Mount Hunter Country Music Stampede is a three-day festival that’s designed to showcase Australian country artists both established and new, it’s a celebration of country life and music.
The festival will run from Friday 12th to Sunday 14th October at K Ranch Arena just 50 minutes from Sydney Airport and will feature performances by some of country music’s powerhouse artists.
The Stampede kicks off on Friday night and it’s definitely one for the girls, with Christie Lamb and Jasmine Rae taking the stage.
Saturday is a chance for the guy’s to strut their stuff with the Men of Country Showcase featuring Drew McAlister, Adam Harvey and Adam Brand.
The Maton Rising Star competition is back for its second year, now with both a junior and senior section. It’s a huge opportunity to not only be a part of a young, growing festival, but to also perform at the following year’s festival as a paid act and there are some exciting prizes up for grabs. There’ll also be events featuring traditional cowboy skills, as well as an equestrian competition.
The Stampede is the brainchild of Mick Kearney, owner of K Ranch, and Drew McAlister, winner of multiple Golden Guitars.
Mick Kearney conceived the idea for K Ranch after visiting a ranch in Texas. He came home and, over the course of five years, built his vision just outside of Sydney on 400 acres in Mount Hunter. With a bar, boutique, Texas BBQ and saddler, K Ranch regularly hosts a variety of equestrian events, live music, private functions and corporate events.
