What better way to celebrate World Cowboy Day on July 27 than with Australia’s ultimate cowboys putting on one of the most exciting horse shows in the world today?  The award-winning Australian Outback Spectacular has just been added to the already incredible festival program for Groundwater Country Music Festival to be held within a new performance space at the event called The Outback Arena which will also boast artist performances.

This is the first time that Australian Outback Spectacular has ever partnered with a music festival, and attendees will be lucky enough to see these unmissable performances for free!

Held on the Gold Coast July 26-28, Groundwater is Australia’s fastest growing country music festival where country meets the coast. The non-ticketed free event features 50 top shelf acts across 15 stages throughout Broadbeach’s bars, restaurants, streets and parks with the stunning beaches as your stage backdrop. Click here to view the 2019 Groundwater sizzle reel.
