The historic rural village of Cobargo, on the NSW Far South Coast, hosts the Cobargo Folk Festival, now into its third decade. First held in 1996, this festival of music, dance, song, comedy, poetry, fun and fine food and drink attracts thousands of visitors to one of the most beautiful regions of Australia, the lush Bega Valley. Folk music is music that comes out of community. It includes the tunes and songs from cultures all over the world – Aboriginal songs, music and dances, Celtic, English, Scottish, bluegrass, Old Timey, African, Indian, Spanish, South American and more – a huge range. At our festival you will find concerts, workshops, dances, poetry events, singing and tunes sessions across a range of musical genres that make up our vibrant folk culture.
The National Multicultural Festival began in 1996 and has since evolved into the biggest occasion on Canberra’s event landscape. In the very beginnings of the Festival, it was a one-day event, eventually moving to a 2-week Festival. Over the course of the last 21 years it has developed into the 3-day Festival it is now, which allows Canberrans, national and international visitors alike to congregate in Canberra over one weekend for what is one of the biggest celebrations of cultural diversity across Australia.
The Melbourne International Jazz Festival is an annual, world-class jazz festival first held in 1998. The Festival takes place in concert halls, arts venues, jazz clubs and throughout the streets of Melbourne as the city comes alive with the spirit of jazz. Each festival program aims to appeal to young and old, to enthusiasts and the uninitiated, to encourage as many people as possible to experience the very personal impact that jazz can have on its listener.
Mullum Music Festival (MMF) is a boutique festival in Mullumbimby, a quaint but vibrant little town in the hinterland of Byron Bay, NSW. The festival has gradually grown from very humble beginnings since the inaugural event back in 2008 – a memorable year for Mullum with the refurbishment and renovation of the Civic Hall, the epicentre of the festival. The unique structure of MMF creates a special community atmosphere, adding a distinct and special flavour to the event, which festival goers hold dear to their musical hearts.
