Tussock Country Music Festival

Community Trust South is thrilled to support The NZ Country Music Festival Trust established 2019 which hosts Tussock Country - NZ's Country Music Festival.  Gore has been known as the Capital of Country Music since 1976 and now every Queens Birthday weekend the entire community comes together to celebrate country music. The Festival provides opportunities for individuals to perform, learn and indulge in music.  Many of New Zealand's country music artists have started their careers at the MLT NZ Gold Guitar Awards.
