Attention country music lovers, we have big news we know you'll like. CMC Rocks 2023 is adding a 16th year to its reign as the biggest and most popular country music festival in the southern hemisphere. From Friday, March 17 to Sunday, March 19, Willowbank Raceway (just a 50-minute drive from Brisbane's CBD) will play host to a roll call of country legends and their sweet tunes.

Which legends? Zac Brown Band, Morgan Wallen, Kip Moore, Ashley McBryde and Mitchell Tenpenny, to name just a handful from the jam-packed roster. With twin stages and a fully booked program, the tunes won't stop until Monday comes. Camping and glamping options are currently sold out, but there'll be a resale facility opening before the festival in 2023 where you can get your hands on any pre-loved tickets. You could also stay in one of Ipswich's many lovely overnighters and get the festival bus in.

For one absolute showstopper of a weekend, you can sing and dance the night away to the pipes of 28 of the world's biggest and best country singers. All in sunny Ipswich, which has sights and experiences aplenty: think Breaking Bad-themed restaurants, helicopter tours and more. So clear your calendar and make a proper trip out of it.

CMC Rocks takes over Ipswich from Friday, March 17 to Sunday, March 19. Tickets are sold out, but head to the website to join the waitlist and be the first to know when the official resale opens.
