Village Fair Music Festival

Bathurst is set to host the annual Village Fair music festival this Saturday, the 24th of September 2011.

Since it was established in 1974, the festival has been bringing the best of the Australian music scene to Bathurst.

This year is no different, with the festival bringing Australian heavyweights Sparkadia, as well as a plethora of other acts to the town.

One such act are newcomers and self-confessed Hendrix and Zeppelin inspired act, Stonefield.

From Darraweit Guim, a town of just over 600 people, the band has been dubbed Victoria's new age answer to the Von Trapp family.

The band consists of four sisters, ranging from 21 years old to just 13. Their rise to stardom has been exponential, as they played to over 250 times their town's population at Glastonbury earlier this year.

Bathurst is lucky enough to be a stop in the 2010 Triple J Unearthed High School winners' homecoming.

Keeping with the theme of siblings, Northern Beaches brothers Oli and Louis Leimbach and their RadarRadio unsigned artist winning band Lime Cordiale will make their festival debut at Village Fair.

The young bands' performance at the festival could be a stepping- stone into the Australian market, as Village Fair has a habit of thrusting talent onto the national stage.

Call it coincidence, but ARIA chart toppers 28 Days, top ten in the charts Little Birdy and Sundance Kids, along with other heavyweights including Bluejuice, British India and Van She have all performed at the festival.

The full lineup includes: Sticky Fingers, Lime Cordiale, Stonefield, Snowdroppers, Ball Park Music, Owl Eyes, Bang Gang Deejays, Papa Vs Pretty, Sampology and headliners Sparkadia.

Local acts have also been announced.
