Hey! Do you want to support a great local music festival and get heaps of great benefits? Why not become a friend of the festival?

The Bendigo Blues & Roots Music Festival has comfortably established itself on the “must go” lists of discerning, cultural, curious, fun and friendly music-lovers throughout Central Victoria, Melbourne and beyond.

The Festival now attracts thousands of visitors each year to over 150 acts in more than 40 venues over 4 days and showcases local, national and international artists at the Festival.
