Rock heavyweights including Jimmy Barnes and Richie Sambora and Orianthi are coming to Forster Tuncurry as part of a new festival.

The Under The Southern Stars event will come to the Harry Elliott Oval, Tuncurry, on January 6. 

The festival will also head to the Mornington Peninsula on January 7.

Other names confirmed on the bill include Diesel, Richard Clapton, Ash Grunwald and Dallas Crane.

"This is a bill I'm looking forward to being a part of!" Barnes told online music magazine themusic.com.au.

"This show will definitely rock. In the middle of summer, what would you want to do but get out with your mates and have a party?  Join us. I think there will be a few surprises on the day."

Tickets for both dates go on sale on Monday (November 13).
