After another brilliant November Bendigo Blues & Roots Music Festival in 2016, 2017’s supporting events will again be limited in number but packed with even more fresh talent and brilliant music, at some of our favourite local venues – our Winter Showcase/Fundraiser event for this year will again be at the Golden Vine Hotel.

The packed list of acts confirmed to perform at this year’s BB&RMF Winter Showcase event includes some of Bendigo’s best, along with some fresh faces and exciting sounds from the larger blues, soul, jazz and original music circuits who’ve put their respective hands up to support our not-for-profit community music festival.

From base camp will up-skill, vision, plan and implement a new world.

Newkind Festival

Newkind Festival 2017

Very excited to have been added to the Lineup of Newkind Festival 2017

17 – 20th March

Newkind is the kind of festival where the speakers and presenters are the headliners, and the art is a means of expression, not an end in itself. Designed as a participatory experience instead of a ‘watch and be entertained’ type of event. A completely vegan festival, a zero packaging event, and a ticket that includes all meals, drinks and airport transfers, on a pristine ocean front property in Tasmania.

“We do not surrender. We make our own systems. We play our own games.”
