The Bangalow Music Festival
in August.

The Bangalow Music Festival have released the program for the 19th edition in Bangalow across the winter weekend of 12–15 August. Virtuoso soloists will come from as far as New Zealand and from across Australia to celebrate the best of chamber music in the historic A&I Hall, Bangalow. Music in its full technicolour glory has the fundamental ability to unleash a multidimensional mix of emotions that transcend the spoken word. Music radiates inexhaustible joie de vivre with its vitalising energy, and strange, indescribable undercurrent of nostalgia. Take in a concert or two, or three.

This event starts with a prequel on 11 August: the Schools Concert and the Locals’ Night feature the emerging artists of tomorrow. From then to the farewell on Sunday, the weekend is wall-to-wall music – this is a stellar event and if you love music, then this is the place to be.
