CMC Rocks will be returning for it’s 15th anniversary in September 2022, and have announced its line-up including country stars Kane Brown, Brad Paisley and Morgan Evans. The full lineup is set to be announced in early 2022.

CMC Rocks is the largest international country music festival in the Southern Hemisphere, but was cancelled in 2020 and this year due to COVID event restrictions. Chugg Entertainment chairman Michael Chugg said the event will go ahead in September rather than March, a decision that was driven by a desire to deliver an epic festival experience to country music lovers as early as possible. Said Chugg: “We couldn’t wait! We know that it’s been a long year and a half for country music fans, we’ve felt it too. After making the heartbreaking decision to postpone our 2020 event a week before the festival was due to take place, we’ve been working hard to navigate all the changes and find the best way forward, safely”

This year’s event will be held from September 21 -25, 2022, with the festival returning to it’s normal March slot in 2023. Tickets and camping to go on sale from 9am AEST on Wednesday, November 3.  For more information, head here:
