Groundwater Country Music Festival 2019

Groundwater Country Music Festival is returning for its 7th year with a bumper line-up including reigning King and Queen of Australian Country Music Lee Kernaghan and Beccy Cole and the big winners at the 2019 Golden Guitars, The Wolfe Brothers plus the cream of the crop of the Australian country music scene.

Groundwater is Australia’s fastest growing music festival and last week it was announced the event has been elevated to ‘major status’ by Tourism and Events Queensland (TEQ) due to its importance to Queensland’s economy and significant growth in generating visitation to the Gold Coast. The popularity of the country music genre is at an all-time high in Australia, reflected in the enormous growth of Groundwater and the broad cross section of age groups attending the festival.

Assistant Tourism Industry Development Minister Meaghan Scanlon said TEQ had upgraded the festival’s status after the 2018 edition generated more than $5 million for the state’s economy – a 25 per cent increase from 2017.

“Since the event’s inception in 2013, it’s grown from strength-to-strength. Last year more than 63,000 people attended the event, generating nearly 30,000 visitor nights for the Gold Coast,” she said.

This FREE festival will be held July 26-28 in Broadbeach on the stunning Gold Coast through its bars, restaurants, streets and parks. There will be more than 110 incredible live music performances with over 130 hours of free live entertainment. Click here to view the 2019 Groundwater sizzle reel.
