On the weekend of the 19th, 20th and 21st Melbourne folk and acoustic fans are going to be spoilt for choice (well, more so than they usually are, the lucky bastards). We’ve already booked our flights and have mapped out an itinerary for Friday, Saturday and Sunday that starts with JamGrass, moves through The Workers Club Sunday matinée featuring Hat Fitz and Cara Robinson and will be capped off with the October edition of Communion Melbourne at The Toff in Town.
And while we’re super excited about every stop over that weekend there’s one thing that really trumps anything – the lineup of Communion Melbourne will feature a DJ set from Communion founder and Mumford and Sons ivory tinkler Ben Lovett. The first Communion Australia we ever went to (the one that was the final push for us to start Timber and Steel) also saw Mr Lovett DJing so it feels as though we’re finally coming full circle.
And of course the rest of the lineup for Communion Melbourne is not to be ignored. Howl at the Moon, Mike Noga, The Falls and Jordan Leser will all be bringing their substantial folk and indie cred to what is bound to be a night of amazing music. And finally the night will feature screenings of the latest Sideshow Alley episodes – really you can’t think of a better way to spend a Sunday.
We’ve already secured our tickets and word on the street is they’re selling pretty quickly so we recommend you get in now. For more information, including how to get your hands on tickets, check out the official Facebook event here.
