Visit our facebook page to tune in on our CCMA Battle of the SongStars recorded live event from Thursday, January 25!!

There have been significant changes to talent quest activity in Tamworth this January with the Capital Country Music Association joining Tamworth Regional Council to return the majority of National Talent quest activities to the famous Tamworth Town Hall where it started all those years ago!

January 2018 has seen the CCMA juvenile and the majority of junior and senior talent quest sections incorporated into the Coca-Cola "Battles" in the Tamworth Town Hall.

This streamlined the organisation of these activities and provide simpler options for entrants.

Juvenile and Junior sections of the talent quest incorporated into the BATTLE OF THE YOUNGSTARS.

Junior and Senior group/duo sections incorporated into the BATTLE OF THE BANDS.

And Senior vocal entrants (including Golden Oldies) catered for in a brand new event... BATTLE OF THE NEWSTARS

The CCMA continued to run songwriting sections for junior and senior songwriters – see above.

The only sections not being catered for specifically are junior and senior instrumental, sections which have been progressively diminishing in competitive popularity for a number of years. That said, the Town Hall activity included BATTLE OF THE BLUEGRASS which provided an outlet for hotshot musicians wanting to enter competitive activity.

For further information about all of the "Battle" activity – including access to enter – click here, or on the image at right. Spaces are likely to be limited so act now!

The Capital Country Music Association continued to run our traditional Jamboree winners concert during the festival at the Town Hall.
