With Mullum Music Festival (17-20 Nov) just three weeks away, organisers have just announced the Gala Opening Night on Thursday featuring Lior, William Crighton, Hat Fitz & Cara and many others, has sold out and the festival is on track to selling out Friday, Saturday and Sunday tickets. So if you want to get up close to the likes of Olympia, Tash Sultana, Eilen Jewell, Julien Baker, Gareth Liddiard or any of the other 80 or so artists that will be performing in venues throughout the town of Mullumbimby, you better get a wriggle on.
“2016 has been our best year yet for ticket sales and we’re thrilled,” says Festival Director Glenn Wright “I think this year’s line-up is one of the strongest, most adventurous ones we’ve put together – there’s great mix of musical styles, emerging and high profile acts, internationals and locals. We’re also really proud of the way we’ve grown Mullum Festival in a quiet, steady way over the past 9 years. We’ve kept it small, intimate and relaxed, focussing on giving people the best experience and music we can while retaining the community feel of Mullumbimby.”
Diverse programming is also key, giving audiences a chance to discover acts and music they may not have considered their ‘thing’. Mullum will gives you access to over 80 different international and Australian acts covering everything from blues to breakbeat, pop to hip-hop, funk to folk and rock and much more in between. A Russian men’s choir isn’t something that would usually pop up on your playlist, but at Mullum you’ll find yourself in the joyous throng of one between sets. Every one of the eight main music venues at Mullum Music Festival offers an eclectic program. The hard working staff and volunteers of Mullum spend a lot of time moving chairs to cater for everything from wild dancefloors to pin-drop performances in the one space.
And that’s just the music. There’s also comedy, theatre, dance flashmobs, workshops, markets, delicious food at stalls and restaurants, local crafted beer, free rides around town on a magic psychedelic bus, lots of family-friendly activities and a street parade on Sunday morning.
Mullum Music Festival is just around the corner, get on board while you can. www.mullummusicfestival.com
