HAVING attended the forerunner of the Country Music Festival on the June long weekend, the Tamworth Country Music Jamboree and most festivals thereafter – bring back the buskers, good and bad to Peel St.
The Peel St precinct with the buskers is 50 per cent of the festival.
This year Peel St was a flop. I would not be surprised if very few buskers turn up next January. Peel St lacked any atmosphere this year.
People who attended the festival for the first time this year may have thought it great, but those of us who have been to 40 plus festivals know it was the worst on record in regards to Peel St.
My wife and I have already made plans for next January and they do not include the Tamworth Country Music Festival.
Bring back all who wish to busk in Peel St and reduce the vendors.
