Inverloch Festival: does size matter?

March 10th – 13th

This year’s Festival is smaller than last year – they are using the three best venues: the main Hall, the RSL and Warrawee… and as a consequence, are running around 40 bands. This makes sense on a number of levels – 40 bands gives plenty of variety, although the same names crop up in several different configurations; and even if you strap on the motorised roller skates, you would be hard pushed to see more than 20 of them in a long weekend.

Inverloch has been a selective Festival for a few years – not everyone that applies gets in, so in theory, the standard of music should be higher. In practice, it is a great weekend…
