The Northern Beaches Music Festival is in its third year, just a touch later in 2013 than in previous years, running from Friday 17th to Sunday 19th May.

The festival is a collaboration of four music venues in Sydney’s northern beaches area: The Shack (Narrabeen), Humph Hall (Allambie), Fairlight Folk and Manly Fig.

2012’s festival was a wonderful showcase of local and interstate talent, with a heavy emphasis on supporting youth and emerging performers. Saturation coverage from Northern Beaches FM helped spread the word and the sounds over the airwaves.

While the festival brass are busying themselves sorting out the lineup for 2013, they’re holding a ‘Pop-up Fundraiser’ this Saturday 12th January at Fairlight Folk to support the festival, with RAPT trio feat. Ben Palumbo, Spasm Band, Renny Field and Ryan Collings (above).

The fundraiser kicks off at 7pm at William Street Studios, 3 William Street, Fairlight. Get along for an intimate night of music to support a superb up and coming Sydney festival.
