Festival is music to our ears


WITH a spotlight on homegrown musical talent, this year’s Queenscliff Music Festival is set to be huge.
Featuring performances by Aussie music icons Paul Kelly and Charlie Owen, Peter Garrett and The Alter Egos, Killing Heidi, george, Ash Grunwald, Urthboy and much more, the music festival also offers a stellar international program, including Ben Harper and The Innocent Criminals, Julien Baker and Son Little.
With comedy legends including Doug Anthony Allstars, Denise Scott and Dave O’Neil, a jam-packed kids and family friendly program, gourmet food stalls for days and a top notch set of bars, this year’s lucky ticket holders are in for a big birthday treat. It’s the festival’s 20th birthday and its time to raise a toast to this boutique event that boasts a line-up full to the brim with incredible talent from across the globe.
Beyond the festival grounds, the picturesque coastal hub of Queenscliff will come alive, with free events staged throughout the township and in the streets, including the huge markets that cover the edge of the foreshore.
The festival is sold out for the first time and has been for well over a month, but fear not … there’s still a chance to grab a last-minute ticket.
For those who have missed out and those who can’t make it, the festival organisers will stage a ticket swap, facilitating a safe and secure system for those who can no longer attend to sell their ticket to a willing punter.
Visit qmf.net.au/ticket-swap for more information and to register interest.
