Tum­ble­weed to head­line Aus­tralia Day mu­sic fes­ti­val at Beech­worth

Wangaratta Chronicle - - News -

BACK for its sixth year of bringing ter­rific tunes to a his­toric town, the Beech­worth Mu­sic Fes­ti­val is said to be brighter and bet­ter than ever.

With glob­ally recog­nised band Tum­ble­weed head­lin­ing the event, or­gan­iser Lex Fletcher is ex­cited for an­other suc­cess­ful year.

“We’ve had some great head­lin­ers in the past, but Tum­ble­weed have just re­ally jumped on board with pub­li­cis­ing the event and have made their own poster to share over their so­cial me­dia,” he said.

“This year we’ve done a lot more in­fra­struc­ture on the site, with great vis­ual el­e­ments and art­work but as the site al­ready works re­ally well with the food stalls and bar, we didn’t need to change much.

“A fes­ti­val like this gives peo­ple in the area a chance to see mu­sic they wouldn’t nor­mally get to ex­pe­ri­ence and it also gives local bands a big foot up in the in­dus­try.

“Each year it brings more vis­i­tors and it’s be­come a nice fam­ily friendly event.

“The big­gest things peo­ple like most about the fes­ti­val is its safe, has a friendly vibe, it’s easy to get around and it’s like a small com­mu­nity who re­turn ev­ery year.”

The fes­ti­val be­gins on Fri­day, Jan­uary 25 at 4pm with free camp­ing that night for the last day of the fes­ti­val on Satur­day, Jan­uary 26.

There are plenty of toi­lets and facilities on site, and Lex said camp­ing makes for a bet­ter ex­pe­ri­ence of the event.
