The collaboration between one of the world's most prolific artist/producers and a 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, the 'Mini Countryman Open Air' 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 Michelle Branch on-stage for her showcase of stellar pop-tinged modern country.
