“After a few site changes, we’ve landed at Lot 19 in Castlemaine, which is going to be a cute, little venue for it,” he said. 
 
The festival brings a diverse range of music to the region. 
 
Headlined by Northern Rivers psychedelic rockband Babe Rainbow, the festival also features a nine-piece African ensemble, Ausecuma Beats, and House DJ, Andras.
