Destination Tamworth to bring mini-festival to Sydney this month
Organisers behind the Tamworth Country Music Festival, including Destination Tamworth and Chris Watson Travel, will bring “a taste” of the popular event to Sydney for the first time.
Tamworth Comes To Town will be held in Rydges World Square on May 28-29, with a lineup including Travis Collins, Adam Harvey, Andrew Farriss, Lyn Bowtell, Amber Lawrence, Luke O’Shea, Andrew Swift and more.
The program will also bring together dancing, songwriting sessions, a country music cruise.
“The idea behind Tamworth comes to town was to promote what Tamworth has to offer, showcase the incredible range of live music that can be found around the city each January, and bring tourism back to Sydney’s CBD,” organiser Chris Watson said in a statement.
The 2021 Tamworth Country Music Festival, usually taking place in the early months of the year, was cancelled back in September due to the pandemic. The festival will return next January.
“January 2022 marks a momentous 50 years of the Tamworth Country Music Festival, and with many Festival goers hailing from Sydney, this event is the perfect way to kick start the celebrations and continue to cement Tamworth’s position as the home of country music.
“There will be a lot to celebrate at next year’s festival,” TCMF manager Barry Harley said.
Tickets to Tamworth Comes To Town are available through Trybooking.
