The Friday night will have a jazz ‘n’ blues feel. Saturday early afternoon will be a showcase for new singers and songwriters and folk music, and later on the tempo will step up a notch with hi-octane performances from The Gangsters and One Eyed Cats.

Sunday will feature a more classical style in the afternoon, with local favourites Tin Pigeons rounding off the weekend. Scroll down this page to see the full line up.
