52nd Country Music Awards of Australia 2024
(The Golden Guitars)


Live Event Services return to provide production for this year’s awards at the Tamworth Regional Entertainment and Conference Centre (TRECC) in NSW.  The festival is the second biggest country music festival in the world, after the CMA Music Festival in Nashville USA.

Colin Baldwin commented...

“this is our 10th consecutive year providing production and management for the awards and concerts held at TRECC.

Our relationship with the Tamworth Music Festival stems back 16 years, supplying production for several venues across the festival; we are very proud of our involvement in bringing the awards to life.”

Special thanks to...

 Peter Ross (Awards Producer)

Barry Harley (Festival Director)

Robert Elsworthy and his team at TRECC.

It’s no small task managing 24 people for the festival and awards… booking accommodation, sorting logistics’ and ensuring the team arrive in Tamworth on time.


Many thanks to our Sydney team… Fiona, Dana and Pam.
