The main concert starring Gina Jeffreys will begin at 3pm on Sunday and it is rumoured that Kasey Chambers, Rick Price, Adam Harvey or Beccy Cole may join Jeffreys on stage.

The festival will also mark a new beginning with the introduction of the Soles of Country Music. The first inductees will be Gina Jeffreys, Rod McCormick and the winner of the championship. The event will take place at 2pm.
