We are super excited to announce this years line up of musicians!
With over 20 performers set to entertain the approximate 12,000 visitors over the two days.
Headlining this year’s event is Melbourne indie – pop artist Alex Lahey. Alex is creating lots of buzz in the industry following the release of her infectious tune ‘You don't think you like people like me’. Alex and her band will perform on Saturday along with Melbourne based alternative folk artist Josh Cashman, local psych-pop four piece The Attics and folk/country songstress Rach Brennan.
On Sunday, the morning will kick off with the return of children’s entertainment band, the MikMaks, who were big crowd pleasers at the 2015 festival. Melbourne duo Amistat will captivate crowds with their acoustic folk melodies along with sets from Geelong alt-rockers Residual. Rounding out the afternoon will be the energetic blues from locals, The Gin Slingers.
The festival also welcomes back popular regulars Orchestral Manouvres in the Marsh, Birregurra Ukulele Collective, Colac and District Pipe Band and the Colac Rock n’ Rollers who will also entertain the crowds across the weekend.
You can learn more about each of the artists here.
Set times will be released a little closer to the festival!
