The 2019 Horsham Country Music Festival was to be our final festival, with committee members mostly now being in their 70′s and 80′s, in varying degrees of health.
The event heralded an excellent artist line up, and set a record for attendance, up 25% compared to previous years, hitting 1,000 people on the Saturday’s events.
In light of the Festival’s performance, Horsham Rural City Council, in partnership with the Horsham Sports and Community Club, are now looking at funding a Festival Co-ordinator to allow the Festival to continue into the future.
Current Festival Co-ordinator, Mr Lyall Wheaton, said that Council will meet later in April to consider this proposal. If approved, the 13th Horsham Country Music Festival will be held over the 4th weekend of March – from the 26th to 29th March 2020 – business as usual.
