Registrations are officially open for the 2017 Toyota LandCruiser Country Music Busking Championships that will see hundreds of aspiring musicians line Tamworth’s iconic ‘Boulevard of Dreams’ on Peel Street, for a shot at stardom.

Many of those taking part will hope to follow in the footsteps of Troy Cassar-Daley, Kasey Chambers, Beccy Cole, and Keith Urban who all started by busking on Peel Street.

A great launchpad for aspiring musicians, last year’s winner Mitch King went on to be voted the Hottest New Act at the 2016 St Kilda Festival, while last year’s people’s choice award winner Goldheist recently released her single and music video ‘Far Away From Here’.

GOLDEN AWARD: 2016 people's choice award winner, Goldheist

The Toyota Country Music Festival Tamworth 2017 is being held from Friday 20th to Sunday 29th January 2017.
