Can we get a Yee Haa! There’s three days of rodeo rock at the Mount Isa rodeo festival from August 8 to 11

A RECORD CROWD is expected when Australian country music royalty James Johnston (fresh from Nashville!), Brad Cox  and Kasey Chambers headline THREE nights of RODEO ROCK at the 2024 Mount Isa Rodeo Festival from August 8 to 11. They join BIG NAMES Christine Anu, the Hindley Street Country Club, and Zac & George, for the quintessential outback Aussie adventure you didn’t know you needed.

Picture this: you’ve piled into the car with your forever besties for the road trip of a lifetime. You hit play on your all-Aussie song list, as you wind through Queensland’s great highways, singing your hearts out, with the wind in your hair and your worries far behind you. When you arrive in the famous Mount Isa, all you can see is a vast expanse of rugged red earth meeting an endless horizon and above you, a star-studded canopy. Then the music begins, and …. welcome to RODEO!

This is not just any rodeo, it’s the Mount Isa Mines Rodeo, the largest rodeo in the Southern Hemisphere where the country’s best cowboys and cowgirls compete in the famous red dirt arena of Buchanan Park, and the music isn’t just any music, it’s from Australia’s best country stars!

What’s event better, this year is the 65th anniversary of this legendary rodeo event, the greatest show on dirt! So, dust off your boots, straighten your Akubras, gather your crew and plan your Outback adventure now – see you in AUGUST!
