ABOUT

THE COUNTRY MUSIC CLUB

Celebrating 35 Years!

Some forward thinking people with a love of Country Music launched the Country Music Club of Boyup Brook WA Inc. Like many a great idea, the Club was born from a discussion around a fire while friends enjoyed a meal and a few quiet drinks. Its inaugural meeting was held in August 1979.

The Country Music Club of Boyup Brook WA Inc. is a catalyst for Country Music in Western Australia and is recognised nationally for its activities. The Club’s major activity is to organise the Boyup Brook Country Music Festival, which was first held in 1986 to an audience of approximately 500 people. In 2020 the festival celebrates an amazing 35 years. The Festival incorporates numerous fringe events which includes; the West Australian Country Music Awards, the Boyup Ute & Truck Muster, a street carnival, concerts, workshops and WA’s Bush Poets Breakfast. 

The Festival's main venue is the Music Park. This is a purpose build park with an 18m stage and sound shell, fencing reticulated grass, power, lighting, water, which was built with funding from Government grants and the hand of the committee, locals, builders and engineers.

The Festival created a focus on our community and assets in celebrating our achievements and helps us to foster a sense of identity and belonging. The community involvement develops long-term benefits and a cultural growth by assisting in the development of skills and the chance to collaborate with national and international artists.

All activities feature family and community celebration and help to stimulate and regenerate our regional economy. Participation and audience numbers have steadily grown.
