Groundwater Country Music Festival Dates 2018 – Ticket Prices & Schedule

Groundwater Country Music Festival is held on the last weekend of July each year, so in 2018 will be held on 27-29 July. There will be a range of fantastic acts including The McClymonts, Suzanne Vega, Granger Smith, Lillie Mae, Joshua Hedley, Bill Chambers, Adam Harvey, O’Shea, James Blundell, Troy Kemp and Casey Barnes.

You do not need to purchase tickets as the staging areas will be filled on a first-in best-dressed policy, so get in early to make sure you catch your favourite artist. Feel free to bring your own chair to the outdoor stages as there is only limited seating at some of the venues.

Kids are also welcome at the Groundwater Country Music Festival as there will be carousel rides as well as an art & craft market during the festival.

BYO alcohol is not permitted at the festival, however you can purchase drinks from the licenced venues located nearby. Camping is not permitted as the festival is held in the Broadbeach CBD, however there are plenty of accommodation options located within the Broadbeach area.

You can leave the car at home, as all performances are within walking distance of each-other. You can get to the festival by taking the free shuttle bus from the Sofitel Gold Coast to The Star Casino, the Resort and Pacific Fair Shopping Centre. The shuttle leaves every 30 minutes.

So come on down to the beautiful Broadbeach area and enjoy this massive free musical event!
