The ‘Up and Coming’ new acts will debut some special new Australian blues talent throughout the festival, the degustational delights from Jarrod’s Shakes & Snags, El Taco Loco, and Trang’s Kitchen will keep you sustained throughout the festival. A pop up Record Fair with Vinyl albums to scour through and find that historic gem or find that special guitar you have always wanted at the Birdswood Guitar stall. Our resident local artist the amazing Bob Gammage will create ‘Live Performance Artscapes’ where you can be ‘part of the art’ again in 2017 and, will be auctioned throughout the festival.
