Groundwater Country Music Festival announces first lineup for 2018

Groundwater Country Music Festival, which was formerly known as the Broadbeach Country Music Festival, has today revealed the first round of artists set to hit the stage at the event in July.

Some incredible country acts are featured on the line-up, including major award winners at the recent Golden Guitars The McClymonts as well as US country stars Granger Smith, Lillie Mae and Joshua Hedley.

They will join Aussie icon Bill Chambers, multi-award winners Adam Hervey and O’Shea, crowd favourites Troy Kemp and Casey Barnes, and many more.


Festival Director Mark Duckworth said they are proud to release such a strong first lineup.

“Our festival has quickly gained a reputation for bringing together a collection of artists that work together to create a genuine festival feel. This line-up combines the best of Australian talent from the mainstream to the fringes of our land whilst fusing them with the authentic sounds of Nashville and Texas,” he said.

Broadbeach Alliance Chief Executive Officer Jan McCormick said the festival will no doubt enjoy great success again this year.

“In only its sixth year, the newly named Groundwater Country Music Festival has grown exponentially, with 2017 seeing over 54,000 people descending on Broadbeach to witness some of the most celebrated Australian and international artists.  2018 is no exception and with this fabulous line up we know it will be an incredible three days.”

Here is the full first lineup announcement:
