BOYUP BROOK, WESTERN AUSTRALIA – It is time to dust off your boots, put on your hat and start planning a trip to Boyup Brook – Western Australia’s premier country music festival is making a comeback in February. The Country Music Club of Boyup Brook has announced that the Boyup Brook Country Music Festival presented by LiveLighter will return from February 18 to 20, 2022, after cancelling this year’s event due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Located in Boyup Brook, a charming family-friendly venue, with mature river gums over the grassy knolls in the South West, some 270 kilometres from Perth, this fun-filled music park caters to all country music fans from around the state and further afield. The Boyup Brook Country Music Festival is one of WA’s most popular music and camping festivals, held annually by the incredible local community.
This festival doesn’t just happen; the local community create it with hard work, patience and a passion for country music. For the last 35 years, dedicated volunteers from Boyup Brook and various other Western Australia towns have given their blood, sweat, and a few tears to make it the iconic Country Music Festival of Western Australia it is today!
Event organiser Daly Winter commented, “We’ve set the dates in line with the feedback received from the community, and we are excited about bringing you another great long weekend of entertainment celebrating all things country. With less than four months to go, the countdown is well and truly on – and we encourage you to start looking forward to another enjoyable event.”
The festival is the biggest of its kind in WA and a favourite on the country music calendar. It traditionally features live outdoor concerts, a street carnival featuring buskers, performers and markets, a ute and truck muster, and the West Australian Country Music Awards presented by LiveLighter, so a lot of healthy food and drink will also be on offer.
This year’s music festival line-up is like no other that brings something special and unique, catering to all country music lovers.
Not only does this festival bring loads of joy and excitement to many people’s lives, but it also plays a vital part in helping raise funds for several charities and organisations.
Mr Winter said by attending, fans not only enjoyed a fun and friendly outing but also helped to raise money for not-for-profits. “Over the years, we’ve supported a number of very worthwhile charities, community groups and organisations – all of whom have benefited through the festival,” Mr Winter said.
