Toyota Country Music Festival Manager, Mr. Barry Harley says the theme for this year’s Toyota Park concerts is similar to 2017 with a focus on a large variety of ‘cameo’ performances from a lot of acts rather than long concerts of just one act.
“Having a focus on more cameo performances ensures festival goers have the opportunity to experience our country music stars, but also the many emerging, new and popular artists in one place, showcasing the diversity of country music genres we have here in Australia.”
The 46th Toyota Country Music Festival, Tamworth will be held from Friday, 19 to Sunday, 28 January 2018 with the 46th Toyota Golden Guitar Awards on Saturday 27 January 2018 at the Tamworth Regional Entertainment and Conference Centre.
