The countdown is on for Australia’s coolest dose of mid-year country music, with the Toyota Hats Off To Country festival set to rock Tamworth in July.

Running from July 6 to 9, the mid-winter festival will be headlined by some of the country’s brightest stars, including Luke O'Shea, Melinda Schneider, Catherine Britt and Amber Lawrence.

The festival is now in its 18th year with more than 100 country stars and dozens of events set to rock the city over four days and nights at more than 14 different venues.

The festival is a chance to welcome back the artists from the January Tamworth Country Music Festival.

We are looking forward to Hats Off becoming bigger and better. - Barry Harley

Tamworth Regional Council Country Music Unit Manager Barry Harley encouraged locals and visitors to prepare for four days of fun.

“It’s extraordinary that Hat’s Off can boast more artists than any other festival in Australia even though in terms of scale it is much more moderate when compared to January,” he said.

“We are looking forward to Hats Off becoming bigger and better because it continues to attract big name artists and is another fantastic reason to draw people to Tamworth - the home of country music in Australia.”
