The third and final lineup of artists for the Mullum Music Festival, held in the town’s venues and streets November 15 till 18, has been announced.

International artists Nigerian Bombino, Guyana’s Mad Professor, Jah9 (Jamaica) and Osaka Monaurail (Japan) will join national and local musicians for over 200 performances.

Festival director Glenn Wright says, ‘I think when we say diversity and equality, it is of nations, gender and music styles.’

‘There is also a common thread of good-quality music, and we are very aware of the local arts scene, our community, and try to include as many of these artists each year.’

Festival tickets and more information available at www.mullummusicfestival.com.
