Feedback from the Wirrina Bluegrass Festival to-date indicate that they have had some great applications from performers across the country this year. They plan for some great local-to-SA music as well.
If you want to be part of this year’s program, drop them a line and tell us about yourself (or remind them or update them about what you’re doing these days). The festival will feature bluegrass, old-timey and other traditional acoustic music at the festival, so there is room for a fair bit of variety in the lineup.
As in previous years, the festival will offer preference to performers who contribute to the atmosphere and love of the gathering, and who are willing to share their time and skills with all. So let them know what you might like to contribute – whether it’s something we have done before or not. The festival is still in nappies as far as festivals go but organisers are keen develop the event and to provide the opportunity to incorporate new traditions or activities.
Typically the festival provides a fairly small program, so will not be able to include all who apply. However, they are looking at ways to showcase a few more artists and bands this for year. There is a load of great music in Australia an organisers would love to hear about it.
This year’s festival is on September 2nd-4th, 2016. Once again the major sponsors are Ben & Holly at the Wirrina Cove Holiday Park.
This year organisers are looking for volunteers. Also, if you or your business is interested in talking about some kind of sponsorship for this event, please get in touch.
