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 visitors show each evening.

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. 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 are as diverse as Australia’s music fans, there is something for everyone.

The Community

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