Mega Second Lineup Announced!

16 August 2022

Groundwater Country Music Festival (CMF) is gearing up for a long weekend escape of mega proportions for country music fans to the Gold Coast. Boasting an impressive lineup of beloved international and national country music artists, 2022 is shaping up as a not-to-miss festival.

All roads lead to Groundwater CMF! Now based in Nashville, sensational country-pop duo Seaforth return 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 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!

Check out the full second lineup below!

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 as well. 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 to emerging talent throughout Australia.  


Major Events Gold Coast Director of Events and Festivals, Mark Duckworth, said,

“We’re stoked to be able to add some extraordinary international talent to our 2022 Groundwater CMF program and welcome home some of our own homegrown stars as well.”

“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.”


With such a huge lineup 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.
