CMC Rocks the Hunter

CMC Rocks the Hunter is one of Australia’s biggest country and roots music festival and it’s coming to the Hunter Valley from March 14 – 17, 2014.

Over three days and three stages in the beautiful Hope Estate, 36 artists from Australia and around the globe are coming to the area to entertain thousands in a country and roots music  extravaganza that’s not to be missed.

For the first time ever, internationally renowned country singer, songwriter and actor Toby Keith is set to light up the stages at CMC Rocks the Hunter. Most recently known for his song ‘Red Solo Cup’ this artist is sure to entertain the audience.

Other artists included at the event include Gretchen Wilson, Clay Walker, Eli Young Band, Thompson Square, Kellie Pickler, Lee Kernaghan, Craig Campbell, Jim Lauderdale and many more.

One of the most exciting aspects of the festival is the Friday and Saturday International Songwriters Shows. Due to the popularity of these shows in 2013, a special ballot has been established this year to award Express Entry to some lucky patrons. Jim Lauderdale will be both MC and performer at these events, so make sure your name is in for a chance to attend!

While many will be busy booking their tickets to this festival as well as their Hunter Valley accommodation, one lucky festival goer will win tickets for a VIP weekend at CMC rocks the Hunter.

The prize package for two includes tickets to the festival, as well as an exclusive backstage tour, VIP area access, a vineyard tour and lunch for two people, as well as flights and three nights’ accommodation in a 4-star hotel. This is a great competition hosted by DNSW to offer a chance to see this festival in a way no one else will! To enter, all you need to do is let us know in your own words why a CMC weekend would “rock” – and here’s the catch – in 40 words or less!
