Lighthouse Country 2024
Lighthouse Country is back with the cream of Australian Country Music
Tickets on sale: Thursday, 16 November
Music fans from around Australia will again descend on the beautiful town of Burnett Heads in the Bundaberg region for Lighthouse Country when it returns on Saturday, 4 May 2024 for what will be a big day out of country music.
Launching into its 2nd year, Lighthouse Country is located by the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef on Queensland’s beautiful Coral Coast and 2024’s stellar lineup is sure to again attract record crowds.
The huge lineup of Aussie legends set to grace the main stage in 2024 are (drumroll, please): John Williamson, Lee Kernaghan, Kasey Chambers, Brooke McClymont + Adam Eckersley, James Blundell, Kingswood, Hillbilly Goats, Pete Denahy, Mark Lavender and Keely Ellen. Local Taribelang Aboriginal Corporation will kick off the proceedings with an emotional Welcome to Country.
Lighthouse Country’s inaugural event in 2023 was a massive hit with locals and country music fans alike and promoter, Gavin Hales, is proud to bring the country to Burnett Heads again in 2024.
He said, “We are thrilled to be able to showcase this big day out of country and bring this amazing lineup to our region. With workshops and activities for the kids, everyone will be entertained for the whole day and night!”
We’re not just sorting your Long Weekend Saturday, Lighthouse Country is putting on a full weekend’s worth of entertainment kicking off with a pre-party at the Lighthouse Hotel on Friday night (3 May) with local favourite, Brendan Egan, locked in to warm you up and let your hair down before Saturday’s main event.
After the stage lights go down on Lighthouse Country on Saturday night, every ticket holder is invited to a free after party across the road at the Lighthouse Hotel with Mark Lavender and his band set to keep the festivities going until the wee hours.
We’re also putting on a Sunday recovery session at the Lighthouse Hotel for all festival attendees (free entry with Festival wristband or $10 cover charge for non-attendees) to catch up with all your new mates over a free drink (included with entry) and belt out some more tunes with Keely Ellen and Hillbilly Goats providing the musical backdrop.
Lighthouse Country will once again support the important work of the Sea Turtle Alliance, Great Barrier Reef Legacy and RACQ LifeFlight.
Lighthouse Country is a one day, family friendly event with tickets going on sale at 9.00am on Thursday, 16 November.
