Hi Folks

It is our passion and intent to bring a first class, sustainable music event to the spectacular region of the Tweed Valley, NSW.

We set out on this journey late last year (2015) and it has been an eventful and often difficult journey with many unforeseen obstacles. Although we have dealt with these situations as they’ve presented themselves, it has had a significant effect on our planning and implementation with sale of tickets being delayed by many months from our original plans.

Many of these negative hurdles are a direct result from the financially failed 2015 Murwillumbah Country Roots Fest in which we were NOT associated with as organisers, yet we have been unfairly linked with.

Therefore, we believe the only smart business decision is to postpone the inaugural Tweed Valley Country Roots Fest until Oct 2017. We certainly understand that this decision is not ideal, nor is it made lightly. However with only ten weeks left to go until the 2016 festival date we cannot ignore the increasing risks we are putting on our investors, stakeholders and ultimately ourselves.

A postponement to 2017 does not deter us, it simply gives us extra preparation time and the opportunity to gain additional resources, sponsorships, partners and stakeholders. More than ever, we are committed to making this the successful event we believe it will become.

In lieu of the 2016 October long weekend festival postponement (and to show our ongoing commitment to the community), we are holding a smaller FREE street concert in partnership with the Tweed Foodie Fest in September 2016. This will include some very special guests with more news to come.

Sincerely

Nash & Veronica Chambers

Hi folks

It is our passion and intent to bring a first class, sustainable music event to the spectacular region of the Tweed Valley, NSW.

We set out on this journey late last year (2015) and it has been an eventful and often difficult path with many unforeseen obstacles.

Of course everyone who purchased tickets to the 2016 Tweed Valley Country Roots Fest will be given a FULL refund. Ticket purchasers will be directly contacted over the next week.

In lieu of the 2016 Tweed Valley Country Roots Fest (and to show our ongoing commitment to the community), we are now holding a smaller FREE street concert in partnership with the Tweed Foodie Fest on the October long weekend 2016. This will include some very special gust artists with more details on this and the 2017 event to come soon!

Greg KelsoNext year will be great. If you can throw in a trail run event as well, even better. The Kelso's are around next year.

Eliza BarrGood on you guys! We were there last year and aside from the drama, the music and location were utterly fantastic. It is deeply unfortunate that people have incorrectly associated you with the crew from last year, but both your general conduct and this decision - sad as it is - proves the Chambers and friends absolutely have skin in the game with this event and we truly, truly appreciate what you're trying to do here for the greater good of the artists, the fans and the area. Bummed we're missing the full palooza for this year but you can bet we'll be coming up from Sydney for the Foodie Fest and backing you all the way in 2017!

Leonie LaingUpsetting but it means that you have another year to dig up more great talent!! Can I say - please drag Busby and Ashleigh into the mix, all of you guys play really well together, ok you have in the past. It's always so much fun (obviously including Kasey, Harry and Bill into this). We went last year and loved it. We had no issues with anything, (unlike others) we camped the Friday - Monday and just watched sun rises and went exploring during the early morning. Would 99% go again next year (depending on the line up.)
