The usual sounds of country music will still be alive and well this long weekend in Barmera, despite the official committee folding recently.

With the official country music committee no longer operating, a number of venues including the Barmera Hotel, Cobby Club & the Barmera Discovery Park have teamed up to organise events for the weekend.

A spokesperson said they look forward to the events and hope the event can grow to incorporate other music styles in years to come.

The official Riverland country music festival kicked off in 1978, and was run each year until 2019.  

The action kicks off this Thursday night, with events running through to Sunday.
