Byron VIP Travel

Murwillumbah Country Roots Festival

Murwillumbah is a thriving country town in northern NSW Australia smack bang in between Byron Bay and The Gold Coast. This natural wonderland, traditional Bundjgalung land - has the majestic Tweed River running through it and is guarded by a world heritage backdrop with lush rainforests, creeks and waterfalls and world class beaches 20 minutes away! Wollumbin (Mt. Warning) towers over the town that is now made up of sugarcane farmers, country born families and city folk who have moved up here to live what is now a cosmopolitan country lifestyle.

Kasey Chambers

Country Music Star

With Byron Bay and Nimbin as neighbouring towns, the festival is going to offer music and culture a little left of the traditional country music festivals. They will of course be showcasing Australia's favourite country music artists, as well as Australia's finest Roots artists. And a strong local music presence because we are so lucky to have such talented artists here!!

Here's what the organisers have to say about the festival...

"We believe Country music and Roots music have a common connection. That is the love of the land and music that comes from its roots and that come from the soul."

"To go with our diverse region, we will have food and market stalls that reflect. We are very lucky here to have one of the healthiest and Greenest environments in the country, so our food will be spectacular and our waste management and recycling standards will be high!"

The festival will be held over 4 days at the Murwillumbah Show Grounds with over 40 acts. Festival Friday evening will be the festival opening night, where we will be featuring the finalists of our talent quest, which we will be launching after Easter 2015. This will be featured as well as some of our finest artists.

Festival Saturday, Sunday and Monday will be held in the Murwillumbah Showgrounds where there will be 4 fantastic stages!!! There will be the main stage in the show arena, the shed stage for all the stomping music, the Opry stage that will feature Bluegrass and awesome old timey music and the buskers stage that will feature our choice buskers.

The first 3500 4 day passes sold will be in the running to win a brand new UTE!!! have to be at the festival on Monday to claim your prize!!!!

To sum up for now...we are creating a world class festival right here in Murwillumbah and we want you to come! We guarantee that you won't be disappointed and you will want to come back to this gorgeous colourful region and spectacular music!!
