BAM is the newest addition to the Victorian music festival calendar

Red Square Music, the team behind the Mullum Music Festival and Bello Winter Music, brings their love of music to Bendigo next year.
The inaugural Bendigo Autumn Music (BAM) festival will take place across the Easter weekend, April 25 through April 28.
Kicking off its inaugural year on Anzac Day evening, this boutique family-friendly arts and music festival will be presented by Red Square Music, supported by the City of Greater Bendigo on a coming together of live music venues, pubs, community halls, cafes and other unique and interesting spaces to celebrate music and arts within Bendigo’s arts precinct.
BAM will offer music lovers of all persuasions an opportunity to come together and discover new music from around the globe, the country, and local region, with a commitment to program 30% local content. Artists from local communities in Bendigo and beyond, will be scouted and asked to submit applications, having the opportunity to perform alongside international headliners and national touring artists.
While the headline announcements are still to come, we can expect some top quality acts to grace the stage, especially with the calibre and range of artists featured at Mullum Music Festival and Bello Winter Music including Tash Sultana, Saskwatch, Julia Jacklin, Tex Perkins, Gossling, Mia Dyson, The Church, Nai Palm, Stella Donnelly, Rolling Coastal Blackout Fever, Marlon Williams, Jen Cloher, Harry James Angus, Olympia, Montaigne and Husky on their line-ups.
BAM is Red Square Music’s third regional music festival and will be its biggest to date. “There are no gates, port-a-loos, bag searches or endless queues, no VIP exclusion zones. We are committed to equal representation of the sexes in our programming and performers of all ages,” explains Glenn Wright.
“The existing energy for music and cultural events in the area is astounding, with passionate arts communities across Bendigo, Castlemaine, Maldon, Newstead, Kyneton, Woodend, Clunes, Daylesford, Malmsbury and many more. We are confident that BAM will contribute to that existing groundswell and further grow and connect in with the thriving local scenes.”
With the first line-up to be announced in conjunction with the full range of ticketing options, BAM promises to deliver something for everyone, with tickets ranging from full weekend passes to day passes which will allow punters access to all festival venues and events. Prepare yourself for a musical baptism with over 80 performances in 14 venues over four days.
