Tamworth is the home of Australia's largest Music Festival.  The annual 'Country Music Festival' is held in January each year and is the largest music festival in the Southern hemisphere and is one of the top 10 in the world! The variety of not only country music (jazz, blues and dixie) is endless during the festival with over 800 performers and 4,000 shows across 120 different venues. There are over 600 buskers in Peel Street alone, providing a diverse range of entertainment each day – it’s no wonder we attract over 55,000 visitors!
