Community invited to give their feedback on 2023 Toyota Country Music Festival

27 March 2023

Tamworth residents and the wider community are invited to give their feedback on this year’s Toyota Country Music Festival, Tamworth with a community feedback session set to be held next week.

The session will include a panel made up of venue operators, members of Tamworth Regional Council, accommodation providers, as well as the Tamworth Business Chamber, with the aim to discuss this year’s event and look at opportunities to improve it.

Toyota Country Music Festival Manager, Barry Harley says the meeting is a chance for anyone in the community to share their views and thoughts on this year’s Festival and discuss ideas for future events. 

“The Tamworth Country Music Festival is the region’s biggest event and critical to the local economy,” he said.

“It is vital for all sectors to come together to discuss what worked, what didn’t and what we can improve moving forward, as we begin planning for the 2024 event.”

The community feedback session will compliment surveys being undertaken with industry, as well as visitor surveys undertaken by Destination NSW during the 2023 event.

“So far we’ve had great feedback from visitor surveys with satisfaction ratings above 95 per cent,” said Mr Harley.  

The community feedback session will be held at 6pm on Tuesday, 4 April in the Passchendaele Room at Tamworth Town Hall.

Those unable to attend the meeting, can also give their feedback via the Tamworth Country Music Festival website.

“For over five decades, this event has celebrated Australia’s country music industry and we want to ensure this iconic event endures another five decades,” said Mr Harley.

“I encourage everyone in the community to come along and share their views.”

Anyone wishing to speak at the community feedback session must register on the night.
