COASTING MUSIC By DAVID STEWART THEY don’t call the Central Coast ‘Hillbilly Heaven’ for nothing. While Tamworth will always be the capital of Australian country music, many of the biggest names in country music choose to call the Central Coast home. How’s this for a Central Coast batting line- up: Kasey Chambers, Shane Nicholson, Bill Chambers, Felicity Urquhart, Adam Harvey, Beccy Cole, Lianna Rose, Gina Jeffreys and Lucky Starr? And we haven’t even mentioned the bowlers. So when the Central Coast turns on its annual country music festival, you know it’s party time. When the festival was launched in 2001 there were 10 venues, 24 artists and a crowd of 2000. This year, 30 venues will play host to 60 artists and about 45,000 visitors. What’s doing? The Greater Building Society Central Coast Country Music Festival 10 Year Anniversary kicks off on Friday, March 12, and concludes on Sunday night, March 14. The event features mostly outdoor performances during the day, then at night the entertainment shifts to local clubs and pubs. Most of the performances are free. Your guide to the Central Coast Country Music Festival 10 Year Anniversary. HIGH NOON: A young cowboy enjoys an amusement ride at The Entrance. A crowd of 45,000 attended last year’s festival.
