Outback Sounds



Where is the event taking place?

Outback Sounds is taking place at the Charleville Showgrounds on Partride St, Charleville .

What is Outback Sounds?

Outback Sounds will transform the Charleville Showgrounds into an outback oasis, where the spirit of music, arts, food and community bursts to life. To start Outback Sounds with a bang, we've mustered a star-studded line-up featuring a plethora of Australia's most loved musos.

Renowned indie-rock heroes Ball Park Music are leading the charge, alongside distinguished alt-rock luminary and Something For Kate frontman Paul Dempsey. In tow are folk sensations Pierce Brothers, country-pop rising star Taylor Moss and alt-country powerhouse Tori Forsyth, ensuring there's a tune for everyone to tap their boots to.

In between sets, have a squizz at the plethora of market stalls hosted by local vendors and discover a treasure trove of goodies ripe for the picking. And when your taste buds beckon, bog in to delicious eats from the diverse array of food stalls scattered throughout the site.
