Adam Brand to Headline Carnival of Cups in Tamworth


Country music superstar Adam Brand will headline Harness Racing New South Wales’ Carnival of Cups entertainment line-up in Tamworth with a free and exclusive Australia Day performance.

Notoriously one of the most highly-sought after acts in the Country music capital, the Carnival of Cups on January 26 will be Adam’s only show on this year’s Tamworth Music Week program.

He will bring his high-energy show to town with full band in tow to headline the third-leg of the new Carnival of Cups schedule.

The multi-award-winning artist will be supported by emerging star Bella Mackenzie, who recently won Australian hearts with her eye-catching performances on The Voice and chart-topping trio Southbound xo.

Bella recently performed trackside at Club Menangle as part of the revamped Breeders Challenge Finals day, while Southbound xo are well known in the Tamworth area after playing in front of more than 9000 fans last year in Bicentennial Park.

Southbound xo have already scored two number 1 singles on the Australian Country Radio Airplay charts and continue to create headlines abroad.

Their performances will complement a landmark race night for the Tamworth Harness Racing Club, with the running of the time-honoured Golden Guitar Final and the newly-created Tamworth Cup.

“I can’t wait to be headlining the Carnival of Cups meeting Tamworth. It is a special place to be during Country Music Week and it’s just going to go to another level trackside on Australia Day,” Brand said.

“I’m thrilled to be performing alongside Bella and the ladies from Southbound xo too. They are super talents and I know between all of us we should be able to create some great memories for race-goers. It’s going to be a lot of fun!”

“It’s free but it’s still going to be one of the hottest tickets in town so don’t delay in registering to secure your spot. You’re going to get full concerts from all of us and get to see some great racing on what is the biggest night of the year for the Tamworth club so bring it on!”

The Carnival of Cups meeting in Tamworth follows on from a highly successful weekend in Cowra and the upcoming night in Young on 1 December – to be headlined by Australian rock luminaries The Living End.
