''For a number of years now, The DAG Sheep Station in Nundle has coincided with the Tamworth Country Music Festival and brought some spectacular performers and artists to the area. Known as one of the best musical-performance spaces in Australia, the DAG Sheep Station has not only housed spectacular acts, but has introduced bright, new starts in training to the music scene through it's many Songwriter's Retreats events. The reputation of The DAG is strong and high and continues to grow''.
''January 2017 was no exception with crowds exceeding expections with 8 shows on offer sold out! The highest turn out seen in 8 years. No doubt The DAG is doing everything right. Escpecially when looking at who performed at this year's Country at the DAG - 2016 Tamworth Country Music Festival and note their willingness to return in 2018 to perform all over again''.
