The hottest shows in January are on sale now!

Tickets, are on sale now, to see some of the hottest country music stars during the 2017 Toyota Country Music Festival Tamworth.

John Williamson, Carter & Carter, Aleyce Simmonds, Felicity Urquhart, The Bushwackers and Tom Maxwell are the latest to announce their shows during 2017 Toyota Country Music Festival. They join an already amazing line-up including Lee Kernaghan, Troy Cassar-Daley and The McClymonts.

Festival Manager, Barry Harley said: “The Toyota Country Music Festival is a celebration of Australian talent. Some of Australia’s biggest country music stars launched their careers right here in Tamworth and we are really proud that the Festival continues to nurture the talent we have in this country.”

The 2017 Toyota Country Music Festival will feature over 700 artists, 2,800 events across 120 venues and Barry says his plan is to promote as much Australian talent as he can.

“Visitors to the Festival always tell us that their favourite part is seeing Aussie talent and the array of emerging artists busking in Peel Street. That’s why we try to maintain a ‘home-grown’ approach as much as we can.”

He doesn’t write off international acts though and says that it’s likely the Americana concert in Toyota Park will have an international flavour as will other shows planned during the 2017 Festival.

“We love having international artists performing here in Tamworth. It’s a great way to give fans a taste of country music from around the world, and also showcase the country music capital of Australia to the visiting artists,” says Barry.

The 2017 Toyota Country Music Festival is expecting more than 50,000 to attend the 10 day-long event in January. The Festival kicks off on Friday 20 January 2017. For further information, or to purchase tickets visit
