QMF organisers break through the glass ceiling in a festival first
Tickets to this year’s Queenscliff Music Festival have officially all flown out the door after months of well-received line-up announcements.
With big name acts including Missy Higgins, The Cat Empire and The Waifs headlining the Bellarine party, it’s no surprise this year’s event has experienced the earliest sell-out in its 23-year history.
A fierce assembly of female acts, including the likes of Clare Bowditch, Melbourne-based soul quartet Hiatus Kaiyote, the unapologetic and proud Mojo Juju, as well as Canada’s Juno Award nominated artist and producer Alysha Brilla will each take to the QMF stage this November.
The legendary Tim Finn, intergalactic rockers The Delta Riggs, and Daddy Cool frontman Ross Wilson will also make their way to Queenscliff for the weekend celebration of music, entertainment and art.
Audiences can witness the thrill of Aussie blues champion Ash Grunwald, UK hit maker Newton Faulkner, grandson of R.L Burnside Kent Burnside (USA), as well as Joe Pug (USA) and critically acclaimed Troy Cassar-Daley.
This year’s program also features the friendliest kids entertainment the festival has ever seen, with Justine Clarke (Play School), The Mik Maks, The Vegetable Plot and Tiptoe Giants set to occupy the youngest ticketholders.
Due to the festival’s early sell-out, Queenscliff will open ticket resale facilities for people who have entry passes they can no longer use, and for those who missed out and wish to register their interest in purchasing any that might become available.
