Queensland Music Festival has a star-studded lineup to headline the 2024 Outback Trail, which will celebrate iconic Aussie music for nine action-packed days amongst the raw beauty of rural Queensland from April 13 to 21.

Country music superstar Troy Cassar-Daley, Something For Kate frontman Paul Dempsey, and Australian indie favourite, Ball Park Music will lead the outback music festival, alongside an impressive mix of local and emerging artists from across the country.

“The Outback Trail really is an unmissable, authentic celebration of Australian music and I can’t wait to be a part of it. Outback Queensland has a special place in my heart and I can’t wait to be a part of music coming to life with local communities on Country,” said Cassar-Daley.

The 2024 Outback Trail will kick off in Goondiwindi and trail through Nindigully, Charlotte Plains, Quilpie, Tambo, Charleville and finish in Roma, taking over local pubs, hotels and streets with a tapestry of music, food and culture in each town.

Daryl Raven, acting CEO of QMF, said the upcoming 2024 Outback Trail would be bigger and better than ever before, presenting events over nine days, in seven outback towns/regions, for the very first time.

“This year’s Outback Trail is the first time we’re delivering this many events. Across seven regional townsnthroughout Queensland, and with high profile artists – it really is going bigger than ever before. The Trail will have twice the impact on the Queensland arts/music industry as years before, supporting over 145 local artists and artworkers, including 46 First Nations artists,” Raven said.

“Music really is the heart of the Outback Trail so we couldn’t be happier to welcome incredible
Australian talent, Troy Cassar-Daley, Ball Park Music and Paul Dempsey to this year’s lineup, but the
spotlight will equally be put on local and emerging artists, creating an incredibly diverse mix of
Australian music talent for both locals and Trail travellers to enjoy.”

The Outback Trail is set to be a musical experience for all, from boot shaking singalongs to slow and
moving performances, taking attendees on an unforgettable journey across rural Queensland.

Trail-goers can choose their own adventure across the seven locations, with individual tickets available for each region’s events.
