Word is that tickets are rolling out the door, and the available accommodation in Castlemaine is starting to fill.
Given the size of the Festival, we have had to put on another venue – The Cumberland Hotel, which is right in the middle of town. The captain and I had a quite little ale there a few weeks’ ago – friendly staff, cold beer and a perfect room for 50 or 60 people to listen to a band or seven.
This week’s featured artists include:
- The Ish Allen Project: They are being featured on Main FM local radio this week as part of the Festival promotion.
- B3 Madness: Nicole Thorne trio who were outstanding at Halls Gap
- Daylesford Swing Band : all twenty of them . Didn’t know twenty people lived in Daylesford.. part of the New Northern Big Band session on Sunday
