As the name suggests, Gorgeous Festival has one of the most picturesque settings in which to enjoy music, premium wines and local produce while appreciating the arts and culture of the vicinity.
On the back of a successful first year, the festival returns to the beautiful wine district of McLaren Vale on South Australia’s Fleurieu Peninsula on the 24th November 2012. A boutique festival that tantalizes the senses with music, wine, food and art, Gorgeous Festival is all about showcasing the local food and wine industries while creating a sophisticated yet relaxed atmosphere for everyone to enjoy.
Festival Director, Alistair Cranney, has created a music lineup that combines celebrated Australian musicians with fresh up and coming artists. Headlining this year’s festival is Missy Higgins who will be supported by Dan Sultan, Gossling, The Preatures, Butterfly Boucher, Hayden Calnin and Johnny McIntyre.
This year food and wine will also take center stage, as guests will have the opportunity to enjoy premium wines from the acclaimed wine region and select from the delicious food menu that rivals a five star restaurant while enjoying the picturesque setting.
For those who like to indulge in food and appreciate the taste of fresh, locally grown produce, Gorgeous Festival will be like heaven for you. Local McLaren Vale restaurants such as The Currant Shed, The Elbow Room, Blessed Cheese, Fino and d’Arrys Verandah will come together to create an enviable festival menu like no other.
