Music Program - The Basin Music Festival - 4, 5, 6 November 2022

Stay tuned ... the acts are in the process of being scheduled! We will let you know soon.

At last, the Basin Music Festival Association is bringing its 3-day Festival back to The Basin Triangle. Its been a long time.

We need to tell you the Festival would not be happening if not for the support of Knox City Council, the amazing effort of our TBMF volunteers and members, local traders and all you lovers of music. If you get hungry or thirsty grab something delicious from the local shops or have a bite at the local restaurants. 

Let's get this party started ... the music program is amazing - stand by for details

In the meantime, below is  a reminder of who played at the March 22 Concert in the Park.

Stax - respected digeridoo maker, performer and teacher got us in the mood while we found our picnic spot, got settled in, greeted Festival staf and fellow music lovers, and caught up with old friends and made new ones. 

Arnold Tihema stepped in for John Mortimore (Honorary Life Member) and delivered our acknowledgement to country and TBMF President Mark Grondman said a few words of welcome and thanks.

MC John Allan introduced the terrific acts. 

Spare Change - the powerful voice of Arnold Tihema and renowned guitar prowess of Ronnie Peers performed a mixture of soulful and funky grooves.

Siberia  played new wave, glam and classic rock covers. We danced like no-ones watching!

Cathy  Dobson is a multi-award winning singer/song writer. She is the winner of the Festival's 2020 Song Writing Competition. Finally we got to present her with her Sachar Amos guitar!

Moonshine Coalition has been sharing their music with the world since 2015. Max Lees and Annie Dixon are inspired by the sounds of Americana/Appalachian artists and had recently played at The Bluebird Cafe' in Nashville, USA and various venues in Berlin, Germany.

16 year old Jenna Campbell is an amazing talent and previous winner of The Basin Music Festival Youth Stage, Jenna's debut single "PHANEROZOIC" is out now!

Award winning singer / songwriter Rusty Strings (aka Ray Smith)  and his friends  played a freeform set of  jazzy folk and an extended version of an anthemic Aussie cover tune. 

Dr. Ric's Overdrive Especial with mates Mark Grondman, Ken Herrin and Ryan Lim have been playing for the best part of 3 decades…so they should sound a lot better than they do!

Playing together for the first time in 2 years it was like a rock ‘n roll death or glory battle right there in the Pavilion. 

Heavy metal pioneers, Bengal Tigers closed out the Concert in the Park. 

Our November Festival finishes at 6:00 pm on Sunday 6 November. 

Stay around and chat to the Festival team or even help us pack up. Fish and chips sounds like a good way to end the day. Once again, a big shout out to Knox City Council for supporting our Festival.
