Broadbeach gears up for Country Music Festival

LOVE country music?

Well dust off your akubra because the hugely popular Broadbeach Country Music Festival rides into town this weekend.

Following the success of its inaugural year in 2013, the festival is back for another year with three massive days and nights of free entertainment planned from June 20-22.


Some of Australia’s best country musicians are set to perform, including 25 time Golden Guitar winner Troy Cassar-Daley, ARIA nominated Adam Harvey and multi-award winning Amber Lawrence.

The program also boasts big names such as Paul Costa, 2014 Golden Guitar winners Pete Denahy and ‘Best New Talent’ Ashleigh Dallas, festival favourites Harmony James, Dozzi, Harry Hookey, The Viper Creek Band, The Bostocks, local favourite Casey Barnes and many more over the jam-packed weekend.

Tamborine Mountain resident Thor Phillips will kick things off on the main stage from 3.00pm on Friday afternoon.

In what has been hailed as ‘divine timing’, the weekend will also see the Gold Coast Suns take on the Geelong Cats and the Gold Coast Titans clash with St George Illawarra Dragons. To capitalise on the mix of music and mad-sporting fans, free shuttle busses will leave from the heart of the festival to ferry spectators to and from each of the football codes.

So trade your swag for swagger, spruce up your boots, and head on in to Broadbeach this weekend!
