This very special event will document the evolution of the country’s longest running festival from its modest beginnings in 1972 into the biggest festival in Australia today. The musical journey will include some of country music’s brightest stars along with rare video footage of the pioneers who helped establish Tamworth as the undisputed home of Australian country music.
This one-off event will not only showcase the best in country music but will honour the visionaries who worked to establish a festival that created an industry that celebrates Australian artists and their music, all with a distinctive sound that has had a permanent and lasting impact on our culture.
COVID-19 has had a major impact on artists, musicians, and their crew with many experiencing more than 12 months without work therefore profits from the concert will go to Support Act, Australia’s only charity delivering crisis relief services to artists, crew, and music workers as a result
of ill health, injury, a mental health problem, or some other crisis that impacts on their ability to work in music.
