At Mullum Music Festival this year its beard meets banjo, flannelette meets fiddle, and double denim bluegrass inspired Americana meets a rocking roll call of emerging and established Australian talent. One of the country’s hippest festivals, Mullum Music, now in its 9th year is set to unleash its finest line-up yet on the pubs, clubs, halls and streets of the NSW north coast town of Mullumbimby from 17-20 Nov. While ‘schoolies’ rages in nearby Byron Bay, locals and visitors in-the-know get on down in Mullum town.

Internationals for Mullum Music Festival this year include a little bit of Idaho when Americana inspired singer songwriter Eilen Jewell rides her ‘Half-Broke Horse’ into town with vivid lyrics and steel guitars; Vancouver duo The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer cook up some mean and dirty blues; Tennessee singer-songwriter Julien Baker breaks our hearts with ethereal beauty as part of her 2016 national tour; and the big man of Canadian blues, Mr Matt Andersen makes honest men and women of us all.

Australian highlights include the dynamic 20 year old Tash Sultana; Melbourne’s ultra cool Olympia; outlaw country rock band Henry Wagons & The Only Children; angel voiced singer songwriter, Lior who is set to release a new single in time for Mullum; Hat Fitz & Cara; Jordie Lane; and the loving musical embrace of Bobby Alu and the Palm Royale.

From the people who bought you a sell out Bello Winter Fest, its time to see what summer has in store with Mullum Music Festival when over 80 artists perform over 4 days in 12 venues throughout the little town of Mullumbimby.

Full lineup to be announced 1 August.
