Mayday Hills Music Spectacular
The Beechworth Music Festival aims to serve up a musical smorgasbord in the beautiful Mayday Hills with the stage set at the bottom of a lovely grassed amphitheatre with a backdrop of the nearby ranges. It seeks to provide local and regional artists with an opportunity to promote their music in this unique environment.

The line-up for the Beechworth Music Festival includes a range of up and coming local and regional artists.


Madman's Gully was the scene of a major gold strike in 1853, one of the reasons for the development of the town of Beechworth. It was also the site of the infamous Mayday Hills Lunatic Asylum which opened in 1867, later becoming a hospital which closed in 1995.

The Lunatic Asylum is long gone but the festival site is still a working farm but free camping is allowed. Camping conditions are described as very basic, BYO everything except:

No Fires or gas cooking appliances
No BYO alcohol
No glass containers of any kind
No pets or any other animals
No excessive noise on site.

If basic camping is not your thing remember Beechworth is at the centre of Victoria's north-east high country tourist precinct with an extensive range of excellent accommodation available. Check out the website www.booking.com/Beechworth for a great selection.
