The country fest featured world class country music – including Kip Moore and Randy Houser – and was unlike anything Bloomsbury had ever seen before.
Friday, March 10, saw just under 5,000 people through the gates, with Saturday, March 11, drawing in a crowd of almost 6,000.
Regan Anderson, from North Queensland Licensed Events, said the team could not have imagined anything better.
“For a first-time event, I don’t believe we could have asked for, or imagined, a better event,” he said.
“The vibe for the whole weekend was amazing. The rain didn’t deter anyone, but we do feel for the people out west, who got stuck in the weather and couldn’t make it.”
The Country Fest is hosted by Dittmann Bucking Bulls, a family-run business founded seven years ago, in Bloomsbury, by Jason and Kelly Dittmann.
“We really want to thank each and every person who turned up and made the party something special, it was Jason and Kelly’s dream to have Kip Moore on the property,” Mr Anderson said.
“We all can’t wait for next year, and Rockfest later this year, spoiler alert!
“Kip and Randy and their team don’t get much downtime and they spent the day on Whitehaven Beach, on Sunday, with some amazing photos. We are stoked we gave them not only a concert but an experience, as well.
“We will be back bigger and better in 2024 with Country Fest.”
