The Shepparton based event will still feature the same coveted line-up, headlined by Lee Kernaghan, with special guests Brad Cox, Casey Barnes, Felicity Urquhart, Andrew Swift, The Davidson Brothers and some of the most exciting up-and-coming acts on the live scene today.
There will also be whip-cracking demonstrations and line—dancing, as well as food trucks a smokehouse barbecue, rides, market stalls and on-site bars.
Tickets purchased for the October event are valid for the new date.
Brothers and event organisers for Goulburn Valley Country Festival, and its sister event the Gippsland Country Music Festival, Aidan and Rhett McLaren, are delighted that all the artists from the original show announcement have been able to move to the new date.
“We’re so thankful to all of the amazing artists and their teams for being so flexible regarding the date move, and overall, just being so keen to do whatever they could to get to Shepparton to make the show happen,” said Aidan.
“Ideally, we would have loved to be able to stick to the original date, but for obvious reasons, that wasn’t going to be possible. We had the option of postponing the festival to next October, but we’ve been so overwhelmed by the positive response from the Goulburn Valley community with so many people buying tickets and looking forward to the event, that we really wanted to make it happen as soon as possible.”
One of the driving forces behind moving the event into the start of 2022 was to ensure music fans could get back to seeing their favourite artists live as soon as safely possible.
“One thing we definitely know is that people are really missing experiencing live music and can’t wait for live concerts to come back,” said Aidan.
“For many music lovers, including myself, this has been the longest time we’ve gone in our lives without seeing a show. For many artists, it’s been the longest they’ve ever gone in their careers without playing a show. When the live scene comes back, the positivity, excitement and energy at those first few shows is going to be something really incredible. I can’t wait to see that energy in Shepparton come April.”
Tickets are still on sale for the rescheduled date of the Goulburn Valley Country Festival in April 2022.
