Buckle & Boots Country Festival have announced a hugely exciting collaboration with Australia’s Tamworth Music Festival, presenting the opportunity for 5 UK country artists to go ‘down under’ in January 2019!
The Buckle & Boots team (headed by festival organiser Karl Hancock) hope that the project will continue to broaden the horizons of British country artists, inspiring them to continue pushing the boundaries when it comes to attracting new audiences. The team have been busy forging new relationships overseas, with recent trips to Australia, Nashville and even Dubai. If the Australia project proves to be a success, there are aspirations to host similar events around the world.
The 5 artists being taken to Tamworth Music Festival will be chosen at this year’s Buckle & Boots, which is less than 2 weeks away! The festival boasts another stellar line-up, inlcuding US rising star Filmore, Australian award winner Hayley Jensen, and the UK’s newest country/folk breakout stars, The Wandering Hearts, who made their Opry & Ryman debuts out in Nashville last week.
