Taking place at the Sunshine Coast’s premiere entertainment venue, NightQuarter, on Saturday 18th June and kicking off from 4.00pm.

The jam-packed event will be headlined by the Queensland and Gold Coast Music Awards Country Artist of the Year for 2022, Casey Barnes performing hits from his best-selling new album ‘Light It Up’ and more. Joining Casey will be Byron Bay based family band, The Buckleys, fresh from a songwriting and recording trip to Nashville, Josh Setterfield whose hook-laden country-rock tracks are making waves around the country, Liam Brew will bring a mix of his party-hearty originals plus some of everyone’s favourite 90’s country bangers, while Natalie Pearson will kick off the NightQuarter electric stage with her anthemic country-pop and powerhouse vocals.

 Joining them on the VIBES acoustic stage will be the 2022 Toyota Star Maker, Max Jackson who took out the prestigious title at the Toyota Tamworth Country Music Festival in April. Vixens of Fall will bring their sisterly harmonies while Gold Coast local, HUTCH will open the show.

The Lineup

Casey Barnes

Casey Barnes is undeniably one of the hottest acts in Australian country music right now – from cross-over airplay success to awards (he has won the Gold Coast Music Awards ‘Artist of the Year’ back-to-back in 2020 & 2021) to charts, streams and sold-out shows.

The Buckeys

The Buckleys are a three-piece sibling band from Byron Bay, Australia. With a melding of Pop, Country, Americana, and Indie Rock, their album Daydream is filled with all the sun, sparkle and wide-eyed excitement that these young singer/songwriters embrace.

Josh Setterfield

You haven’t seen energy in country music till you’ve seen Josh Setterfield. One of country’s most exciting and rapidly growing new artists, he is an entertainer, singer-songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist like no other. Injecting country rock with catchy pop to create his own signature sound. 

Liam Brew

Young Australian Country artist, Liam Brew, has been building a list of accolades for over a decade. To add to his 2009 Toyota Star Maker triumph, he’s been listed as a CMC Oz Artist of the Year Finalist, received multiple Golden Guitar finalist nominations and played THE biggest stages and events in Australia.

Natalie Pearson

After a winning performance on the main stage at the Gympie Music Muster, contemporary-country powerhouse singer, Natalie Pearson is making an impression. She may be petite at 5’2, but she has big notes to deliver. She is a vocal powerhouse creating a buzz in her community, earning recognition amongst well respected country music legends.

Max Jackson

Touring nationally with Idol, Gina Jeffreys, a #1 Debut Album and viral songs, in the multi-millions. It’s a long way from the tiny country town of Coonamble, New South Wales where Max Jackson is from.

This small-town Country girl is on quite the ride and has no intention of slowing down.

Vixens of Fall

A product of Queensland’s Northern sugar cane fields, hot summers and cyclones, the Vixens of Fall are a reflection of their homeland. Sweet, hot and a little bit crazy! The three sassy sisters Nina, Wren and Lulu have a love and passion of country music that is taking the scene by storm.


A skilled songwriter and accomplished performer, Gold Coast country musician Chris Hutchison – aka HUTCH – is celebrating his return to music and latest single ‘Let It Go’. It has all the hooks and melodic sensibilities of a solid pop number with the steely guts and irresistible beat of contemporary country. HUTCH’s gravelly vocals and catchy lyrics top things off nicely,

Walter Whip & The Flames

 A jaw dropping western performance of whip cracking and fire stunts. Join the whip cracking workshop for the children where Walter Whip will teach the basic skills of cracking an Australian Stock Whip (free to participators) followed by their jaw dropping and action packed evening western performance incorporating whips fire and a trusting female assistant.
