The Boyup Brook Country Music Festival is a Festival steeped in the local community. Presented by LiveLighter, this festival is one of Western Australia’s most popular music and camping festivals, held annually in February. It is a friendly celebration of all country music in a relaxed and natural bushland setting. Our Music Park is a charming family festival venue, with mature river gums over grassy knolls on the banks of the beautiful Blackwood River. During Festival days this picturesque venue, and the sleepy town, comes alive with delightful music on the main stage and throughout the streets.

Boyup Brook holds a large-scale country music event which has acknowledgement for year two of a three year successful funding application through Tourism’ WA’s Regional Events Scheme (RES), which is jointly funded by the Department of Regional Development through it’s Royalties for Regions program. It is intended the funding will help to attract hundreds of people to the rural region, helping to grow this local economy.

The Country Music Capital of WA, Boyup Brook, is based in the southwest, some 270 kilometres from Perth. Country Music fans from around the state and further afield make the trek to Boyup Brook for fun filled days and star filled nights. Boyup Brook’s normal population swells dramatically with thousands of caravanner’s and campers, utes and trucks utilising the variety of community run camping grounds. All vying for the best spot to settle for a few days of clean country fun.
