Ridin' Hearts Festival

Saturday 4 November

Ridin’ Hearts Festival is a fresh twist on country music.

It’s not your regular hoedown, it’s a one-day music extravaganza for loyal country fans, the country curious, and any music lover. 

Set to take place as the weather heats up and summer creeps in, Ridin’ Hearts will bring the vibrant spirit of country music to the city like never before, taking place just moments from the Sydney and Melbourne CBD’s. 

Complete with experiential bars, market stalls, mouth-watering food to satisfy every craving, plus some of the best local and international artists around, Ridin’ Hearts is raising a glass to all things country. 
So grab your boots and dust off your hat, Ridin’ Hearts is ready to create memories that will last a lifetime.
