Aireys Inlet Open Mic

With this being our last issue before the Aireys Inlet Open Mic Festival, it’s the perfect time for a good look at what’s in store. It’s a ripping little festival, after all. For those who love it short and sweet, the festival welcomes over 150 performances across three days and nine stages. It’s free entry, too; although festival-goers are welcome to pay what they think is fair. For those who love it a little longer, the festival is expected to attract over 5000 people. From full rock bands to solo acoustic performers, the festival offers a little of everything – including a Special Mystery Guest. Past guests include Colin Hay, Dan Sultan and Mark Seymour, so that’s pretty cool. From the festival’s website: “It is a positive festival where music lovers gather on the coast to appreciate talented musicians and their music. Our festival provides artists from all over Australia with invaluable exposure and performance experience. Critically, it connects and grows the young people of our community but is a festival for all ages and demographics. This is a festival for the true music lover. It is not a money making festival, it is a music making festival.” March 13-15. Hit for the line-up.
