Exciting times as Top Paddock Music Festival joins Tussock Country

Contemporary country music fans get ready – the successful Top Paddock Music Festival is coming to Gore.

Top Paddock will be a headline event at the new national Tussock Country Music Festival being held in May.

The opportunity to incorporate it into the wider Tussock Country Music Festival event is tremendously exciting, says Tussock Country Music Festival Trust chair Jeff Rea.

“Tussock Country is delighted to have forged a partnership with Top Paddock to hold the event as part of the Tussock Country Music Festival. We’re really stoked to be able to bring the energy, enthusiasm and talent line-up of this contemporary country music festival to Tussock Country,” says Jeff.

The annual Top Paddock event delivers a dynamic line-up of national and international country music stars and is credited with creating a new country-pop/rock movement in New Zealand that gives fresh meaning to what ‘country’ looks and sounds like. The 2020 Top Paddock artist line-up will be announced shortly.

“We realise that it’s a shift from a summer to a winter festival for Top Paddock. But here in Gore we turn on our own brand of fun and conviviality. This is, after all, the home of southern hospitality, not to mention Hokonui Moonshine whiskey,” says Jeff.

The first 9-day Tussock Country Music Festival is being held in Gore from 23-31 May. It will feature a mix of traditional and new country music events, alongside a stunning line-up of professional country musicians and activities.
