Groundwater Country Music Festival adds more artists to an already stellar lineup

Groundwater Country Music Festival (GCMF) has added more huge international and national names to an already impressive lineup for 2022. 

With its second artist announcement release, Groundwater CMF is gearing up for a long weekend escape (28-30 October) of mega proportions for country music fans on the Gold Coast.

Boasting an incredible lineup of beloved international and national country music artists, 2022 is shaping up as a not-to-miss festival. 

Now based in Nashville, sensational country-pop duo Seaforth returns to native soil for Groundwater CMF in their first show back home and their only Queensland performance.

Joining Seaforth on their voyage from the US will be the chart-topping Aussies Kristy Cox and Dozzi.

Beyond these wonderful homecomings, be prepared to be staggered by the exceptional talent now confirmed to complete the already impressive lineup. Big names like Andrew Farriss, and New Zealand favourite Tami Neilson who is back for her only Australian performance this year, in addition to Andrew Swift, Jayne Denham, and The Viper Creek Band will be augmenting an already amazing bill! See the full lineup here.

Groundwater CMF prides itself in its unwavering ethos to support and nurture emerging talent and is proud to be featuring 2022 Star Maker winner Max Jackson in the lineup.

Max will be joining an incredible alumni of previous Star Maker winners: Travis Collins, Kirsty Lee Akers, and Kaylee Bell. Plus of course, last year’s inaugural KIX start winner Bella Mackenzie.

There really is just so much to love about Groundwater CMF and the opportunities it provides emerging talent throughout Australia.

Festival Director Mark Duckworth said the Groundwater team were stoked to be able to add some extraordinary international talent to the 2022 festival program and welcome home some of our own homegrown stars as well.

Mark Duckworth, Festival Director:

I can’t wait to kick back and enjoy some incredible live music and to share it all with our loyal festival fans on the beautiful Gold Coast. This is going to one of our best country music parties yet!

Seaforth, Country-pop duo:

Our Australian tour has been a long time coming so we can’t wait to get back home and kick off our run of shows at Groundwater CMF. It’s our only show in QLD so we’d love to see ya!

The new additions to the lineup will join already announced Groundwater CMF 2022 artists including country icons Fanny Lumsden, Travis Collins and Catherine Britt. 

With such a huge program of country music legends, and up and coming stars, country music lovers are encouraged to book their Gold Coast accommodation soon so they don’t miss this out on this hugely popular free festival. Why not make a long weekend of it and enjoy everything this holiday mecca has to offer.
