A Country Music Festival on the Gold Coast?!

15 September 2023

Now celebrating 10 years of country music on the Gold Coast, Groundwater Country Music Festival (CMF) is unlike any other country festival you’ve been to before!

Set in the bustling precinct of Broadbeach right in the heart of the Gold Coast, Groundwater CMF brings the country vibes we know and love to the big city and here’s why it’s a match made in country heaven. 

Go for a swim, then catch a set!

With festival stages located in the parks, streets and various local restaurants and bars within Broadbeach, coming to Groundwater CMF means you’ll naturally experience all that the Gold Coast has to offer, as if you were on a coastal getaway. 

Located just steps away from the famous Kurrawa Beach, you can take a morning dip in the ocean, get a sun tan then head straight to the front row to catch your favourite country artist. How’s that for a festival itinerary?!

And when you’re feeling peckish, you can head to the massive selection of Broadbeach restaurants and bars to grab a bite to eat. From pub feeds to high-end cuisine, the menu is endless when you’re at Groundwater CMF.


After a night of boot kickin’ fun, all you want is a comfortable bed to sleep in so you’re energised to do it all over again.

Good thing Broadbeach has a tonne of accommodation to suit all budgets. Think hot showers, soft pillows, and ocean views, all just a few minutes walk away from the main festival stages where acts like Lee Kernaghan, Jackson Dean, Casey Barnes, Amber Lawrence and more will be performing each night. Just imagine heading downstairs from your hotel room and having the festival stage right in front of you. Unreal!


Being a popular spot for locals and tourists alike, Broadbeach isn’t all fun and games, though that’s certainly what many of us care about the most!

From GPs to dentists, physios and massage parlours, you don’t need to put your life on hold while you’re at Groundwater CMF. You can take this opportunity while you’re in the city to get plenty of life admin done without missing any of your favourite acts. 

Who would’ve thought going to a country music festival could be this convenient?

Have we convinced you yet to come party with us at Groundwater CMF 2023? With the festivities kicking off from Friday 20 October until Sunday 22 October, now’s the time to start planning if you haven’t already.

There’s no tickets needed so all you need to worry about is where you’re staying, who you’re coming with and which acts are your must-sees! Check out the full lineup for 2023 below!
