MUSICFEST 2013: it's back, it's bigger and it's better - but still just $40 (inc GST) entry for a single day ticket. And a two-day event ticket is just $60 (inc. GST).
Run over two days - Saturday 9 March and Sunday 10 March - of the labour day long weekend, MUSICFEST 2013 will feature an exciting line-up of Australian performers, bands, songwriters and rootsy eclectic acts.
Also featured on the main stage will be some of Phillip Island's and Bass Coast's leading local musicians.
Heading the MUSICFEST 2013 bill is 'earth-rock' sister act, the amazing STONEFIELD - four sisters, Amy, Hannah, Sarah, and Holly Findlay from Darraweit Guim. Young they may be, but they've played the prestigious Glastonbury Festival in the UK, at Pyramid Rock, and are now signed to Wunderkind/Warner records.

Also heading the bill is the enduring and acclaimed songwriter and performer DAVID BRIDIE. Formerly frontman for iconic Australian bands Not Drowning, Waving and My Friend the Chocolate Cake, DAVID BRIDIE has been an indelible a part of the Australian rock music scene for two decades.
We're also pleased to announce that cruisy, rootsy MAT McHUGH and his band the SEPARATISTA SOUND SYSTEM will be lighting up the stage on Saturday evening.

They'll be following the genre-busting amazing voice of NSW-based KIRA PURU and the BRUISE.
On Sunday, the country/bluegrass virtuosity of the DAVIDSON BROTHERS and BAND - Australia's bluegrass masters - will be firing from the main stage, as will soul/blues 'Black Arm Band' performer KUTCHA EDWARDS and his BAND. Also on the Sunday, O'Neill Surfboards ambassador, songwriter and simply beautiful vocalist, LAURA HILL will be performing.
