Nannup Music Festival

It’s a big weekend of music with the Nannup Music Festival, Friday 26th from 5pm to noon Monday 1st March.

It’s impossible to cover all the amazing music featured, so here’s a brief overview.

The focus is on an all Australian lineup with many WA musicians. Interstate acts should be good for travel to WA, however of course this can change.

Rocky Ridge Band and Main River Band, from the Kimberley, are part of the Remote Artist Access Initiative.

We also have the Alter Boys, The Nomadics, Amateur Retreat, Tijuana Cartel, Dan Howls, Ben Catley, Karin Page, Darcy Hay, Fieldsy, Oceanique, Lightnin Jack and Paige Valentine.

Phew, that’s just a taste of the incredible line up!
