Tweed Daily News - - PULSE | ENTERTAINER -

FOR a bou­tique event, Mullum Mu­sic Fes­ti­val sure packs a lot into one lit­tle town.

With more than 90 acts per­form­ing across 14 venues as well as mar­kets, pop-ups and street per­for­mances, Mullum Mu­sic Fes­ti­val is an ad­ven­ture, with new de­lights at ev­ery turn.

But you might not be able to catch it all.

Here’s some of the things to do on your Mullum Fes­ti­val mag­i­cal mys­tery tour.


MULLUM FARM­ERS’ MAR­KETS, 8AM: De­li­cious cof­fee and break­fast made from lo­cal pro­duce at Mul­lumbimby’s farm­ers’ mar­kets. Re­lax un­der the shade of the fig trees, en­joy a free con­cert by Shelly Brown and the For­tu­nate Souls and eaves­drop on the ABC North Coast’s out­side broad­cast, where fes­ti­val acts drop by for in­ter­views and acous­tic per­for­mances. CIVIC HALL AND VAN­GUARD, 9.15PM: Hit the dance floor as Thando and Osaka Monourail serve up funk and soul at the Civic Hall, or pa­trons Husky play a full band set across the road at The Vil­lage Van­guard.


YOGA, ALL DAY: Stretch into your Satur­day morn­ing with yoga at 8am and then head to one of many mu­si­cal pop-ups around town, with fes­ti­val artists per­form­ing at The Other Joint, The Mullum Satur­day Mar­kets, Lulu’s Cafe, Scratch Patis­serie and San­tos Cafe Bar.

CIVIC HALL, 7.30PM: Make sure you catch mes­meris­ing elec­tro-folk duo Saint Sis­ter, di­rect from Ire­land. They’ve per­formed at Glas­ton­bury and The Great Es­cape in the UK and were the find of SXSW. Haunt­ingly beau­ti­ful.


STREET PA­RADE, 11AM: If you want to know what Mullum’s all about, you’ll find it here. Take over the streets with the Mullum Street Pa­rade Band, The Cas­settes, Dustyesky, Spaghetti Cir­cus, Round­about Theatre and spot the fes­ti­val head­lin­ers play­ing in the pa­rade. PARTY TIME, SUN­DAY NIGHT: By this stage you’ll truly be in the Mullum vibe and who knows where you’ll end up? Cel­e­brate the last day of your fes­ti­val float­ing be­tween per­for­mances by Gordi, Lior, Gabrielle Co­hen, Caiti Baker and the amaz­ing reg­gae/world beats of Mike Love – or choose your own ad­ven­ture.
