For a boutique festival Mullum Music Festival sure packs a lot into one little town. With more than 90 acts performing across 14 different venues, as well as markets, pop-ups and street performances, Mullum Music Festival is an adventure with new delights to discover at every turn. Festival director Glenn Wright provides one possible map of 10 things to do on your Mullum Festival magical mystery tour.

FRIDAY

1. Mullum Farmers Markets from 8am. Relax under the shade of the beautiful fig trees, enjoy a free concert by Cecilia Brandolini followed by Shelly Brown and the Fortunate Souls and eavesdrop on the ABC North Coast outside broadcast where festival acts drop by for interviews and acoustic performances.

2. Don’t miss Melbourne’s newest future soul and RnB artist KAIIT, who blew the music industry away at Big Sound recently. See her now when you can still get up close!

Friday 6.30pm, Civic Hall

3. Friday night massive at the high school with North African ‘Sultan of Shred’ Bombino followed by Afro-Caribbean dub maestro Mad Professor.

Friday from 8.45pm at the High school.

4. Get on the dancefloor with Thando and Osaka Monourail serving up the funk and soul at the Civic Hall, or festival patrons Husky playing a full band set across the road at The Village Vanguard. Friday from 9.15pm at Civic Hall and Vanguard

SATURDAY

5. Stretch into your Saturday morning with yoga at 8am and then head to one of many musical pop-ups around town with festival artists performing at The Other Joint, The Mullum Saturday Markets, Lulu’s cafe, Scratch Patisserie and Santos Cafe Bar.

6. Make sure you catch mesmerising electro-folk duo Saint Sister, direct from Ireland. They’ve performed Glastonbury and The Great Escape in UK and were the find of SXSW. Hauntingly beautiful and destined to be international stars.

Sat 7.30pm Civic Hall

7. Discover the Festival Club at Diner 55 and kick back with Melbourne funksters Sunnyside, vocal trio Mrs Miyagi, and the soulful roots and blues of the Wanderers.

SUNDAY

Sunday – parade starts at The Council Chambers at 11am.

9. Deep soul, gospel and ‘sacred steel’ blues direct from the USA (along with help from Backsliders Dom Turner) with The Turner Brown Band. This is the real deal and captivating.

Sunday 3pm High School

10. Sunday evening is party time. By this stage you’ll truly be in the Mullum vibe and who knows where you’ll end up? Celebrate the last day of your festival floating between performances by Gordi, Lior, Gabrielle Cohen, Caiti Baker and the amazing reggae / world beats of Mike Love – or choose your own adventure!
