50th Anniversary Concert New Date and Artists Announced!

11 February 2022

Despite the rescheduling of the Tamworth Country Music Festival, organisers of the highly anticipated 50th anniversary concert can confirm majority of artists will return in April, along with a few new stars.

Some of the big names announced today include Kasey Chambers, John Williamson, Troy Cassar-Daley, Graeme Connors, Beccy Cole, Sara Storer, Adam Harvey, The Wolfe Brothers, Shane Nicholson, James Blundell, Felicity Urquhart & Josh Cunningham, Chad Morgan, Fanny Lumsden, Catherine Britt and many more.

Tickets will sell fast for this very special event which will now be held at the Tamworth Regional Entertainment Conference Centre (TRECC) on Thursday 21st April commencing at 12pm.

The concert will document the evolution of the country’s longest running festival from its modest beginnings in 1972 into what is now the biggest festival in Australia today.

As well as many of country music’s brightest stars, the show will feature vision and commentary about the pioneers who helped establish Tamworth as the undisputed home of Australian country music.

This one-off event will not only showcase the best in country music, but will honour the visionaries who worked  to establish a festival that created an industry that celebrates Australian artists and their music, all with a distinctive sound that has had a permanent and lasting influence on our culture.

COVID-19 has had a major impact on artists, musicians, and their crew with many experiencing almost two years  of very little work, therefore profits from the concert will go to Support Act, Australia’s only charity delivering crisis relief services to artists, crew, and music workers because of ill health, injury, a mental health problem, or some other crisis that impacts on their ability to work in music.
