Busking in Tamworth
Every year over 55,000 visitors flock to Tamworth to enjoy the biggest music festival in the Southern Hemisphere – the Tamworth Country Music Festival. For over 40 years Tamworth has been the place where Country Music stars are born and dreams are made.
Each January, the streets of Tamworth are lined with over 600 buskers performing live and entertaining crowds of thousands. Peel Street (Tamworth’s main street) has become known as the ‘Boulevard of Dreams’ where stars such as Keith Urban, Troy Cassar-Daley, Kasey Chambers and Beccy Cole were discovered and started their careers.
