Australia’s favourite psych-rock, folk and bluegrass festival JamGrass will be celebrating its 5th year in 2015 with a brand new look and a fantastic lineup.

2015 will see JamGrass move to the outdoors, taking the music to the lush surrounds of Bundoora Park in the Northern suburbs of Melbourne. The festival will take place over Saturday 7th November and cram in as much music as your dancing shoes can take.

And then there’s the lineup.

Headlining this year’s JamGrass will be rising Australian star Harts, bringing his blend of classic 70s style rock, funk and blues to the party. Joining Harts will be some of the country’s best folk, bluegrass and psych acts including TinPan Orange, Mustered Courage, Quarry Mountain Dead Rats, Richard in Your Mind, The Morrisons, The Imprints, The String Contingent, The Stetson Family, John Flanagan Trio, Mr. Alford Country and The Drunken Poachers.

And if that’s not enough JamGrass will also be throwing a launch party the night before (Friday 6th November) at The Spotted Mallard in Brunswick that will feature The Morrisons, The Scrimshaw Four, The Ramblin’ Roses, Astro Cobalt, Little Rabbit and The Weeping Willows.
