This year Ridin’ Hearts is well and truly dialling up the southern charm, with a lineup guaranteed to impress! In the headline slot is none other than US country superstar Riley Green, making his Australian debut. On a remarkable rise to stardom after being named Academy of Country Music’s New Male Artist of the Year in 2020, Riley has since collected accolade after accolade with the multi-platinum selling singer quickly becoming the artist every country music fan should know about. With hit singles ‘Different ‘Round Here’ with Luke Combs, 2x Platinum heart-tugger ‘I Wish Grandpas Never Died’ and chart-topping collab with Thomas Rhett, ‘Half of Me’ Riley has won legions of fans the world over with his no-gimmick, relatable writing and classic feel. Having opened for Luke Combs on his North American stadium dates, with an upcoming support slot on Morgan Wallen’s Hyde Park London show and sold-out headline shows around the world, Riley Green will bring big energy to the Ridin’ Hearts stage this November!   

Returning to Australia following a weekend of spectacular performances at CMC Rocks QLD in March is one of country music’s most exciting rising stars, Cooper Alan. Releasing his latest EP Feel Like Hell Today, Cooper continues to cement himself as a fearless musician and true entertainer. He is best known for the special, self-built connection with his audience which saw 2020 track, ‘New Normal’, shoot him to stardom. 

Sharing the stage with Riley Green (USA) and Cooper Alan (USA) is a line-up of artists that are sure to get you two-stepping and yeehawing as Ridin’ Hearts Festival returns to Sydney and Melbourne; Josh Ross (USA), MacKenzie Porter (USA), Tanner Adell (USA), Casey Barnes (AU), Austin Snell (USA), Bella Mackenzie (AU) and DJ Konsky (AU).

“As country music continues to be the genre everyone’s talking about, we’re very excited to announce the return of Ridin’ Hearts, a one-day festival that’s bringing country music to the city”, said Frontier Touring’s Chief Operating Officer, Susan Heymann

“The response to our debut last year was incredible and we can’t wait to come back to Sydney and Melbourne with a line up curated for the country enthusiasts, the country curious and anyone just looking to have a great day out”.

With rave reviews from fans, industry and artists alike, the inaugural Ridin’ Hearts Festival snagged the hottest international and local artists to play across the day, in a bumper celebration that continued into the evening. Epic market stalls and a range of mouth-watering food and beverage outlets provided something to satisfy every craving. Plus a raging silent disco, giant cornhole game and Brixton hat branding station for that unique edge, all amplified by the undeniable energy that only country music can deliver. ​

Jolene’s Diamond Club took the festival experience to the next level, offering perks to enjoy the festival in style including an exclusive bar and seating, phone charging facilities, premium toilets and powder stations to help keep the country glam on point!
