2017 Festival

Artist applications now open and award nomination

A little over a month ago the curtain went down on the 2017 Festival, and it seems like almost a lifetime ago. We were privileged to be welcomed to country by elders of the Peek Whurrong people and be part of Taarndeedn Chuurnuurn – Big River – The Milky Way opening ceremony, which we are delighted to announce has been nominated for Reconciliation Victoria’s Community HART Awards.

The festival was and will continue to be a celebration of arts, culture and community. The festival celebrates traditions and the new. This year Jimi Hocking picked up the baton from Rick E Vengeance for the Big Sunday Sing Out, we had our first Ukulele Ceilidh, we presented the one off production of The Last Waltz Revisited featuring a host of glorious festival artists, and of course we showcased so many wonderful artists from across our country and the globe….. and now we are busily working on 2018.

Artist applications for 2018 open today, and close on 14 July.

We hope your 2017 is safe and wonderful and we hope to see many of you in 2018.
