Tamworth Country Music Festival, 20 – 29 January 2017

This year all roads lead to Tamworth for the annual Tamworth Country Music Festival. Held from Friday January 20th to Sunday 29 January 2017, the Tamworth Country Music Festival is the largest music festival in the southern hemisphere and one of the top 10 music festivals in the world.

Tamworth Country Music Festival

The variety of country music is endless during the country music festival with over 2000 events and 4,000 different performances or gigs in 80 different venues. There are over 600 buskers in Peel Street alone, providing a diverse range of entertainment each day – it’s no wonder Tamworth attracts over 50,000 visitors during the festival.

The pinnacle event of the Tamworth Music Festival is the Country Music Awards of Australia, when the top Australian country music artists gather with country music fans to see who will win the famous Golden Guitar Awards. The Awards are held on the second Saturday of the festival at the Tamworth Regional Entertainment and Conference Centre.
