Australian country festival favourite Steve Forde will return to Australia this May to perform at the Big Country Festival in Berry, in regional New South Wales.

The singer of the country hits ‘Rodeo Freak,’ ‘Summer;s Little Angel’ and ‘Another Man’ is one the headliners for what will be the festival’s second year.

Forde last released an album in 2010, titled Hurricane.

Other than a performance at CMC Rocks Qld in 2017, Forde has barely played a show since that time and has spent most of his time in the USA, where he is now based.

Along with Forde, Adam Brand, The McClymonts, Adam Harvey, Shannon Noll, The Wolfe Brothers, Brad Cox, Amber Lawrence, Casey Barnes, Melanie Dyer, Missy Lancaster, Darlinghurst, Benn Gun and Kevin Sullivan will perform at the festival.

The festival will take place at Berry Showground.

Situated in the Shoalhaven Coast wine region on the New South Wales South Coast, Berry is a two hour drive or train trip from Sydney.

The inaugural Big Country Festival in 2019 completely sold out.

The event organiser, Jack Stewart, said that he and his production team are excited to be returning with an even bigger festival in 2020.

“It was incredible to see a sell-out response to Big Country’s inaugural year,” he says.

“The event is set to provide a much-needed boost to the local tourism economy after what has been a tough Summer.”

“We’ve been hard at work putting together an offering to top 2019 and between our captivating artists, bull riders, line dancers, campground, kid’s entertainment and food and market stalls, we can’t wait to see what you think,” he continues.

Tickets for the Big Country Festival go on sale on February 13. For more details go to
