Australian Music Festivals 2020

Our list of music festivals in Australia 2020

Out On The Weekend 2019 – Photo: LTTL

 

Over 260 Events Listed

 

We started this list for much the same reasons as our USA version (see button below).  It’s hard to find a single location that has a sufficient number and details of the many 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 our second year’s edition of Aussie festivals, first by date and then by name.

As we progressed through this exercise the first time, 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.  Cases in point, the locations of the event in some cases required a lot of sniffing out, in some instances a website or two just failed to list it anywhere.  Other sources were required.

The genres we used initially were under the loose banner of ‘roots music’ but, as we have progressed, found any genre definitions to be overly restrictive.  So we have branched out into any event we could find.  Often most of these gatherings have a wide range of artists and styles anyway.  Let you, the reader, be the judge when you look at the line-up as to the level of attraction attending a specific event.

So here’s our second edition.  A significant number of festivals have released their 2020 dates.  For those that have not, the by-date list assumes a similar calendar spot as in 2019 with a ‘tba’ (to be announced) tab.  We will look back regularly and update this table.
