Lovers of music, food and Queensland’s iconic outback can soon get ready for an unmissable experience as Queensland Music Festival (QMF) today announces its spectacular QLD Music Trails’
Outback Trail will return for another year in 2024.

Across nine action-packed days from 13 – 21 April 2024, festivalgoers and Autumn schoolholidaymakers can embark on the adventure of a lifetime filled with a tapestry of music, cultural
experiences, rich flavours, local hospitality, and more, whilst exploring the rugged beauty of Queensland’s heartland.

From soulful folk melodies under the starry skies to foot-stomping country tunes, the Trail will feature sounds from a diverse mix of beloved local, QLD-based, and national musicians, taking over
Queensland’s small outback town pubs, main streets, and public spaces.

Country Music artist Tori Forsyth, who released her single ‘Sometimes’ featuring Shane Nicholson recently, will perform during the Outback Trail, and said that she is “…absolutely thrilled to be getting out to South-West Queensland on the Outback Trail in April. I have many fond memories of our outback, and the people are so welcoming and fun! I can’t wait to perform and get to see the sights and smiles in the crowd! It’s gonna be a good one!”

After seeing great success last year Daryl Raven, COO of QMF, is excited to share what they’ve got in store for Outback 2024.

“Thanks to the support from the Queensland Government, our Trails created so many incredible moments, and lifetime memories for locals, and visitors, throughout the state this year… something which we can’t wait to do again with the return of the Outback Trail in 2024!”

“Regional Queensland is a place where the outback’s soul is intertwined with music, and the perfect backdrop to invite music enthusiasts and other adventurous visitors from near and far to join us in celebrating such a unique cultural tourism experience.” he says.

To help trail-goers on their way with all their adventure needs, QLD Music Trails has welcomed THL onboard to give exclusive offers on RVs and to celebrate, QLD Music Trails and THL are thrilled to present the Best of the West QLD Outback Giveaway!
