A family friendly event, the Northern Beaches Music Festival is held at Berry Reserve and the Tramshed Community Arts Centre. The event is organised by local four venues; The Shack (Narrabeen), Humph Hall (Allambie), Fairlight Folk and Manly Fig, and supports new venues, spaces and opportunities for musicians and performing artists within the Northern Beaches region of NSW.
This annual event will be celebrating its third year in 2013 and will once again present a fantastic range of talented acts from all over Australia to the wider community.
Participating acts at this year's festival, which will be held on Friday 17th, Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th of May, include Ruido - Flamenco Blues, Original Snakeskins, Miriam Lieberman, The Solidarity Choir, Chaika, The Dingo's Breakfast, blakhatz, David Flower Band, Wooden Tongue, The Burnt Creek Deviation Band, The Lunch Mothers, The Mutual Acquaintances, Ben Osmo, FLIP, The Steamgrass Boys and many more.
Additionally, there will also be a range of workshops at the Mona Vale Music Marquee, including a ballet workshop and hip hop workshop for kids, a singing workshop and hula hoop workshop for all ages, as well as a songwriting workshop for ages 14 and over. These workshops are free for festival ticket holders, however registration is essential; simply sign up at the Mona Vale Music Marquee on the event date.
Another event to look forward to is 'Dance Club Saturday' at Tramshed; this festive event will present a very special dance line-up for one night only, including Chango's Club Salsa, Spyglass Gypsies, Grimick, Wooden Tongue, Tangocentric and Ruido Flamenco Blues.
Over the three days, festival goers are also welcome to make the most of the friendly atmosphere and stunning locations; you can simply dress up in your favourite festival gear or take in the northern beaches location under the night sky. There will be international food stalls dotted around the festival location as well.
A great community event for all ages, the Northern Beaches Music Festival is a great event to visit this May, and with ticket prices starting at just $33.80 for adults and $18.40 for children (including booking fees), it is certainly pocket friendly.
