Highways Festival has revealed more details about the celebration of country and Americana which comes to London in May.

The two day festival will be headlined by The Cadillac Three and Brett Young.

Now organisers have confirmed new information about showcase elements outside of the main auditorium such as Country for Kids, Songwriters’ Round, Late Night Specials and Official After Show Parties alongside a brand-new photography exhibition.

The Songwriters Round will take place on Saturday afternoon, hosted by Absolute Radio Country.  This year’s Songwriters Round will feature performances from Ben Earle, BOWEN * YOUNG, Catie Offerman and Tanner Usrey.

Country for Kids also returns on the second day, hosted by UK pop-country trio Remember Monday.  The family friendly event allows children to express themselves, with no expectation to stay still or quiet.  The event is recommended for ages 4-11.

Each evening will feature an Official After Show Party in the Arena Bar.  The events will be sound tracked by Disko Cowboy.

And the Late Night Special will take place each night with Friday’s performance from Derby-born singer-songwriter Kezie Gill and Saturday’s from Remember Monday.
