Live music is back in the Macedon Ranges! Having been the last festival to run in 2020, the Macedon Ranges Music Festival returns to the Gisborne Steam Park on Saturday March 13, 2021.

Headlined by Aussie favourites The Black Sorrows, Emma Donovan & the Putbacks and Nick Barker, the festival brings together some of the best local vendors and finest Australian musicians. The one-day event keeps the feel-good vibes going as it donates all profits to the Cambodian Kids Foundation to support their work in providing education to a rural community in Cambodia.

Taking a COVID-safe approach, the festival will still feature what audiences have come to love about MRMF. A family friendly environment is backed up with plenty of kids activities in the ‘Youth Zone’ to keep the kids entertained. Meanwhile, a full bar offers local drinks from Hanging Rock Winery, Harcourt Cider, Quiet Deeds Brewery and festive cocktails made by Macedon-based Mountain Distilling.


This is a COVID-safe event. All ticketholders reserve the right to a 100% refund in the case of cancellation.

Tickets are strictly limited and sold online only.
