This year, the first Goulburn Valley Country Music Festival has caused such a stir that the event is back for another time.
Leaving plenty of time to work on line dancing skills and strengthen vocal pipes for a bit of yodeling, the new date is set for Saturday, April 1, 2023.
And while that coincides, it’s not an April Fool’s joke; Red Hill Entertainment is preparing to release more information, including the big names in the country that will be featured in the lineup.
Red Hill Entertainment co-founder Aidan McLaren said the festival was coming back “even bigger and better”.
“I can’t say much more than that at this point other than it’s really going to be a celebration of all things country,” he said.
“There are also a lot of local people, local businesses and community groups involved in making the event happen, and it’s wonderful that it was a success and that a lot of people can benefit from it. coming.”
The first festival started this year on Sunday 10 April.
For just one day, the Shepparton Showgrounds was awash with Akubras, camping chairs and good vibes.
The inaugural event was headlined by Lee Kernaghan, Casey Barnes and Brad Cox, along with a few localized acts to give it a rural feel.
In addition to acts, whipping demonstrations, market stalls and food and drink trucks were at the fingertips of cowboys, cowgirls and a specially designed Moo-ving Country Cow .
“We really couldn’t have asked for much more as part of our first-year event,” Mr McLaren said.
