Top Paddock Music Festival is set to make its mark on the deep South as the largest 'new-country' music event in New Zealand for 2021 on May 29. The festival is to be held at the T & C Stadium in Gore for its fifth year as part of the inaugural 9-day Tussock Country Music Festival. Organizers are preparing for a huge and successful event with an all-Kiwi line up including award winning pop-country star Jody Direen and Tui winner for Country Artist of the Year; Jenny Mitchell.
Sharing the stage will be Cam Scott, Hannah May and previous Gold Guitar over all winners; Jaydin Shingleton and Arun O'Connor. With 6+ hours of live music and one mega stage fans of all ages can expect one 'helluva party' with a mix of exceptional original and cover music.
The iconic, huge indoor venue provides an amazing location for the festival close to accommodation facilities and unaffected by adverse weather. Top Paddock has fast garnered a reputation for always providing a good time.
In her own lane, Jenny Mitchell blends alt-country and Americana into her own captivating style and was recently nominated for alt-country album of the year at the prestigious Australian Golden Guitar awards. Mitchell will be joined by her twin sisters in rich harmony on the Top Paddock stage.
Joining Jenny on the bill is New Zealand's Jody Direen; Vodafone best country album Tui winner. Direen released her 4th studio album during lockdown after touring Australia's first ever C2C Festival with Tim McGraw.
Cam Scott brings to the stage a generational shift in country music, blending rock and roll with country-pop with a credible list of accolades winning the NZ 2015 CMANZ Male Artist of the year, 2013 NCMA Horizon Award and 2012 CCMA 'Aristocrat Male Entertainer of the Year'. Scott offers a high energy, engaging performance exhibiting his music along with covers from the best contemporary country /rock artists.
Jaydin Shingleton is in the midst of a musical whirlwind, holding the title of Trans-Tasman Entertainer of the Year and Gold Guitar over-all winner 2019. Shingleton's vocal ability and energy combined on stage is mind-blowing.
New Zealand's 2018 Gold Guitar over-all winner Arun O'Connor will impress with vocal chops likened to Chris Stapleton and a set of up-beat party classics mixed in with his debut single "Following the Line" which recently hit #2 on the Country iTunes Chart (NZ).
