Kyne­ton Mu­sic Fes­ti­val

As far as arty re­gional towns go, Kyne­ton is quickly es­tab­lish­ing a rep­u­ta­tion for it­self. Ex­hibit A: the amaz­ing line-up for its an­nual mu­sic fes­ti­val.

Time Out (Melbourne) - - MUSIC & NIGHTLIFE - By Re­becca Russo around Kyne­ton 3444. kyne­ton­mu­sicfes­ti­val.com.au. $20-$100. Oct 20-21.

CASH SAV­AGE, LOOSE Tooth and Dan Kelly lead the line-up for the an­nual Kyne­ton Mu­sic Fes­ti­val, set to hit the pic­turesque sur­rounds of this breezy Mace­don Ranges town this Oc­to­ber.

Sit­u­ated al­most half­way between Bendigo and Mel­bourne, Kyne­ton has had quite the turn­around in the past decade, tran­si­tion­ing from sleepy coun­try town into a cul­tural des­ti­na­tion for Mel­bur­ni­ans ditch­ing the rat race.

The mu­sic fes­ti­val, which is now in its sixth year, will fea­ture a stacked line-up of live mu­sic hap­pen­ing all week­end. You’ll be able to hear from the afore­men­tioned head­lin­ers, coun­try­blues pur­veyor Cash Sav­age and her band the Last Drinks, Mel­bourne gui­tar pop three-piece Loose Tooth and free-wheel­ing singer­song­writer Dan Kelly. They’ll be per­form­ing along­side Rolling Black­outs Coastal Fever, the Cac­tus Channel, Flow­ertruck, Karl S Wil­liams, The Twoks, Freya Josephine Hol­lick, Su­gar Fed Leop­ards, Foun­taineer, Dan Par­sons and heaps more.

The fes­ti­val will run over two days: smaller and more in­ti­mate per­for­mances will take place on Fri­day Oc­to­ber 20 at the Blue­stone The­atre, and the main fes­ti­val day will be held the fol­low­ing day, on Satur­day Oc­to­ber 21, at St Pauls Park and the lo­cal burger joint and bar Ma­jor Tom’s.

Don’t have a car? No wor­ries – the V-line train is only an hour’s jour­ney from South­ern Cross. Bonus for those bring­ing lit­tle ones – kids un­der the age of 12 can come along for free when ac­com­pa­nied by an adult ticket holder.
