We’re bringing back a fun-filled four-day program of blues and roots performances, open mic opportunities and jam sessions. The centerpiece of the program, is a day-long family-friendly concert featuring more than a dozen acts over two stages in picturesque Rosalind Park on Saturday 5 November 2022.

Venues will not only be dotted around the City’s CBD, with street parties, hotels, cafes, our famed Art Gallery and park spaces, but outside the CBD. There will again be participating venues hosting live music as part of the program in White Hills, Golden Square, Quarry Hill, Long Gully, Eaglehawk, Kangaroo Flat and as far flung as Maldon.
