The two will be joined by Golden Guitar winners Ashleigh Dallas and the legendary band The Bushwackers, 2022 Toyota Star Maker Max Jackson, and Central West's Robbie Mortimer.
In addition to the talented acts already booked, Stock Route Music Festival will host an emerging talent competition for local acts breaking into the Australian country music scene.

“We are incredibly excited to bring back the Stock Route Music Festival next year, bigger and better than ever before,” Lazy River Estate directors Mat and Krissy Smith commented in a press release.
“Our collaboration with international artists like Dan Davidson is a testament to the festival's growing reputation. We can't wait to welcome everyone to this spectacular celebration of country music in the heart of Dubbo.”
Davidson shares the directors’ excitement, adding in a statement, “After an incredible experience at the Gympie Music Muster this year, I'm thrilled to announce my return to Australia next year for the Stock Route Festival in Dubbo. The Australian country music scene has a special place in my heart, and I can't wait to connect with the amazing fans once again.”
Collins said, “There's something magical about playing a festival in the NSW Central West, and I'm really looking forward to sharing my music with the passionate country music community out there.”
Dallas added, “I am beyond thrilled to be a part of the 2024 Stock Route Music Festival and connecting with the Dubbo region with my Songs, stories and a car load of instruments.
“I’ve heard only great things and thanks to social media I have seen wonderful videos of the previous Stock Route Festivals (let’s be honest I have had FOMO) and the atmosphere and country crowd looks like a place I am going to feel right at home. I plan on bringing a show full of energy and heart as it is a complete joy to be included in the third year of this growing and fantastic festival.”
