Early bird tickets have sold out for the 2019 Macedon Ranges Music Festival as this year’s event shapes up to be the biggest yet with a lineup of world class Australian artists coming to the Gisborne Steam Park on Saturday March 2nd. The boutique event promises something for everyone with music traversing genres including blues, rock, jazz, soul, folk and dance music. Melbourne-based outfit Husky will headline the family friendly festival with their indie-rock music that has seen them tour to sold out shows around the world. Returning festival favourite Lloyd Spiegel will also be bringing his biggest show yet that has stunned audiences globally.

While music-lovers will have their hands full, fans of food and drink will be excited by what’s on offer at this year’s festival. A new expanded bar layout will showcase Macedon’s own Mountain Distilling gin cocktails, Hanging Rock Winery, Harcourt Cider and Quiet Deeds Brewery’s beer range. These will be complemented by an assortment of food trucks. There is plenty also for the young ones (and young at heart) with virtual reality, jumping castle and face painting adding to the festivities.

Topping it all off is the fact that 100% of ticket sales are donated directly to the Woodend-based charity Cambodian Kids Foundation to support their community development work in rural Cambodia.

The Festival’s two 2019 sideshows will be held at the Macedon Railway Hotel on February 2nd and Wine O’Clock Wine Bar Gisborne on February 23rd. Visit our website for more information on these special nights!

The Festival would like to thank its major sponsors Creative Victoria, Gisborne & District Community Bendigo Bank Branch and the GREAT organisation for their support in making this event possible.
