This type of entertainment, featuring “live” onboard Country Music artists and bands, will add a unique dimension to the Festival as well as showcasing our beautiful Blue Water Wonderland.

The Festival will also be extended to a full four days and will include all forms of Country Music including traditional, bluegrass, and balladeering.

Bush Poets will also complement the extensive array of country music.

The Festival, which commenced in 2006, promises again to feature unique and exciting new gigs at over 20 venues including a “Progressive Country Music Luncheon Cruise” on the beautiful and exotic Port Stephens waterway.

The Blue Water Country Music Festival will bring “Country to the Coast”.

“We have a team of scouts heading to Tamworth to find a great headlining act for the 2017 Festival,” Ryan Palmer, President of the Tomaree Business Chamber, told Bay News Of The Area.

“There is still time for local country music talent to register their interest by contacting the Tomaree Business Chamber,” Mr Palmer said.

The Festival not only features well known and established Australian Country Music artists but will also host a great young new talent line-up.

Included in the event will be a full line dancing program headed up by our two local groups “Bay Boot Scooters “and the “Bluewater Line Dancers” at various venues around the shores of Port Stephens.

Nelson Bay and its surrounds will provide a unique seaside setting and backdrop for hosting the Blue Water Country Music Festival
