Country music was being overuled by 'Rock 'n' Roll' at the time so to begin with there was very few artists who attended these talent quests. Eventually as these artists such as Slim Dusty made more albums country music became more popular and with the growth in attendance to the talent quests, it was decided that a festival be held instead. Why was it chosen The festival runs for 10 days towards the end of January every year. it is held in Peel St, the main street of Tamworth and there are over 60,000 peopel that attend each year. When and Where is it held? With over 60,000 visitors to entertain country music artists come from all over the country to perform. Big name country music artists such as Beccy Cole and Kasey Chambers perform each year as well as the other country artists who may not be famous. For some singers this is where their career begins. There are buskers and scheduled performances running all 10 days. What attractions and events are held? Tamworth is 304.4km North East of Dubbo. It is situated at 31 5' S and 150 55' E.
