THE sec­ond Johnny Cash Coun­try Fes­ti­val has ar­rived, with the an­nual event set to take over town from to­mor­row evening.

The Ar­ca­dia Cinema will be the site of the first part of the pro­gram, as or­gan­is­ers put on a show­ing of Stage­coach, a movie in which Cash starred.

It’ll be fol­lowed by a doc­u­men­tary, Johnny Cash Live in Den­mark.

Supreme Cash im­per­son­ator Paul Rye will per­form a 45minute set be­fore Heart­worn High­way round the pi­azza en­ter­tain­ment out at 1pm.

The day’s main event at the Stan­thorpe Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre (tick­ets $40) starts from 3pm with a DJ, MC David Iliffe open­ing the event be­fore Heart­worn High­way re­turn to the stage. The Su­gar­shak­ers, Leg­ends of the Opre and Dale Hooper round out the main acts.
