Breaking the serenity at Bonnie Doon Music Festival
THIRD time running and it’s on with the show for Chris Wilson and his Bonnie Doon Music and Buskers Festival to be held on February 19, 20 and 21.
However, for Chris the format has changed this year and the festival – with some huge band names returning this year – will basically be a one day music fair.
“To keep costs to a minimum and to attract more people, I have kept the festival to the Saturday only, with a one day charge, but still some great performers entertaining on three stages throughout the day and night,” Chris said.
The Friday night will be an open stage for anyone who wants to come and ‘jam’.
“Saturday will see performances by Rattlin’ Cane, Stag Hens and The Hollands along with many of last year’s performers coming back – just because they love it,” Chris said.
Apart from the main stage there will be country music and line dancing in the recreation hall and the ‘walk up’ stage where performers just come on in, put their names on the board and play for 15-20 minutes.
This year a poet’s corner will also be introduced, particularly over Sunday breakfast.
Sunday will again see some great performers on stage, but this day will again be for free – just come on down and enjoy the variety of music and performers.
Camping will be available but must be booked ahead of time.
