For country music fans in the know, checking the Toyota FanZone line-up during Festival is often the first point-of-call when deciding where they’ll see their favourite artists.

Every day during Festival, Toyota FanZone will be in full swing, bringing country music to the heart of Tamworth. It’s the perfect place for musical discovery because it’s where you’ll find some of the biggest names in country music playing alongside some of the finest emerging talent. And best of all – it’s free!

Toyota Country Music Festival Manager, Mr Barry Harley says that not only is Toyota FanZone a great venue for fans to enjoy up close and personal performances with their favourite artists, but it is also a great way to catch country music’s next biggest stars.

“Toyota FanZone is a great place to kick back, relax and take a break from the hustle and bustle of Peel Street, while enjoying live entertainment. 

“With different artists performing every 15 to 30 minutes, this stage certainly offers country music fans a huge variety of music to choose from. The performances are free, and fans often get the opportunity to meet their favourite stars following their performance,” he said.

While at FanZone, visitors also have the opportunity to purchase the latest country music CDs and merchandise.

This year’s line-up includes Golden Guitar Award winners: The McClymonts, James Blundell, Travis Collins and Amber Lawrence, sharing the bill with some of the 2019 Toyota Golden Guitar Award Finalists: The Wolfe Brothers, Andrew Swift, Catherine Britt, Brad Cox, Imogen Clarke, Judah Kelly, Fanny Lumsden, The Hillbilly Goats and Kristy Cox.
