Harvest Festival brings the country to Kingston
15 April 2016
Aussie breakthrough performers Stonefield will rock the crowds at the upcoming City of Kingston Harvest Festival.
The annual Harvest Festival brings a little bit of country to Kingston with top bluegrass, rockabilly and country artists set to perform on Saturday 7 May at Bicentennial Park in Chelsea.
This year’s event, marking Harvest Festival’s 10th anniversary, will be headlined by Stonefield just back from their successful US Tour.
The four sisters hailing from rural Victoria won the Triple J Unearthed High contest in 2010 and have been growing from strength to strength on the international festival circuit.
The event will also feature:
- a host of performers including The Age Hall of Fame musician Australian music icon Mick Thomas plus The Ian Archibald Band presenting their unique brand of country-rock.
- up-and-coming local acts presenting acoustic sets at the Jam Café.
- a Green Hub showcasing innovations in sustainable practices to live a better, greener life.
Kingston’s Mayor Tamsin Bearsley said the Harvest Festival marks the celebration of the autumn harvest. “Come along and be entertained by non-stop music across two stages, delicious food, ideas for sustainable living plus plenty of activities for the kids to enjoy.”
“This is the final event in Kingston Council’s fantastic Season of Festivals and we invite you to join us for yet another great event where our community can gather together and celebrate.”
The 2016 Harvest Festival has moved from its traditional location at Roy Dore Reserve due to construction of the Carrum Family and Children’s Centre and will instead take place at Chelsea’s Bicentennial Park.
Harvest Festival is proudly supported by Quest Cheltenham, Ray White Patterson Lakes and PBS.
