Tamworth Country Music Festival

If country music and a festival atmosphere is your thing then Tamworth Country Music Festival is unmissable.

Tamworth claims to be the largest music festival in the Southern Hemisphere whilst Forbes Magazine rated it as number 8 in a list of the World’s Coolest Music Festivals. Heady praise indeed. One thing is indisputable: there is no better place to get your fill of country music.

This year Tamworth plays host to a whopping 2,200 events and 4,000 different performances in 80 different venues not forgetting the CMAA Country Music Awards of Australia that crowns the festival - where the who’s who of Australian country music gathers with fans to see who will win the famous Golden Guitars.

Also featuring local talent, buskers and other competitions, the festival has something for everyone. The festival is spread over nine days, and visitors have several options to choose from in terms of accommodation.
