A STELLAR line-up is set to perform at next year's Gippsland Country Music Festival and tickets are on sale now.

The festival, at Mossvale Park on April 23, will feature a who's who of country music, with headliners such as Kasey Chambers, The Wolfe Brothers, Travis Collins and Adam Harvey.

The line-up also includes Darlinghurst, Taylor Moss, Mick Harrington, The Strzelecki Stringbusters, Bob Wilson Barkindji Man, Lee SonnyBoy Morgan, DJ Brat Paisley, and MC Ben Mastywyk.

This year's inaugural festival sold out more than a month in advance of the event, so it's important for music lovers to book tickets while they can.

The event is the brainchild of brothers Aidan and Rhett McLaren.

Aiden said the brothers wanted to establish a live music event in the heart of their Gippsland community.

He said the inaugural event exceeded expectations and anticipation for next year was already building.

The event was even nominated for Festival of the Year at the Music Victoria Awards - a very rare feat for a first time event.

"I think that says a lot about just how great the audiences are that come to the festival and make up the Gippsland Country Music Festival community," Aiden said.

"There is definitely some buzz and we'll be doing everything we can to make next year even better than last time."

Aiden said organisers were very excited about next year's line-up.

"When we first dreamed up the concept of Gippsland Country Music Festival, we had a list of 10 acts we'd love one day to play the event."

"That list included Kasey Chambers, The Wolfe Brothers, Travis Collins and Adam Harvey."

The festival will also feature line dancing, woodchopping demonstrations, food trucks, a smokehouse barbecue, rides, bars, market stalls and more.

Tickets start at $99. For more information click HERE
