Queenscliff Music Festival 2019 announces its first lineup of international and home-grown hit makers

The music jewel of the Bellarine the Queenscliff Music Festival has given a taste of what’s to come at this year’s event, announcing a handful of iconic local and global artists for its first lineup reveal.

Returning for its 23rd year, the Peninsula will soon see an eclectic mix of homegrown and international performers.

Acts unveiled so far include multi-award winning singer-songwriter Missy Higgins; multi-talented musician, broadcaster and sometime actor Clare Bowditch; country music star Troy Cassar-Daley; blistering blues-rocker Ash Grunwald; New Zealand legend Tim Finn, and British percussive guitar master Newton Faulkner.

Spectacular showmen The Cat Empire; Melbourne’s own future soul quartet and (twice Grammy hopefuls!) Hiatus Kaiyote; folk trio stalwarts The Waifs and fan favourite intergalactic rockers The Delta Riggs will also be heading to the Bellarine in November.

A weekend-long celebration of live music, family-friendly activities, craft beers, fine wines, local produce and more, it’s no wonder the Queenscliff Music Festival and its picturesque locations attract musicians, entertainers and visitors from all over the country as well as overseas.

The festival team are also incredibly aware of their environmental footprint as an event that sees approx 20,000 people come through each year, and are immensely proud of the 90.07% of waste they were able to divert from landfill in 2018. The Queenscliff Music Festival have recycled all plastics into picnic tables and benches, so attendees of this year’s festival will most likely be sitting on and eating off the results of this great initiative.

And in recent ticket news, weekend passes and Camping & Glamping are on sale now with single day tickets going on sale on the 1st of July.

The 23rd Queenscliff Music Festival will run from 22nd – 24th November 2019.
