This country music festival has become known for being a whole weekend full of excitement,,entertainment, fun and one of the best Country music weekends in New Zealand hosted at the stunning Tauherenikau race course.
Legendary band The Warratahs are set to headline the 2020 festival, bringing their classic Kiwi style to our Saturday night show.
Returning after a great reception in 2019, Bevan Gardiner (of John Denver tribute fame) alongside James Davy will perform some of the legend’s greatest hits as well as plenty of country music classics.
Joining them over the course of the weekend we will have New Zealand Country Entertainer of the Year for 2018, Ainslie Allen. All the way from Nelson, duo Dust and Gold (who opened for UB40) will be hitting the stage along with Jackie Bristow who has returned home from Nashville to enjoy some time in the homeland.
Tui award nominees, Melissa & The Dr will be playing a collection of stripped-down classic country duets as well as alt-country and Americana tunes and local artist Sue Dyson will be playing tracks from her debut EP. Last but definitely not least, Grandaddy of Country, Wayne R. Heath will play his Nashville to New Zealand show that celebrates his, more than, 50 years in show business.
For the first time ever the prestige classic car rally, Cruise Martinborough, will be on site for the Saturday afternoon from 1:30pm to 5:30pm. Guests will have the chance to see hundreds of classic and muscle cars while enjoying our afternoon show.
