Slim Dusty Festival to begin on Monday October 15

The 15th annual Slim Dusty Festival is only a week away. The event is scheduled to start Monday, October 15 with the goal of raising funds for the Slim Dusty Centre. 

The festival is being held at the Kempsey Showground and runs for seven days, finishing on Sunday, October 21. 

Visitors from every state and territory in Australia and even some from New Zealand are already booked in to enjoy the massive line up of country music artists that will be performing. 

Festival-goers will be treated to something special on the Saturday night when three generations of the Dallas family perform, who aside from being incredibly talented, all have the distinct honour of being golden guitar winners. 

Tickets and camping packages can be purchased online at

Tickets can also be purchased at Tracy’s Gifts in Smith Street and the Slim Dusty Centre, which can be reached via phone on 6562-6533 Saturday to Monday.
