The event will go ahead in September rather than March, a decision that Chugg Entertainment chairman Michael Chugg said was driven by a desire to deliver an epic festival experience to country music lovers as early as possible.

Mr Chugg said this year's event is set to become one of our biggest yet.

"With the full lineup now locked in and full of top shelf local and international talent, it's going to be one big 5 day party. I can't think of a better way to celebrate our 15th anniversary," he said.

This year's event will be held from Wednesday 21 - Sunday 25 September 2022, with the festival returning to it's normal March slot in 2023.

More tickets available soon

Due to some ticket holders from 2020's postponed event unable to attend CMC Rocks QLD 2022, a limited number of tickets will now be put on sale at 12pm AEST Monday April 4.
