Canberra Country Music Festival 18-30 November 2011

about it sans-serif;”>The Canberra Country Music Festival was established to promote, showcase and grow Country Music (across all its sub-genres) in Australia’s national capital and surrounding regions – the largest inland market in Australia comprising over half a million people. We see the Festival as securing Country Music within the community through holding an event comprising performances, exhibitions, workshops, talent quests, dancing and industry forums. While open to all, the Festival also endeavours to provide a showcase for regional country music artists and the next generation of performers. As the last festival of the year on the country music event calendar, the Canberra Country Music Festival also has the highest level of new recording launches as performers gear up for Tamworth in the New Year. The Festival also raises funds for local non-profit community organisations as well as fostering country music in the heart of the nation!
