A festival that is making a name for itself

Groundwater Country Music Festival is Australia’s fastest growing country music festival and is indicative of the growing appeal of country music in Australia.

Launched in 2012 as the Broadbeach Country Music Festival, the festival was rebranded as Groundwater Country Music Festival in 2018. Groundwater is a common denominator in bringing people together. It reflects Australia’s unique culture, drawing from both the Aboriginal people’s close spiritual connection with the groundwater, as well as the farming community’s reliance on groundwater for survival. Groundwater reflects the innate culture of the Australian people who use the rivers, lakes, streams, and oceans as a central part of life.

Groundwater Country Music Festival invites visitors to come and stay in our city for 3 days of rocking country music that will shake the earth and swell the spirit.


Groundwater has been recognised by both the Australian and Queensland Tourism Awards winning a number of prestigious awards across the years:

Gold Winner

Festival & Events at the 2019 Australian Tourism Awards 

Gold Winner

Festival & Events at the 2018 Queensland Tourism Awards

Silver Winner

Festival & Events at the 2017 Queensland Tourism Awards

Silver Winner

Festival & Events at the 2016 Queensland Tourism Awards


Groundwater Country Music Festival is proudly produced by the Broadbeach Alliance, a team of 10 who, with the assistance of their board and the City of Gold Coast, communicate with all of the businesses, accommodation houses and residents of Broadbeach to ensure positive results for the area.

One of the responsibilities of the business is to create and manage world class events for Broadbeach including, yet not limited to the Blues on Broadbeach Music Festival, Groundwater Country Music Festival, Gold Coast Superhero Weekend and the Broadbeach Christmas Carols.

Broadbeach Alliance was responsible for the birth of Blues on Broadbeach in 2002 and has been coordinating and operating the event ever since.

Broadbeach Alliance is committed to hosting environmentally responsible events, as such we work very closely with event partners to plan and implement festivals which reflect green event best practices.
