This announcement follows the huge news that McAlister Kemp are reuniting after a five year absence and will perform at the festival.
“We are proud to have Australia’s biggest country music stars return to Tamworth year on year to perform,” said festival director Barry Harley.
“We have been nurturing and promoting Australian country music talent for 48 years, and as we look toward celebrating 50, we hope to see more and more artists coming back to where it all began at the home of country music in Australia.”
And contrary to any whispers or rumour, the current drought across regional New South Wales will not affect the staging of the event in any form.
It will proceed as planned.
Cheers to that!
