Fairbridge Festival 20-22 April 2018
Be prepared for an unforgettable folk, world and roots experience at Fairbridge Festival 2018. On the back of the festival’s 25th birthday year comes another unmissable event, filled with a diversity of delights and packed to the hilt with a stellar line-up of international, national and local artists. Think Euro-gypsy dance meets brass-fuelled ska; a hefty dose of uplifting traditional and world music meets quirky jug band and indie folk and swing.
Fairbridge Festival is WA’s most popular family camping festival. This friendly celebration of folk, roots, blues, acoustic, celtic, a capella and world music takes place annually in April, in the traffic-free, self-contained bushland site of Fairbridge Village on the South West Highway, 5 km north of Pinjarra and 100 km south of Perth.
Fairbridge Village makes for a wonderful meeting point. Graceful, mature bushland and sweeping views over the Darling escarpment provides a picturesque and peaceful background to the festival. Music spills from numerous marquees and permanent buildings; colourful markets add vibrancy; delicious aromas waft from the catering areas; and everywhere are the sights and sounds of happy people enjoying a fabulous and unique experience.
Presented by the not-for-profit organisation, FolkWorld Inc., the festival is a major event on the WA cultural calendar with a devoted audience base, a wonderful bunch of volunteers, and a dedicated Board. The festival has grown to the point where it receives well over 500 applications from acts, Australia-wide, wanting to play; and many internationals strive to make it a part of their touring schedule.
So come on down to Pinjarra for the weekend and surround yourself in an extraordinary feast for the senses!
