2011 Toyota Flood Relief Concert
All roads lead to Tamworth in January for the annual Tamworth Country Music Festival.
It's a must do event, the largest music festival in the southern hemisphere and one of the top 10 in the world.
The variety of country music is endless with over 2,200 events and 4,000 different performances or gigs in 80 different venues. There are over 600 buskers in Peel Street alone, providing a diverse range of entertainment each day, it's no wonder it attracts over 50,000 visitors.
The pinnacle event of the festival is the CMAA Country Music Awards of Australia, when the who's who of Australian country music gathers with country music fans to see who will win the famous Golden Guitar Awards. The Awards are held on the second Saturday of the festival at the Tamworth Regional Entertainment and Conference Centre.
A feature and largest event at the festival is the Toyota Free Concert for Rural Australia starring Lee Kernaghan. In 2011 the Concert held as a flood relief benefit.
