Norfolk Island Country Music Association continues to celebrate on the back of their last 20th anniversary with 2014 marking the twentieth year of their unique Trans-Tasman Entertainer of the Year award - as well as being the festival’s coming of age 21st year.
Norfolk is a petite and friendly island which proves itself each year by delivering an awesome festival with a completely unique South Pacific Island vibe. Fans are up close and personal with Country Music headliners and contestants during the festival and the whole week through.
Organisers invite upcoming Australian and New Zealand stars to battle it out for the Trans-Tasman Entertainer of the Year Award in fact this year’s Australian headliner Darren Coggan won the first ever title before becoming the big country star he is today. Darren (famous for his Jimmy Buffett and Cat Stevens Shows) will be joined by Tamara Stewart and more ‘soon to be released’ artists from Australia.
Fans are thrilled with the calibre of Trans-Taman Entertainer of the Year competitors as Australian and New Zealand performers compete head to head for what has become a prestigious stand-out title. The competition sure stirs the crowd and those patriotic Aussie and Kiwi visitors.
First time visitors are often impressed by Norfolk Island. “Our first time on Norfolk Island and the Norfolk Island Country Music Festival. We loved everything. The Festival was so well organised. The Island hospitality exceptional. The deep sea fishing unbelievable. We will be back next year. Can't wait! B.F. from Ettalong Beach.
With 2014 being the 20th anniversary of the Trans-Tasman Entertainer of the Year Award, special appearances from previous Trans-Tasman winners are sure to impress. Organisers are predicting another sell-out year!

There is much to see and do on Norfolk Island: fascinating historic tours, see Kingston which is a World Heritage Listed area,outdoor re-enactments of the Bounty Mutiny (with parts played by actual descendants of Fletcher Christian), ‘Light and Sound’ shows, eco-tours, glass bottom boat coral reef trips, swimming, snorkeling, fishing, dining out in the numerous fine restaurants, bush walking, scenic horse riding, golf on what has been called the world’s most beautiful golf course, bowls, tennis, and squash.
