Fri, 16 Jan 15 – Sun, 25 Jan 15
The Tamworth community and visiting country music enthusiasts will celebrate the Tamworth Country Music Festival.
Attracting up to 55,000 visitors to the regional city, there are more than 2,500 events held over the course of the 10-days including concerts, bush poetry, record releases and much more. On average, there are over 700 musicians (including buskers) that come to Tamworth for the Festival to enjoy the celebrations and if not already, try and create a name for themselves.
With more than 60 venues spread across the Tamworth that provide entertainment and activities during the Festival, visitors can be guaranteed there will be something on to their liking.
The Tamworth Regional community becomes involved with all aspects of the Festival from accommodation to hospitality services, banks, fuel stations and even mechanics – the local community embraces the Festival and all the visitors which come to town to celebrate this unique event.
In more recent years, there are generally about 700 musicians on hand to entertain the crowds over the 10-day long festival including all the big stars that regularly make the journey to Tamworth every January such as John Williamson, Gina Jeffreys, Troy Cassar-Daley, Sara Storer, Tania Kernaghan, Graeme Connors, Beccy Cole and Adam Brand.
