Welcome and News.. Get ready for the 2022 Marton Country Music Festival- That means YOU! – We are now well on the path the the next one to be held in January 2022 – On the 14th, 15th & 16th – the 3rd weekend in January as it always has been! We will have a great line up of artists for both the Friday evening and Saturday Evening – So be there for both! We have made notes to make the experience even better for the Patrons. So your job is now to get booked in and spread the word, bring your friends too! Put it into your diaries now – the bookings are open and the downloadable forms on the registration page are there now. Prices etc will be pretty much the same! Except this time you get a ticket in the Guitar Raffle – a fantastic guitar hand made by van Der Gaag Musical Instruments. See this link http://www.martonfestival.nz/guitar-gallery/ to see the guitar progress updates! – See you there! This time we have a great mix of familiar artists and ‘new’ artists – you will enjoy the mix! It is always our aim to please patrons with a great line up of artists and talent. We always get requests to have people back in our line up and we also want to add new faces to the experience. Check out the site as we put up information on these artists as the year goes on, leading up to the 2022 Festival. The Bands line up has changed a little – we still have the backbone of the Festival the “Hand Picked Band” a group of talented and dedicated musicians, lead by our very own Colin McMillan. This great band we rely on to give our Artists the best possible support throughout the weekend. We have had a change in the Saturday afternoon/evening backing band – keep an eye on here for more information on that! There will also be an extra Invited Artist Showcase concert on Friday afternoon.
