The Concept

Hometown Fest is set to hit Brisbane in November 2019.

A two-day musical experience that hasn’t been seen in Australia before, the event will showcase live music and entertainment across three free daily stages and then dip into an international pool of talent for a ticketed arena show each evening, featuring some of the world’s biggest names in music.

The team at Hometown Fest are passionate about providing Australia with an unforgettable and unique experience. Hometown Fest is a music festival for the fans; it will include artist signings, pop-ups, surprise guests, competitions and opportunities to win money-can’t-buy experiences.

The Music

Hometown Fest is a mix of contemporary country, pop and rock; a music festival with a difference. While we respect the classic music festivals that have come before us, we’re passionate about alternate and contemporary sounds that transcend genre stereotypes. Emphasising the genre crossover that country music, in particular, has taken into the realms of pop, rock, rnb and more. Hometown Fest music and artists will be as diverse as Australia’s music fans, and whether you’re a classic ‘Slim Dusty’ country music fan or an ‘Early-days Taylor Swiftie’, there will an act that appeals to you.

If you aren’t a fan of country music, we’d like to challenge that thinking.

For those who just can’t wait – you can expect our headliner announcement to drop early 2019. Make sure you subscribe to our mailing list to be the first to know!

The Community

Hometown Fest is designed to be a celebration of all things Australian and uniquely Queensland. Free day time events will focus on up-and-coming music artists. Food and market stalls will support Australia’s local farmers, producers and creators. Hometown Fest will be promoting and supporting Australia’s country way of life wherever possible! Our atmosphere a mixture of Australian spirit, country pride, community and family.

Another key component of Hometown Fest that is very important to our team is sustainability, which is why our event will be paperless and cashless. Attendees will use either a prepaid card or app to pay for all of their food, beverages and purchases at the event (resulting in much faster drink lines!).
