Join in on KIX Live at Groundwater Country Music Festival!

17 October 2023

Groundwater Country Music Festival 2023 is a special year for us. Because not only are we celebrating 10 years of country music on the Gold Coast, but we’ve also got a special treat for country fans!

Taking place Saturday morning from 11:45AM – 12:45PM at The Kurrawa Big Top, we’re thrilled to have a KIX Live at Groundwater Songwriters session. In collaboration with our good mates and Community Partner KIX Country, this special session will take a deeper dive into the art that is country music songwriting.

Featuring country favourites like Jackson Dean, Adam Harvey, Amber Lawrence, Sara Berki and the 2023 Groundwater KIX-Start Winner Denvah, it’s going to be a ball! 

Each artist will be taking turns performing and giving us an insight behind their creative processes. Hosted by KIX Country Director Justin Thompson, the session is definitely a must-see for the Saturday!
