This year’s festival was a huge success. Thousands of visitors were treated to a dazzling array of music in five venues, from the small unplugged St Joseph’s Church to the 400 seat marquee on the Showground.

And it wasn’t just about sitting and watching. Hundreds of people joined in with poets’ breakfasts, music and dance workshops and sessions, plus tai chi, yoga and meditation. With the warm sunny weather, first time visitors were gobsmacked by the sheer beauty of Kangaroo Valley and left grinning from ear to ear.

Mark the date for next year’s festival: 18-20 October 2024.
