Brunswick Music Festival coming back for 2016

By Jamil Allouche

Get your dancing shoes ready for March next year! Brunswick Music Festival is coming back for another round of fun, presented by Performing Arts Moreland.

This will be the 28th time the festival has lit up Melbourne and it is the longest running urban music festival in Australia.

From 15 to 20 March 2016, performances will be held at the Brunswick Town Hall and other intimate venues around our neighbourhood.

Acts, both domestic and international, are being asked to apply right now. The full line-up will be announced in January. This festival is known for celebrating folk, roots, celtic, indie and world music, so there is bound to be something for you in the eclectic mix of artists.

Acts from last year included Buffy Saint-Marie, Alasdair Fraser and Natalie Haas, The Black Sorrows and Archie Roach. There is no doubt that this year's programme is going to be at the same high calibre.

Tickets will be available for each individual performance, with prices varying (there is also a $2.20 booking fee on top of the listed programme price). Performing Arts Moreland aims to price tickets at affordable levels, while also managing to pay the artists and running costs.

They can be bought either online or at the Brunswick Music Festival Box office, which will be open outside the Brunswick Town Hall. Concessions may be available for some acts for seniors, pensioners and students (with ID).

You won't need to pay to participate though; if last year is anything to go by, free events should be held throughout the week.

This time the festival is being sponsored by Moreland City Council and produced by Strut and Fret Production House.

It's events like this that make real estate in Brunswick so sought after. If you're interested in being closer to the action, give us a call.
