Groundwater Country Music Festival (CMF) has announced a three-year partnership with Drought Angels, a charity run by big hearts that originated in rural Queensland for rural Australians.
The partnership between Groundwater CMF and Drought Angels will help raise funds to provide much needed care and relief to farmers and their communities across the nation, something that hits particularly close to home for many country music artists, fans, and the broader community.
“Drought Angels is excited to be involved once again with Groundwater CMF,” said CEO & Founder of Drought Angels Natasha Johnston. “We have had a presence at Groundwater CMF since 2019 so to be named the Charity Partner for the next three years is very exciting.”
“This partnership is crucial in helping us raise awareness of the struggles our primary producers face due to natural disasters including drought, floods, fires, and plagues. Our Aussie farmers are doing it tough, so all funds raised from Groundwater CMF will help primary producers throughout Australia.”
Major Events Gold Coast Director of Festivals and Events Mark Duckworth said the Groundwater CMF team was proud to be able to partner with and support the charity.
“Drought Angels does so much incredible work supporting our Australian farmers and their communities, and we couldn’t think of a charity better suited to GMCF,” said Mark.
“Our festival is all about community and bringing people together through country music. Regional Australia has done it really tough for many years now and anything we can do as a festival community to help Drought Angels continue to provide that much-needed support we are more than happy to do.”
Groundwater CMF, now in its 9th year, is a one-of-a-kind family festival that brings some of the biggest country music talent to Broadbeach on the Gold Coast to entertain and connect with fans from across Australia. Spread across multiple stages in the parks, streets, and venues of this beautiful coastal precinct, it is an experience not to miss.
This spring, fans of country music get an opportunity to soak in the beautiful coastline and enjoy a boogie in the sun, great food, drinks, and company while supporting Drought Angels’ important work; and with a stacked A-list roster there’s no doubt that this year’s Groundwater CMF is going to be a party to remember.
Festival goers will be able to make a donation through festival merchandise point of sale or via a dedicated Groundwater CMF and Drought Angels webpage.
Groundwater CMF is supported by the Queensland Government via Tourism and Events Queensland and is a feature on the It’s Live! in Queensland events calendar.
