1st Lineup announced

Put on your daisy dukes and crack out your Akubra, the moment you’ve all been waiting for is here… the 2021 Groundwater 1st lineup has been announced!

Get ready to soak up the Gold Coast sun, enjoy the iconic coastline views, and take a dip in the ocean to cool off from all the excitement elicited by a star-studded Country music lineup, this November 12-14.

This year’s festival will showcase some of the best country music artists from around Australia, including headline acts The Wolfe Brothers, Adam Harvey, and Sara Storer to Gina Jeffreys, Blake O’Connor and the Round Mountain Girls, PLUS so many more sure to have you dancing the night away.

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

“I’m so excited to be planning the November festival and bringing an array of talented Country artists back to the Gold Coast for our Groundwater CMF fans. There is just something so special about having a country music festival beachside on the Gold Coast and at Major Events Gold Coast we can’t wait to bring country back into the streets and parks of Broadbeach again in 2021.”

Tourism Minister, Stirling Hinchcliffe, is delighted that Groundwater Country Music Festival is returning to the Gold Coast with a standout line-up of talent.

“For country music fans the Gold Coast is the place to be this November,” Mr Hinchliffe said. “In 2019, the Groundwater Country Music Festival contributed more than $7 million and 33,000 visitor nights to the Gold Coast’s tourism economy. Events like the Groundwater Country Music Festival support local jobs and the Palaszczuk Government’s Economic Recovery Plan for the Gold Coast.  Groundwater is the only festival to combine top country music acts with great restaurants in the heart of Australia’s favourite holiday destination.” 


With the 1st Lineup announced, we know our Groundwater fans will be excited to escape for a tropical holiday in their own backyard this November 12-14. Make sure you get in early to secure your accommodation before it’s too late. View the Gold Coast’s impressive range of accommodation houses here.

Completely free, Groundwater Country Music Festival is a non-ticketed event presented by Major Events Gold Coast and held throughout the streets, parks, bars, and restaurants of Broadbeach on the Gold Coast.
