Thank you one and all!

A huge thanks to everyone involved over the weekend. Performers, audience and volunteers alike – you are all wonderful and contribute to an absolutely fantastic event.

We’ll have a (very) brief rest before planning starts for 2020.

It might be cloudy overhead …

But it’s not raining here and the music is getting even hotter.

Just had a blinder of a set from Jenny Mitchell who’s on again in tonight’s show as well.

Looking forward to Grumblewood , Jessie Fenton and The Siffy Rivetts this afternoon. And then Across the Great Divide, Jenny, The Good Girl Song Project, The Chaps and Victoria Vigenser and Lindsay Martin tonight.

Plenty of tickets still, so come on out th Brookfield and join us.

The sun is shining …

The music is hot, the beer is cold and we’ve got a wonderful line up of concerts, workshops, performances in The Balladeer and dances to fill your day and/or evening.

Day and evening tickets available at the gate. EFTPOS for ticket sales only – bring cash for everything else.

Come and join us.
