Here’s news of another new festival scheduled for October this year – Foggy Mountain Bluegrass Festival.
Kinglake Ranges is set to come alive with the sounds of bluegrass on the weekend of 17-19 October 2014 with the first annual Foggy Mountain Bluegrass Festival. Supporting the economic redevelopment of the Kinglake Ranges, the Foggy Mountain Bluegrass Festival will showcase the best the region has to offer, in a family-friendly event with something for everyone.
Visitors to the festival will enjoy local and national bluegrass artists, music workshops, markets, arts and crafts, a bush dance and a gospel concert. The festival will feature popular and well-known Australian bluegrass bands Hardrive, Coolgrass, the Marville Family, and Nine Mile Creek. We’re also pleased to welcome the internationally renowned Davidson Brothers, who will be playing up a storm.
If you love playing music, you can hone your skills by joining one of the workshops being run by our professional musicians for guitar picking and banjo or fiddle techniques.
Kick off the weekend and kick up your heels with Clan Destiny at the Old Timey Bush Dance and Spit Roast on Friday 17th October. Saturday 18th October will be a day of music, art and craft, mouthwatering local produce, horse and carriage rides, culminating in a family-friendly afternoon concert featuring the best of Australian and international bluegrass bands. In the evening, you can stick around and enjoy more from our headliner acts at local venues.
Come and enjoy great local food, fun and music – bring the family for a fun weekend among the towering timbers.
Kids can enjoy playing at Bollygum Park, the best adventure playground in Victoria, while you browse the local Sunday markets.
For something very special, enjoy our uplifting Gospel Concert on Sunday morning.
Kinglake is a convenient hour and a half drive from Melbourne’s CBD, but there will also be limited accommodation available on the mountain and in the local region for those who would like to make a weekend of it.
By having a great time at our festival, visitors will also be supporting Kinglake’s talented local performers and artists, our incredibly beautiful local area, and our high quality local produce. Join our friendly locals for a weekend you’ll never forget.
