Welcome and News.. Get ready for the 2023 Marton Country Music Festival- That means YOU! – We are now well on the path the the next one to be held in January 2023 – On the 13TH, 14TH AND 15TH – 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! You can register now, and please spread the word – bring your friends too! Bookings are open and the downloadable forms are on the registration page. When you book, your ticket includes an entry in the Guitar Raffle – a fantastic guitar hand made by van Der Gaag Musical Instruments. See this link https://www.martonfestival.nz/guitar-gallery/ to see the guitar progress updates! – See you there! We have an exciting line up of familiar and ‘new’ artists – you will enjoy the mix! Check out the site as we put up information on these artists as the year goes on, leading up to the 2023 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! And don’t miss our “Invited Artist Showcase”, a fantastic concert held on Friday afternoon.
