Lovers of fine music will be pleased to hear that the Bangalow Music Festival is coming back in 2021, after being postponed due to COVID in 2020.

Early bird tickets are now on sale for the 19th edition of the APRA AMCOS nominated event, which will take place at the historic A&I Hall in Bangalow from Thursday 12 August through to Sunday 15 August this year.

The Bangalow Music Festival is proudly owned, operated and presented by Southern Cross Soloists (SXS), one of Australia’s most formidable and long-running chamber music ensembles.

Building on success

Artistic director of the festival Tania Frazer said, ‘We cannot wait to build on the tremendous success of our APRA AMCOS nominated 18th BMF 2019.

‘Cancelling last year’s event was so disappointing for us, as the festival is always a major highlight in our annual calendar of activities.

‘We are really looking forward to working closely with our supporters and partners to deliver an even better BMF in August 2021,’ said Ms Frazer.

‘This year’s program celebrates the joy music brings us and the important place it has in all of our lives. Something we are now much more aware of due to the restrictions faced over the last twelve months,’ she said.

‘I am currently putting the finishing touches to the 2021 program which is looking very exciting and will be announced in full in the coming months.’

Organisers say the 19th Bangalow Music Festival will feature the SXS and highly acclaimed chamber music ensembles, plus leading Australian and international soloists in ‘a wonderland of musical works and genres inspired by friendships.’

The full program will be available after the 19th BMF 2021 official launch in mid-April.

Early Bird Tickets can be purchased now for the Bangalow Music Festival here. These ticket savings are only available until Friday 16th April 2021.
