The Broadbeach Country Music Festival is the new kid on the block when it comes to major country events, but is definitely making an impact judging by the lineup they have managed to secure. Then there is the awesome fact that it is a free event, so all you need to do is get to the Gold Coast in the middle of winter where they are expecting maximums somewhere in the mid-20's, and plenty of blue skies and sunshine; and then all you have to do is enjoy some great country music.
Last night (26th July), the festival was officially launched with Troy Cassar-Daley performing in a Facebook Live event:

Performances were recorded from the KIX Live stage at the 2021 Groundwater Country Music Festival.
In what must have been quite the surprise, Troy Cassar-Daley found himself an univited house guest over the weekend. A brown tree snake managed to find its way into the Cassar-Daley household and find a nice cosy spot inside a cupboard. A few questions immediate spring to mind, 'how does a snake get into a house and then a cupboard?' and 'how much to buy a new house?'
Thankfully, the Things I Carry Around singer is a lot better with snakes because he called in the expert snake catcher who retrieved the animal and released it safely back into the wild.
The year 2004 saw the birth of the Urban Country Music Festival and ever since, festival-goers from all over Australia have been able to enjoy the heart of country music in their own backyard.
Since inception, the support of Moreton Bay Regional Council, Queensland Events and many local businesses and organisations has played a substantial role in the Urban Country dream coming to fruition. The three day festival continues to grow, with spectacular talent, fantastic entertainment and an experience like no other.
Urban is like no other festival experience in the country. With a distinct mix of artists, it is set amongst a picture perfect gathering of art, food, craft and all things for the 'musicurious' festival-goer.
