After another bumper Bendigo Blues & Roots Music Festival in 2017, this year’s supporting events will again be limited in number but packed with even more fresh talent and brilliant music, at some of our favourite local venues – starting with the first Showcase/Fundraiser event of the new year at The Rifle Brigade Hotel on Sunday Feb 25th.

The packed list of acts to perform at this Showcase event includes some of Bendigo’s best, along with some fresh faces from the larger blues, soul, jazz and original music circuits who’ve put their respective hands up to support our not-for-profit community music festival – across two stages, in the famous Rifle Carpark and the sensational balcony overlooking Bendigo’s enviable arts precinct.

As always, these artists are donating their time and talents, as do the Festival’s volunteer committee and crew, to help kick start the kitty to pay for the Festival itself, to be held on November 8-11, 2018.

To continue to fund this predominantly free festival, your support and assistance is needed. So spread the word and bring a posse to the Rifle Brigade Hotel on Feb 25th and help grow the burgeoning music scene we’ve managed to revitalise together over the last few years in Central Victoria.

On behalf of our local venues, local and visiting artists, and all of us who enjoy a wide range of live music to choose from on a weekly basis, ‘Thank You’ for your ongoing support of grass-roots music events!

Tickets for the February 25th Showcase event are available at the door on the day and are $15 for adults, $5 for under-18s (with under-12s free), and of course free for our Friends Of The Festival!

The live music will start at 11:30am sharp and continue through till 9pm.
