The organisers of the Tamworth Country Music Festival are confident the event will proceed as normal in January. The NSW Government has announced the person cap for indoor venues will be scrapped from July, which will allow venues to one person per four square metres of space. Provided all patrons are ticketed and seated, festivals will be permitted to have up to 10, attendees from next month, much to the relief of Tamworth Country Music Festival director Barry Harley. Organisers have been developing plans for the festival based on three possible scenarios — no restrictions, light restrictions, and heavy restrictions. Rockabilly singer-songwriter Shelley Minson said playing a concert from their home would be a different experience for her and her guitarist husband, Lawrie. The festival's organiser, Cheryl Brown, says while the bulk of the festival will occur online, a select few artists may choose to perform live under reduced restrictions. Mr Harley said he hoped attendance might be higher than usual if international travel restrictions were still in place over summer. News Home.

Early Bird VIP Weekend
As we head into the summer months, we wanted to let you know that we are thinking of you all, whilst our small but perfectly formed team hits the proverbial dance floor running, to get everything ready for our return to Blackpool from September We are so grateful to all of you who have retained your tickets for next year and supported us through what has been the worst time in a generation for the live music industry. Lockdown has given us all time to reflect. Everyone has learned to appreciate more time with family and friends and for many, listening to music and watching live stream performances has been key to maintaining our well being. On a personal note, we have committed to creating a better work life balance for the future. The period of reflection has also given us time to be creative and we will be announcing a number of new initiatives throughout the next six months.
