One spectacular location, one stage, 20 amazing acts – the 2nd annual Grampians Music Festival is on from Friday 2 February 2018 to Sunday 4 February 2018.

This unique festival is held in Halls Gap, in the gorgeous Grampians National Park. With breathtaking sunrises and sunsets, the Grampians have long inspired musicians, writers, artists and film makers.

Featuring up-and-coming supremely talented Australian artists, the 2018 festival line-up has something for everyone. From a haunting folk dandy, to synth-pop, brash blues and soul, indie pop-rock, and soulful synthesisers, the acts are sure to blow your minds.

Foot stomping fun

With 360° mountain views, boutique wine, beer, cocktails and plenty of food options - think gozleme, pulled meats, wood-fired pizza, South African street food and ice-cream sundaes, gin cocktails, a beer bus and amazing local wine, all your sustenance requirements are covered. Plenty of vegan, vegetarian and special dietary options also available and you can find out more here.

There will even be a fundraising sausage sizzle in support of Halls Gap's Primary School, Cricket Club and Golf Club who have teamed up to raise money for the kids and sports people of the town. So grab a snag and help out the town. And don't worry, there will be coffee to keep you going throughout the day.
