The Bangalow BBQ and Bluegrass went off with a boom on Saturday, when the event sold out at around 2pm with 2,000 punters enjoying excellent music, fantastic food, and an awesome atmosphere.

Organisers were exhausted after a better than expected outcome – sublime weather and the generous efforts of volunteers also contributed to a great first festival. Dates for next year’s event have already been announced: Saturday and Sunday August  8 and 9. Earlybird tickets on sale now.
