Bruthen Blues & Arts Festival
Attracting punters with its lively rhythm-and-blues agenda, this year’s Bruthen Blues & Arts Festival festival will feature artists playing in a diverse array of local venues including Bullant Brewery, Bruthen Inn Hotel and the Bruthen Mechanics Hall. The festivities start on Friday night with the Blues Jam competition – an opportunity for passionate amateur solo musicians to play a short set to a blues-loving crowd.
Over the weekend, pick a spot in the dappled shade of the Main Street Gardens and watch this central hub come alive with free music, buskers, market stalls and workshops. Then on Saturday night the Big Blues Bash party will twang over at the Bruthen Inn Hotel. There are free and ticketed events across the weekend, and the option to buy an all-inclusive ticket that gives you access to the entire festival.
Bruthen Blues & Arts Festival also involves the famous Tambo River duck race, a market, a street parade, food stalls and kids activities.
