CMC Rocks Moves To Queensland

CMC Rocks will have a new home in a new state in 2015. The Country music festival is heading to Queensland.

CMC Rocks was first held in Thredbo in 2008 and moved to the Hunter Valley in 2011. In 2015 CMC Rocks will be housed at Willowbank Raceway in South-East Queensland with Lady Antebellum set to headline.

The new venue is a one-hour drive from Brisbane or the Gold Coast.

“With what is basically a metro site located off the Cunningham Highway just one hour from both Brisbane and Gold Coast airports and accessible by road, train and shuttle bus options, travel to and from the event will be much quicker and easier. There is also an unlimited supply of accommodation within an hour radius of the site – including Brisbane, the Gold Coast and Ipswich, along with a much-expanded camping area and new glamping options,” said Rob Potts, CEO, Rob Potts Entertainment Edge

“Now in its 8th year, CMC Rocks has become a huge fan favourite festival, with country fans flocking to the event from all over Australia and internationally. The new larger site at Willowbank Raceway, South West of Brisbane, opens up exciting options for us in the way we stage the event, along with greater catering and entertainment options, enhancing the festival experience for everyone.”

Troy Cassar-Daly will also perform at CMC Rocks in 2015.

CMC Rocks QLD 2015 will be held from March 13 to 15 at Willowbank Raceway, Ipswich.
