What’s on at Groundwater Country Music Festival (CMF) 2022?

20 October 2022

Our stellar lineup will be arriving at Broadbeach from 28-30 October, giving you three days of FREE live country music from artists like Fanny Lumsden, Travis Collins, Tami Neilson, Seaforth and so many more!

But when we tell you to come for the party, there’s one hundred other reasons why! Check out our guide to Groundwater CMF. 

Open across all three days of the festival, take some time to explore our Country Fair. Located in Kurrawa Park, we’re bringing you authentic country vibes with something for everyone!


Get your shop on in between catching live performances from your favourite artists. Pick up a new hat or deck out your outfit with some gorgeous jewellery. Filled with local businesses, you don’t have to go far for some decent shopping at Groundwater CMF!

Who doesn’t love a good game of cornhole? Verse your mates in a classic game on the grounds of Kurrawa Park, which is just steps away from the golden beaches. Give it your best shot and soak up the festival atmosphere!


It wouldn’t be a Country Fair without a carnival ride! This year we’ve got a giant Chair Swing to take your Groundwater CMF experience to new heights. If you’re taller than 110cm, hop on! Tickets are just $5 each, and all profits will be donated to our Charity Partner, Drought Angels.
