On behalf of Oxford Street Party, The Observer is giving away two tickets to the epic music festival.

But to do so we are asking all you music fans to send in your most ridiculous new year resolution in 25 words or less.

Whether it's growing your leg hairs or learning how to play the triangle, write in and tell us your most outrageous resolution for your chance to share in one of the best new year parties central Queensland has seen.

The Oxford Street Party - now in its sixth year -  is set to feature some of the most talented artists around.

Queensland Festivals and Events managing director Josh Jones said he was excited to bring such prestigious artists to the region.

"After six years the word has certainly spread within the musical community that the Oxford Street Party is a must-play regional festival," he said.

"The artists love the energy the central Queensland crowd puts out every year. It's always pretty wild."

From Triple J favourite Seth Sentry to 350 and folk-rock band Busby Marou, the event is set to rock CQ.

Footstomp Music Oxford Street Party publicist Renae Brown said the event offered a great party atmosphere.
"It's a great day of live music with some of Australia's greatest upcoming artists," she said.
