Event Details

The Bungendore Country Music Festival is held at the Bungendore Showground on the first weekend in February each year and in 2020 will be celebrating 35 years of embracing All Australian Country Music.

The 2020 program is out now with a big week of entertainment and events leading up to the muster weekend and a fantasticTravellin Still line up of artists over the weekend.

The Muster weekend kicks off on Saturday morning with the Signflair Streets of Bungendore Busking competition, followed by the Annual Stan Coster Bush Ballad finalists concert and awards back at the showground at 1pm. The Muster is extremely proud to continue hosting these leading awards which are now in their 23rd year. From 7pm on Saturday the Greg Gorman Stage will host a night of entertainment and this year the Muster is excited to announce that along with special guest artists, we have the much acclaimed show “Travellin’ Still – The Songs of Slim Dusty” joining us. Pete Denahy and the Travelling Country Band share their stories and bring the songs of Slim Dusty to life in this not to be missed show and they are “pretty darn genuine” because they are all played in Slims own original band. The entertainment continues on Sunday with the gala showcase with eight hours of continuous country music from a great line up of Australian Country Music Artists including some new faces and muster favourites.

Join us for the Muster weekend and help us celebrate our 35th anniversary. For campers we have a great week of pre muster entertainment planned for you and gates open at 1pm on Monday. Check out the program below and pop the dates in your diary. We are looking forward to seeing you.
