The postponement has also resulted in a slight change to the lineup for the better, with Josh Teskey and Ash Grunwald re-joining the Good Times lineup alongside the new addition of Sam Teskey with his live band and Melbourne’s Floodlights.
Those who are able to make the new dates will be treated to live performances from the likes of previously announced acts Cash Savage & The Last Drinks, Emma Donovan & The Putbacks, Benny Walker, Surprise Chef, and loads more across the two-day festival.
The two-day festival will see Tocumwal come alive with vitality and excitement, attracting attendees from Melbourne, regional Victoria, NSW and beyond to support the regional tourism recovery and business economy bounce-back. As a multifaceted street festival experience, the Good Times program combines live music, art, food, workshops and local historical gems to showcase the talents of our regional towns.
On Saturday, the closure of Deniliquin St will transform Tocumwal’s main drag. Here punters can discover a prohibition-era Speakeasy Bar hidden in a heritage-listed building, have their palm read by a fortune teller in the Antiques Store, challenge themselves to a game of “relatively serious” pub backgammon, or simply enjoy the stellar live music program.
All entertainment is family-friendly. 100% of the funds raised will be donated to local community groups and charities.
Good Times goes down on Saturday February 12 and Sunday February 13 in Tocumwal, NSW. For more info and tickets, head here.
