Music royalty headlines Cullulleraine Music Festival

Three days of live music, camping and community spirit returns to Lake Cullulleraine Holiday Park this April for another edition of the Cullulleraine Music Festival.

In its fifth consecutive year, this community-based music festival continues to grow more each year, bringing together local, national, and internationally acclaimed musicians to provide a feast of diverse entertainment and engagement across a unique, family friendly three-day event.

In celebration of five years of festival magic, festival organisers have secured one of Australia’s most gifted and popular musicians Mark Seymour to headline the festivities, which is just a taste of the quality you can expect to find at this festival.

“Mark has been a mainstay of the Australian music scene for over 30 years through legendary band Hunters & Collectors, as a solo performer, and through a long involvement with Mark Seymour & the Undertow,” festival president Rob Biggs says. “He will be bringing all that history to his Cullulleraine show.”

Perhaps best known for iconic songs, ‘Holy Grail’, ‘Throw Your Arms Around Me’ and ‘When the River runs Dry’, festival goers can expect a powerhouse performance from Seymour.

Alongside the ARIA Award winning artist, you’ll also enjoy tunes from the likes of the engaging Sal Kimber & the Rollin’ Wheel, legendary Australian singer-songwriter Broderick Smith, renowned American fiddler Darol Anger & the Republic of Strings and the long-awaited reunion of one of the great local bands, Bushfire.

There will also be a range of market stalls, children’s activities, and a selection of food stalls to indulge in.

If this sounds right up your alley, there are a range of weekend, day and camping ticket options available to cater to every need and ensure patrons witness an amazing program across the weekend. If you’re travelling from afar, your best bet is to lock in a three-day weekend ticket, because why not? It’s also more budget-friendly to do it this way anyway!

What’s more is that Cullulleraine Music Festival is a camping event with a limited number of powered sites and unpowered sites at Lake Cullulleraine Holiday Park, adjacent to the festival site. Camping is also available at the nearby Bushman’s Rest Caravan Park, which is approximately 1.5 km and sites must be purchased directly with park. If you’re not a fan of camping though, the festival is just a short drive from Mildura where there is plenty of accommodation options available.

We’d recommend booking ASAP as camping sites are sure to sell out.

There will be a free courtesy bus running between the festival site and the campsites – so no worries about a designated driver!

It all goes down from April 12 to 14 2019. For all the festival and camping deets, visit
