The Tamworth Country Music Festival postal numismatic cover marks the 50th anniversary of Australia’s legendary country music festival. The stamp area label is postmarked - 19 April 2022 | Tamworth NSW 2340

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Australia’s legendary country music festival. Traditionally held in January, the festival in 2022 celebrates the twanging good sounds of an exceptional line-up of country music artists between 18 and 24 April.

Over the festival’s lifetime, it has not only galvanised generations of performers and fans, but it has also made Tamworth synonymous with country music in Australia. And that was always the plan. The origins of the festival go back to Radio 2TM launching the Country Music Awards in January 1973. This was part of broader efforts being made to make Tamworth, New South Wales, the country music capital of Australia. Nevertheless, 1973 was a watershed moment, and that year Joy McKean took out the inaugural Golden Guitar Award for “Lights on the Hill”.

Tamworth is now considered one of the leading music festivals globally, a popular and much-celebrated event that supports Australian country music artists and the Country Music Golden Guitar Awards.
