Major Events Gold Coast Director of Festivals and Events Mark Duckworth said the Groundwater CMF team were looking forward to bringing another packed lineup of country music talent to the stages in Broadbeach.   

“It’s hard to believe we are just a month out from kicking off Groundwater CMF 2022 and I think the program this year is one of the most varied we have ever had,” said Mark.

 “We can’t wait to welcome home some of our favourite Aussie acts this year, showcase a collection of international talent, and introduce fans to some new up and coming artists. Get ready to enjoy some unforgettable country music while kicking back in one of the best beachside destinations in the country.” 


With so much great music and entertainment to enjoy, it is just as well the official Groundwater CMF festival app is available to help festival goers make the most of the long weekend! The app provides event information, artist bios and a handy map to find your way around the festival precinct.
