The multi-award-winning Queenscliff Music Festival is a four-day celebration of live music, family-friendly activities, locally sourced gourmet produce, fine beverages and more. Staged in November on the lands of the Wadawurrung on the beautiful Bellarine Peninsula, the festival’s beach setting and picturesque locations attract music-lovers from all over looking to soak up the laid-back vibes and the eclectic mix of music on offer.
This year’s line-up is looking hotter than ever, with headline performances by Grammy Award-nominated hitmaker Aloe Blacc; those much-loved lads from Philly, G Love & Special Sauce; and Irish sensation Foy Vance whilst on the national front, Boy & Bear, Katy Steele, Something For Kate, Illy, Dan Sultan, Liz Stringer, Ian Moss and Alice Ivy will guarantee those goodtime vibes for the adults, while the kids will be busy all weekend with a huge range of activities as well as live favourites Justine Clarke, Zindzi & The Zillionaires, and the Bananas in Pyjamas live show.
With the expansion of the festival to a four-day event this year, Queenscliff will light up one night earlier with Thursday night performances from The Badloves, JAZZPARTY, William Crighton, Leah Senior and more, performing in the beautiful intimate spaces of the Queenscliff Town Hall, Queenscliff Brewhouse, and Vue Grand Hotel.
Attracting more than 10,000 music-lovers of all ages annually, the festival weekend sees Queenscliff’s iconic streetscape transformed by live music augmenting the golden sounds pumping out across the three main festival stages on the foreshore. It’s the ideal weekend getaway for music-lovers of all tastes and walks of life, being just 90 minutes from Melbourne with festival-goers treated to the best the Australian live music scene has to offer along with a smattering of international icons while sampling the delights of local and Bellarine craft produce.
