Get planning your Easter long weekend, because Blenheim Music and Camping Festival is back for 2018 and it’s boasting its biggest line up yet!
This rustic, working farm will be opening up its paddock gates over the Easter long weekend for 2 days of music, dancing, camping and all-round good vibes.
The Festival will kick off on Thursday 29 March, starting at 5:30pm, featuring 7 artists. Good Friday (Friday 30 March) will then roll in the Festival’s traditional day filled with 15 artists alternating between their two stage areas. You’ll never miss a show though because no two artists will play at once!
BlenheimFest is a volunteer-run, not-for-profit festival held annually on Good Friday.
Located on a working farm with stunning views of the lush Clare Valley region, BlenheimFest is a unique and boutique music festival featuring some of the best South Australian, national and international bands and musicians.
In 2017, 1,800 punters came to play under the whimsical full moon and raised $23,000 for charity and the local region.
Blenheim is definitely a feel-good festival where you can play AND pay it forward for a great cause. It’s family friendly and welcomes kids to come dance the weekend away with kids under 12 years old gaining free entry to the festival.
Blenheim aims to support all things local. This includes the billing of 14 of South Australia’s greatest musicians, the local wine, cider and beer, local food vendors who supply delicious local produce and local traders in the Trumpet Lane marketplace.
Although, given the community feel, Blenheim also has a BYO license for punters to bring in their own picnic baskets (and vino).
The line-up this year will focus on local South Australian artists but there will also be some bands from interstate and overseas.
On Thursday you can catch West Thebarton, Mia Dyson, Karl S Williams, and more. Friday will being Kiwi’s The Black Seeds, local superstar Timberwolf, Mojo Juju, Bootleg, and more. For the full lineup head to the Blenheim website here.
BlenheimFest 2018 will take place at Blenheim Farm (about 1.5 hour drive north of Adelaide) on March 29-30. Tickets are available from $105+bf, and you can grab them here. For more info on camping at Blenheim head over here.
