Max Jackson to headline Amateurs Ball

COUNTRY music sensation Max Jackson is set to headline the 2024 Ladbrokes Cairns Amateurs Ball this September, before taking the role of Festival Ambassador at Savannah in the Round in October.

From humble beginnings growing up in rural NSW to international touring, chart-topping hits and winning the 2022 Toyota Star Maker and a Golden Guitar for Best New Talent at the 2023 Australian Country Music Awards, Max Jackson stole the hearts of Tropical North Queensland at Savannah Sounds on the Reef in April and is a stellar signing for Cairns Amateurs 2024.

Fresh from playing at Nashville’s iconic CMA Fest, Max announced today from Tennessee that she is thrilled to return to the region to headline the Amateurs Ball before heading to Savannah in the Round Festival as Festival Ambassador in October.

Max will also activate her Savannah status with a promotional performance at Mareeba Rodeo on July 13.

“I can’t wait to return to Tropical North Queensland to share this special night with you all and bring the music to get you on the dance floor,” she said.

In a style befitting Tropical North Queensland’s social event of the year, the Cairns Amateurs tradition of racegoers swapping racewear for evening gowns and tuxedos has maintained its popularity for over six decades from the expansive surrounds catering to thousands at Tobruk Pool to a more intimate and glittering affair on the city’s waterfront. 

In another coup for this year’s Cairns Amateurs and what is being coined the Ultimate Tropical Carnival, Cairns Jockey Club’s exclusive wagering partner, Ladbrokes Australia, will extend its partnership securing the gala ball’s coveted naming rights.

Ladbrokes Australia Director of Stakeholder Engagement Karl deKroo said his organisation has enjoyed getting behind and strengthening racing in north Queensland through partnerships with Cairns and the regions.

“Coming on board for the iconic Cairns Amateurs Carnival continues to build our foothold in the region, and it is going to be exciting to help breathe some new life and energy into a carnival that is a bucket list item for most enthusiasts,” Mr deKroo said.

Tickets to the 2024 Ladbrokes Amateurs Ball featuring Max Jackson are now on sale via the Cairns Amateurs website. 

While situating the Ball on Cairns stunning waterfront, positioning the city at the epicentre of social activity, Cairns Amateurs organisers expect more than 500 ball-goers will be treated to the gilt-edged entertainment program headlined by Max Jackson. 

In a concerted effort to up the entertainment value with a nonstop program to keep the dance floor pumping, ball-goers can also look forward to live and local talent and ‘wow’ elements spanning high-energy choreographed dance performances and spectacular fireworks.

Delicious canapés and a sit-down dinner and drinks with premium table service will add to the enjoyment.

The Ladbrokes Cairns Amateurs Ball will be held on Cairns Esplanade’s Eastern Event Lawn from 6.30 pm to midnight on Friday, 13 September.
