Street Party Poster


Join us for a party like no other in Myrtleford as we close the Great Alpine Road and bring the street party into Myrtleford’s wonderful grassed Piazza.

PLUS there will be a special Youth Event in Queen Street, with two D.J’s on their own stage, with a stack of other activities especially for the younger generation.

Entertainment on the open-air stage runs from 11.30am until late in the evening, with hundreds of Festival goers enjoying the talented entertainers. Travas Hope and the team from SoundAlive Productions will once again provide an awesome sound & light experience.

Born and bred in the historic gold-mining town of Beechworth in North-east Victoria, Liv Cartledge is a rare find. At just 18, her husky tones, soul-filled lyrics and warm melodies married with a voice one can only assume comes from her toes, Liv will draw you in and leave you wondering how you got there.

IT’S A LONG WAY FROM CROOKED MOUNTAIN TO TAMWORTH! Especially if you’re a PIG!!

The Pigs are on tour this Spring Summer 16/17. Trekking from the Crooked Mountain Concert in the Warrumbungles to the annual Tamworth Country Music Festival… and beyond! Visiting all the logical sights on the way… and doing concerts!

Logical stops include: Melbourne, Shellharbour (NSW) , St. Arnaud (Vic), Narooma (NSW), Katoomba (NSW), Orange (NSW), Ballarat (Vic), Bathurst (NSW), Gold Coast (QLD), Canberra (ACT), Brisbane (QLD), Sunshine Coast (QLD), Sydney, Newcastle and Myrtleford (North East Victoria)!

See makes sense don’t it?

Misunderstood family band The Pigs play hillbilly pop and all things good. With a tempered history spanning 4 albums, one EP, Golden Guitar Nominations, world tours and sore feet, the band is known for its dynamic and entertaining live performances.

With double bass, acoustic guitars, mandolin, stand up drums, banjo and big bluegrass vocal harmonies, The Pigs developed their unique sound on the family homestead in a little country town called Balmain in 2005. Now, their kooky original anthems, Macho Moisturiser and Hey Christina are sung from Berlin to Bendigo and their ability to transform hit songs into downright footstompers is legendary.

See ewe soon!!.
