The first thing you notice when you walk through Port Macquarie's Breakwall Holiday Park is the hats. Hundreds of wide-brimmed, well-worn or newly bought country-style hats.
It's a completely different dress code to that of a week earlier when the park hosted the return of the Festival of the Sun (FOTSUN).
The same organisers are behind the two-day camping festival Boots & Beach, which kicked off Friday (May 27) and featured headline performances from Lee Kernaghan, Fanny Lumsden, the Wolfe Brothers and more.
It is Port Macquarie's first country music festival and has drawn two-and-a-half thousand fans and campers.
They've come from across the region and from out west, including Trangie and the traditional capital of country music, Tamworth.
The rain kept away on Friday night but returned on Saturday. Regardless, it looks like the home of the Golden Guitar has a challenger.
