2. How will current water restrictions in Tamworth impact TCMF2020?

The Toyota Country Music Festival draws up to 50,000 people to the region each day during the Festival’s ten days in January. Bearing in mind our current circumstances we have revisited the most current water consumption statistics and found that there is minimal difference between consumption during Festival and other days in January.

As this same influx of visitors adds more than $50M to our economy, the Festival must proceed to support our local business community during these especially difficult economic times.

Visitors to the region will be expected to follow water restrictions just like any resident and will be subject to the same enforcement activities if they are seen breaching restrictions.

We will continue to find innovative ways to support our water supply during the TCMF2020 and you will see lots of information on how you can save water during your time at the Festival.
