Hats Off to Country Music Festival is a cool mid-year festival right here in Tamworth. Venues in the region welcome you to four days of country music! The Hats Off festival complements the annual Tamworth Country Music Festival offering cooler temperatures, a hub for singer-songwriters, and a haven for good times. In 2017, the addition of the Cowboy Crawl was introduced as a fun and safe way to see up to five artists across five venues in one evening. Hats Off features mostly free events with a handful of ticketed shows. Numerous Golden Guitar winners participate as well as individual singer-songwriters and members of the Tamworth Songwriters’ Association, a songwriting retreat, the CMAA Junior Academy, the Australian Bush Balladeers’ Association’s Bronze Bust fundraiser, the annual Dare 2 Dance Line Dance Social, the Capital Country Music Association’s tribute concert, and dozens of events and activities throughout Country Music Capital and the surrounding region.
