Following a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19, county music made a splash in the Gold Coast with the return of the Groundwater Country Music Festival (CMF).

The three-day festival took place between the 12th and 14th of November where more than 45 Aussie artists played to a crowd of country music fans.

After a tough year with many locked inside due to COVID, the opportunity to get out and experience some live music was too good to miss.

Festival Director, Mark Duckworth, was thrilled with the event saying: “It was great to see Groundwater return to the Gold Coast and to be able to welcome back our country music family.”

“For many artists, Groundwater is an opportunity to celebrate and share new music releases and chart successes from the year.

“Groundwater 2021 has been more important than ever for Australian country music as it’s been one of the few festivals remaining on the calendar.

“We are hopeful to have seen over 35,000 visitors throughout Broadbeach over the weekend, with many loyal fans returning, plus many new fans who have come to experience a weekend of incredible live country music.”

Rising country-pop star, Melanie Dyer also expressed her gratefulness of the event saying: “While it’s been hard not being able to gig much over the last 18 months, I’ve really thrown myself back into writing for my next album.”

“It was so awesome to sing my new single ‘Run Out Of Road’ for the first time with my band at Groundwater…and also play a few other unreleased songs that will be coming in the new year.”

Groundwater CMF has been announced for 2022 and will take place between the 28th and the 30th of October.
