 Joining headline act and global superstar Brad Paisley and a host of other well-known names will be country music star Mackenzie Porter and Aussie pop diva Amy Sheppard. 

Born in Canada and based in Nashville, Mackenzie will join the Savannah family and come to Australia for her first tour down under. 

Savannah in the Round 2022 also welcomes raconteur, troubadour, balladeer and poet, Mick Thomas' Roving Commission. 

The additions don't end there, with rising country music star Amy Sheppard joining the fray. 

Best known as co-lead singer of Australian pop megastars “Sheppard”, Amy recently made her foray into the country music world with her first solo song “Nothing But Wild” back in April, blowing audiences away. 

Beloved FNQ indigenous outfit Black Image Band have also joined the bill, alongside local independent country singer Aurelle Brunjes, foot stomping country-blues artist Big Pups, Tropical North Queensland artist Yazmindi, and the return of 2021 festival highlight, the Al Boulton Band. 

The new additions to Savannah in the Round sit alongside an already massive line-up including the inimitable Jon Stevens, iconic folksters The Waifs, rock legend Tex Perkins performing his critically acclaimed show “The Man in Black”, Aussie rock idol Shannon Noll, homegrown country boy Adam Brand, and “Absolutely Everybody's” favourite popstar Vanessa Amorosi. 

Then there’s classic Aussie rockers like Richard Clapton, Ross Wilson, The Black Sorrows and more, alongside all the country hitmakers of the moment like McAlister Kemp, Rachael Fahim, Darlinghurst, Southbound, James Johnston, Kirsty Lee Akers, The Buckleys and Blake O’Connor. 

Savannah in the Round will again descend on the Mareeba Rodeo Arena from 30 September to 2 October for three days. Tickets are on sale now at
