With less than two weeks to go, preparations for Bello Winter Music (7-10 July) are in full swing in the little NSW mid north coast town of Bellingen. The town’s clubs, cafes and halls will host over 80 international and national acts including Willie Watson (US), L-FRESH The LION, Mojo Juju, Sahara Beck, Kylie Auldist (also of The Bamboos) and Tijuana Cartel. The in-town festival setting means punters can amble from gig to gig through the quaint streets of Bellingen (or ride the free psychedelic Magic Bus) and enjoy the music in intimate, cosy indoor spaces.
Bello Winter Music is a family-friendly, affordable festival for all ages with the emphasis on diversity, discovery and collaboration between musicians both on and off the stage.
While the musical line-up is a drawcard in itself, Bello Winter Music runs an environmental and sustainability mini-festival, Bello LeaF, alongside the music program which consists of a series of workshops and activities like Primitive Fire Making, River Exploration, Community Gardening and Rainforest walking tours.
Free street theatre, a festival marketplace and the Magic Bus also make it a popular weekend event for families. This year acts such as The Amazing Drumming Monkeys, The Cassettes 80s dance group, and magician Liam Power are on hand to entertain the young and young at heart.
