The Macedon Ranges will come alive to the sounds of the Kyneton Music Festival this October when the annual party in the park returns to the Goldfields for its eighth year.
Taking place over two days on Friday 25 and Saturday 26 October, the annual Festival will immerse itself in the town with Kyneton’s iconic Piper Street the centre of all the action with one hell of a lineup for 2019!
Kicking things of in fine style with Ross McLennan’s (Snout) brand-spankin’ new project, (a 10 piece orchestra no less), Ross McLennan’s New World Symphony, Wollongong’s queer noisy pop duo Cry Club, Canberra’s Glitoris bring their next-level punk rock stage presence and provocative and politically-driven songs and cult Melbourne electronic rockers Black Cab will take to the Bluestone Theatre stage on Friday night.
On Saturday St Paul’s Park on Piper Street will host the main stage, alongside favourite music venue Major Tom’s next door, with local and national artists performing from midday into the evening.
Saturday’s line up is all-encompassing featuring guitar-pop outfit Cool Sounds, Ryan Downey’s mesmeric baritone and perfect blend of pop, rock and folk, dreamy psych-pop of Murmurmur, cathartic guitar pop of Quivers, Martin Frawley (Twerps) in full band mode, Hobsons Bay Coast Guard’s psych-surf with infectious pop hooks, Melbourne’s slacker pop, synthwave, art-rock band Jade Imagine, Melbourne’s heaviest funk rhythm section The Putbacks blend modern soul, future funk, vintage cinematic beats and time-traveling jazz, Macedon Ranges Findlay Sisters better know as the psych-rock opal that is Stonefield and the expansive sounds of critically-acclaimed songwriter Ali Barter all on the main stage in St Pauls park.
Feast on local culinary delights found along Piper Street and a fine selection of food trucks in St Paul’s Park while enjoying the sounds of the Festival in the picturesque surrounds of the historic town.
Now in its eighth year, Kyneton Music Festival attracts local and metro music lovers to the scenic and serene Macedon Ranges region. Just an hour from Melbourne by train or car, Kyneton is renowned for its creative community nestled amongst the Macedon Ranges. A small festival in size and numbers but big in the artists it attracts.
