Over 200 Events Listed

 

We started this list for much the same reasons as our USA version.  It’s hard to find a single location that has a sufficient number and details of the many roots music festivals that take place in Australia each year.  We also like a simple list with relevant website links for easy connection, plus in some sort of intelligible order.  Below we present the festivals, first by date and then by name.

As we progressed through this exercise, we were surprised by the number of events we uncovered – many more than we initially thought.  Some of them were harder to find than others and, even when we did, some sites almost had their vital information hidden, as if to present a challenge for the searcher.  A case in point, the location of the event in some cases required a lot of sniffing out, in some cases a website or two just failed to list it anywhere.  Other sources were required.

The genres we used were pretty much aligned with the content of Listening Through The Lens but with a eye to make it as broad a definition of ‘roots music’ as possible.

So here’s our first go.  A number of festivals have not released their 2019 dates yet, so we have assumed the same month as last time.  In a small number of cases, we could not find anything much on the timing for next year.  We will look back regularly and update.

By the way, if you are looking at USA events in 2019, you can find our American version HERE.
