Beechworth Music Festival

Have you heard the good word about the Beechworth Music Festival? From the lovely folks behind the festival, it is a “day and night of music, good safe times, free camping and a complete sensory overload”.
Other than a cracking line­up, is there anything else one could hope for from their festival experience? Now, before we get to the cracking line­up, an interesting tidbit: BMF’s home is located on the former Mayday Hills Lunatic Asylum farm in the heart of Beechworth. Beechworth is also one of Victoria’s best­preserved gold mining towns. Okay, so about the line­up and you have Briggs, King of the North, The Public Opinion Six, Big Smoke, My Left Boot, The Sugarcanes, Liv Cartledge & Band, Shewolf, Mutton, Richard Perso, Geoff Jackson and DJ Mermaid. Your MC for festivities is Cat McGauran. Liv Cartledge is a winner of the Telstra Road to Discovery.
By the age of nine, the born and bred Beechworth singer- songwriter was on the streets with her guitar­in­hand, using the money she earned to buy tools for her trade. Today based in Melbourne, Liv released her debut single, ‘Please Stop Messing About’, in August. Madman’s Gully Amphitheatre @ Mayday Hills, Beechworth – January 23. Hit for further details.
