Set next to the pristine beachfront of Queensland’s Broadbeach on the Gold Coast, the Groundwater Country Music Festival was a perfect mix of board shorts and banjos, surfboards and steel guitars as country music’s finest assembled for three days and nights of incredible entertainment. They say country music is a broad church and that couldn’t have rung truer during our weekend at Broadbeach. From the folksy stylings of Tex Perkins’ tribute to the great Johnny Cash, to the banging country rock of Casey Barnes, our travellers were chasing stars from stage to stage and dancing all day long.
We made friends with members of awesome up n coming bands like The Viper Creek Band and snapped photos with established country stars like Beccy Cole, Casey Barnes and, of course, Lee Kernaghan. It was Lee who headlined the final night and what an end to an amazing weekend it was! Of course we didn’t want it to come to an end, but after 3 straight days and nights of dancing and non-stop fun, our feet were ready for a break. Keep an eye out for the release of next year’s line up of country rockers, divas and all-round superstars. Trusted Travel will do it all over again!
