The inaugural Goat’s Head Festival is set to return to the Adelaide Hills this Saturday, 14 March, at the historical Three Brother’s Arms pub.
This year, the stage will be graced with some of the most iconic names in Australian roots music, from award-winning blues guitarist, Fiona Boyes, to blues veteran, Matt Taylor from Chain, and C.W. Stoneking.
Festival goers will also hear from the likes of popular Balinese group, The Unb’rocken as well as local favourites, Gumbo Yaya and the Streamliners, Anthony D’Antonio.
Alana Jagt is also performing, returning to her roots having recently played at Dashville Skyline and Big Sound.
The young musician will share the stage with festival founder and pub owner, John Jagt (who also happens to be her father).
For John, playing alongside his daughter embodies the initial inspiration behind the festival, to not only make Macclesfield a centre for arts and history, but to create an opportunity for talented upcoming musicians to launch their careers in the industry.
“The Goat’s Head Festival allows young musicians to rub shoulders and perform alongside some of the biggest names in the industry,” he says.
In addition to the stellar line-up, the festival will feature a smorgasbord of food and beverage stalls, showcasing some of the Adelaide Hill’s finest local produce.
In a region recently devastated by bushfires, this is the perfect opportunity for the community to come together and reconnect through music.
Festivalgoers can opt to make the most of the weekend with camping available at Macclesfield Recreation Grounds for as little as $10.
Alternatively, a bus service will be running from the Adelaide Convention Centre at 12:30pm for $25.
The Goat’s Head Festival will take place from 1:30pm to 11pm this Saturday 14 March at the Three Brother Arms Hotel in Macclesfield.
Tickets can be purchased here or by calling the pub directly on 8388 9265.
