The other big festival announcement this week comes from our friends at The Mullum Music Festival. Held in Mullumbimby in northern New South Wales from the 20th to the 23rd November, the Mullum Music Festival has a reputation as one of the best events on the calendar.
The headliners this year are The Church, but it’s the rest of the lineup that we’re excited about.
Firstly none other than Cat Empire frontman and singer-songwriter Harry James Angus (above) has been announced as the festival patron, taking over from Mama Kin.
“Every year Mullum Music Festival shows me wonderful artists I haven’t seen before, and the artists that I have seen before doing things they don’t usually do – playing in the street parade, spinning out spontaneous collaborations, singing with the local choir. I’m proud to be the patron of a festival that does such a great job getting its artists out of the industry and into the community, where music belongs,” Harry James Angus said of the role.
And then secondly there’s a lineup that boasts a bunch of Timber and Steel favourites including Husky, Kim Churchill, Frank Yamma, Bobby Alu, Marlon Williams, Liz Stringer, Siskin River, The Mae Trio, The Twoks, Starboard Cannons, The Mid North, Tracy McNeil, The Yearlings and many more.
