CMC Rocks 2019 created history, selling out the more than 23,000 tickets within moments of going on sale.
The 2020 event promises to deliver more of the same first-rate entertainment, food, merchandise and more, all taking place within a unique festival setting.
And if you’re looking for some of the best international and local country music around, you’re in luck, because there are still tickets available.
But you’ll need to be quick.
Crowds travelled from as far as Canada, Qatar, UK and USA to attend the four-day event at Willowbank, injecting millions of dollars into the Ipswich and southeast Queensland economy.
Queensland Tourism Industry Development Minister Kate Jones said the event was a highlight on the state’s events calendar.
“This year’s CMC Rocks Qld demonstrated yet again that this state is the home of country music in Australia,” Ms Jones said.
“We’re also the home of major events and the 2020 CMC Rocks Qld promises to be another bumper affair, attracting music fans by the thousands to southeast Queensland and providing a great boost to the region’s economy.”
It will be held from March 18-22 and tickets can be purchased from Moshtix.
Music for the event, which receives significant support from Ipswich City Council, will kick off exclusively for campers in the Jack Daniel’s Garden Bar at 4pm on Wednesday 18 March.
