The Mullum Music Festival is a true music lover’s showcase. Perhaps it’s why people keep coming back. Why musicians keep wanting to play this left-of-centre anomaly in the festival scene: eclectic genre-frying lineups, free from commercialism, featuring acts that you have definitely heard, that you may have heard, and some that you may not have. Immerse yourself in the best of the Australian music scene.

‘It just gets better every year,’ proclaimed one happy punter. ‘It’s like a big community party or a weird sort of family reunion, where you get to see people you mightn’t have seen all year, you have a drink with them, a dance, watch a band. It’s four days not just of music. It’s four days in a funky carnival that celebrates being part of this amazing community.’

Mullum Music Festival reminds us of why we live here. Relaxed, creative and very individual. Diversity is always on the agenda, and this year the festival has definitely come of age. With more than 12 official venues and acts from the US, Canada, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and Gambia, alongside national and local bands performing soul, blues, jazz, flamenco, filmic, world music, hip hop, indie, country, alt country, groove and more.

Festival Director Glenn Wright takes an innovative approach when programming the weekend.

‘This year more than ever I booked the festival as if I was creating spaces and themes. It’s not just about booking the most popular act on the radio. I try and make the festival spaces work with the artists. It’s about discovery.’

November 21–24 in the heart of Mulllumbimby.

Earlybird tickets are available now.
