Golden Guitar Award winners Fanny Lumsden and Travis Collins will be among the headliners at this year’s Groundwater Country Music Festival.

Lumsden comes off the back of a huge 12 month old who saw his album Fallow reached number one in the ARIA country rankings and in the top ten of the overall ARIA rankings.
“It’s so exciting to return to Groundwater CMF this year! It was the first festival we got to play on the ‘big stage’ in 2017, so it’s definitely one of our favorite festivals…to play and just to be there as well,” Lumsden said.
Joining Lumsden and Collins will be fellow Australian country stars Brooke McClymont and Adam Eckersley, Gina Jeffreys, Catherine Britt and Kirsty Lee Akers.
Akers, whose new album Wild debuted at number one on the ARIA charts ahead of The Kid Laroi and Lee Kernaghan, says Groundwater is going to be one hell of a party.
“There is finally light at the end of the tunnel – live music is back! I can’t wait to take the stage at the Groundwater Country Music Festival, my favorite festival of the year in beautiful Queensland,” said Akers.
With international borders now open, Groundwater will once again be able to welcome country music stars from overseas.
New Zealand’s Kaylee Bell and number one selling Canadian artist Dan Davidson will join the lineup along with other international artists expected to be announced before October.
Groundwater Country Music Festival director Mark Duckworth said this year’s event is set to be one of the best country music nights ever.
“In 2022, our festival fans will be treated to incredible acts from across the country as well as international flavors along the way,” Duckworth said.
“Three days of country music will swell the spirit and welcome the Queensland sun in October, over 40 country artists will take to the various stages of Groundwater CMF to entertain and connect with fans across Australia.”
