Munna Creek Country Music Festival cancelled after 11 years
It’s with much sadness we announce the permanent cancellation of the Munna Creek Country Music Festival.
Like so many other music festivals and live events we have been significantly impacted by COVID-19. The continuing uncertainty and risk associated with bringing large crowds of people together weighed heavily on our decision.
After 11 years this cancellation brings down the curtain on a much-loved music festival, but we feel proud of the festival’s contribution to the local community and businesses in the area. We would sincerely like to thank our guest artists, walk up artists, volunteers and audience for your support, friendship and the happy memories we’ve shared over so many years.
- 14-16 October 2021
- 17-19 March 2022
- 26-28 May 2022.
Don’t miss one of the friendliest country music open mic events around. Now featuring special guest artist performances, where two well-known country music artists will perform their popular hit songs.

Lex K – Event Founder
Lex K founded Munna Creek Country Music Festival in 2011 because of his passion for quality traditional country music and a desire to give back to the Munna Creek community. Somewhere his family has lived for over 130 years.
All profits from the music festival went back to helping the Munna Creek community. These profits, together with several kind grants from the Fraser Coast Regional Council, provided the much-needed funds to restore the historic Munna Creek Hall – the centre of the small, close-knit community.
Munna Creek Hall was originally built in 1906, with materials donated by Munna Creek’s founding families. The hall became the centre of the community, playing host to countless music performances, old time dances and local family celebrations.
In the 1980s Munna Creek Hall was used less and over the years the hall gradually fell into a state of disrepair.
The historic Munna Creek Hall has now been lovingly restored to her former glory. The hall, the oldest community-used building in the Fraser Coast Regional Council area, is once again the centre of the small, close-knit Munna Creek community.
