Dedicated to lovers of homegrown country twang, this will be more than just a country music festival you won’t soon forget.

The wild hearts behind Buck Wild Country brewed up an evening that went down smoother than malt whiskey on a fresh North Queensland Saturday night on June 11 2022.

Picture a sea of paisley and floral rugs, tassel cushions and bell tents strewn across the prestigious Elite Rodeo Grounds, lit by strings of twinkling lights, joined one by one by swooning stars as the afternoon light faded into night.

Our attendees perused boutique market stalls, curated with your aesthetic appetite in mind, featuring artisanal works and crafts by local creative souls.

Little wildlings ran barefoot and free, with giant lawn games and more to keep that sparkle in the eye of even the wildest of babes.

All serenaded from 2pm till nights end by a line-up of Australian country music artists with melodies that stain your heart and mind long after the night had passed.
We camped outback style and satisfied our inner bohemian appetite and retreat to glamorously indulgent bell tents that appeased both our sense of style and comfort.

We reclined and unwound, drank and were merry, and let our feet lead the way through the good vibes of a buck wild night.

Buck Wild Country Barn Sessions was for the dreamers, the groovers, the artists and the boot scooters. For the young at heart and old wild souls. The Gypsie's and the hippies, the cowgirls and boys. For the country music enthusiasts, and the ones who have sip and chill down to a fine art. Those hours are where all kinds are kinfolk.

Line up consisted of James Johnston, Southbound XO, Ell Regan, Chelsea Berman, Jake Davey, Josie & Tammy Moxon.
If you want to join us in 2023, put on your bells or your cowboy hats, and pull on those dancing boots - or kick them off if that’s more your style. Be following us on Instagram @buckwildcountrybarnsessions or visit us at for updates.
