The collaboration between one of the world’s most prolific artist/producers and a U.S. country singer songwriter merged the ‘URBAN meets COUNTRY’ themes associated with the new MINI Countryman. From on-site graffiti artists to VIP guests wandering around in wellies and Henry Holland “House of Holland” T-shirt-clad crew, the ‘MINI Countryman Open Air’ fully lived up to the brand’s quirky spirit. Warm-up acts came in the form of ‘folktronica’ musician James Yuil and Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard spinning the wheels for the lively crowd before George Lamb brought on-stage Michelle Branch for her showcase of stellar pop-tinged modern country. As well as the exclusive MINI Countryman song ‘Getaway’ making its world debut in London, the MINI Countryman also had a starring role in the world exclusive preview for the track’s music video.
