TCMF2018 Busking Survey

Here at Tamworth Regional Council we are always looking for ways to improve your TCMF experience.
This year we are taking a look at the TCMF Busking Competition.
Click here to complete this short survey

Applications for TCMF2019 open in late 2018 – stay tuned for updates!

The Toyota LandCruiser Country Music Busking Championships is one of the most anticipated aspects of the Festival each year - up to 400 buskers performing on Tamworth’s “Boulevard of Dreams” in Peel Street.


Some of the buskers are here in the hope that they’ll be spotted for their talent and follow in the footsteps of some of country’s biggest stars. Troy Cassar-Daley, Kasey Chambers, Beccy Cole, and of course Keith Urban all started by busking on Peel Street.


Some buskers, however, are just here to experience all the fun and excitement of the Festival. Whatever your reason for busking, it’s time to register for one of the biggest busking events in the world!


Haystac Mountain Hermits were named the 2018 Toyota LandCruiser Country Music Busking Champion!
