One of the Tamworth Country Music Festival’s most popular events, LIVE AND LOUD will be back in 2020.

It returns to Toyota Park on Thursday 23rd January 2020

Melanie Dyer (pictured) and Caitlyn Shadbolt will headline the show, with Kaylen’s Rain plus recent Australia Country Chart toppers Darlinghurst and The Buckleys also leading attractions.

We were massively excited about Dyer’s new single ‘Memphis T-Shirt’ when released last week.

It’s already proving to be very popular on streaming services along with both country and pop radio programmers.

Shadbolt returns to the LIVE & LOUD stage with a new single titled ‘Bones’ due for release on January 17, 202o following the ARIA Country #1 result for her debut album, Songs On My Sleeve in 2017.

Darlinghurst recently spent 4 weeks at #1 on The Music Network’s country airplay chart with their debut single ‘Sorry Won’t Get You Back.’

The Buckley’s also topped the same chart with ‘Daydream’ – a song which has also achieved some recent pop radio love.

Toyota Country Music Festival Manager Barry Harley says if you like it live and you like it loud this is a night not to be missed.

“Featuring some of the best, emerging and established modern country artists the LIVE AND LOUD concert is a highlight on the Festival calendar,” he says.

“Being one hundred percent absolutely free, it’s the perfect opportunity for those who want to experience true contemporary country music to do so on the biggest stage under the stars in the home of country music.”

The concert will also feature Glen Harrison, Leigha Moore, Juliet Oliver, Sophia Chesworth, and Jessica Emily Odgers.

And we are told there’s one more big announcement still to come.

In other news, it was also announced this week that Adam Brand will headline the festival’s opening concert.

The Tamworth Country Music Festival takes place from Friday, January 17th through to Sunday, January 26th. For more information, head to
