local Essex artists such as Hannah Paris, Lucy Blu and The Jackson Line.
As well as that, Two Ways Home, Jessica Lynn, Royal South, Kevin McGuire, Ryan Robinette, Brittany McLamb, Emma & Jolie, Gary Quinn, Scott Nicholls, Honey County and Poppy Fardell will also be performing.
Speaking about the news, Operations Director Georgie Thorogood explained that while she was devastated to be cancelling the festival in its normal form as a result of the pandemic, she is ecstatic that the wonders of technology have allowed people to still enjoy the fun.
“We were devastated to have to cancel the real Dixie Fields festival for this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, but we are thrilled to be able to still engage with our audience and compile a simply stunning line up of real country music, which can be streamed directly to you, wherever you are,” Thorogood said. “Although a virtual festival is hugely different to the amazing live event held last year, we are so excited to be able to offer this to fans across the World, not only the UK.
“Our friends and followers have already been discussing how best to decorate their gardens and homes for the event and we can’t wait to see the pictures.”
After springing up last year, Dixie Fields was considered a success and there was much anticipation as to how their second year would live up to the expectations they set.
