    Hi Sarah,

    I’ll pass this query on to a couple of festival organisers. There is a list of Australian bluegrass festivals on this site also – see the tab above or use this link

    Which festival would depend on what time of year you are planning to travel to Oz.

    Good Afternoon,
    My Name is Sarah FItzmaurice. My twin sister Maria and I front for the up and coming, energetic Bluegrass group, Fitzmaurice Band. I would like some information on as to what festivals/ theaters are available for my band to play over there. Any information you have is helpful. Thank you for your time.
