The one-of-a-kind daylong festival from the team that brings you CMC Rocks delivered an impressive lineup of country music stars to Sydney and Melbourne last year, headlined by US wunderkind Bailey Zimmerman.

With rave reviews from fans, industry, and artists alike, the inaugural Ridin’ Hearts Festival snagged the hottest international and local artists to play across the day, in a bumper celebration that continued into the evening.

Epic market stalls and a range of mouth-watering food and beverage outlets provided something to satisfy every craving. Plus, a raging silent disco, giant cornhole game, and Brixton hat branding station for that unique edge, all amplified by the undeniable energy that only country music can deliver.

Jolene’s Diamond Club took the festival experience to the next level, offering perks to enjoy the festival in style, including an exclusive bar and seating, phone charging facilities, premium toilets, and powder stations to help keep the country glam on point!
