Parkes Shire Council are delighted to announce that the Trundle ABBA Festival is confirmed to return to Trundle on Saturday 19 October 2024. Make sure you set your alarms because tickets go on sale at 10am on Saturday 6 April 2024.

Now in its 10th year, the 2024 festival will celebrate the 50-year Anniversary of ABBA's win at the Eurovision Song Contest on April 6, 1974, with their chart-topping hit 'Waterloo'.

We hope you're in the mood for a dance, as returning to headline the festival is the world's number one ABBA tribute band, Bjorn Again. These super troupers put on a fantastic show at last year's festival and are ready to tear up the stage yet again with their covers of ABBA greatest hits. A stellar lineup of entertainment is in the final stages of being locked in, with official announcements to commence in April.

The festival will bring colour and glitter to the streets of Trundle as ABBA fans from all over the country descend on the regional town in their thousands for a day of F-ABBA-LUS fun.
