We are excited to announce the 1st Band Announcement for Girrakool Blues Festival & BBQ.
This is just the beginning of what is going to be another great festival.
After the success of the innaugural 2016 event, Girrakool Blues Festival & BBQ, will hold its 2nd annual event between the 4th and 5th of March 2017.
Girrakool will once again see local, interstate and international blues and roots acts, performing across 2 stages, and held in the beautiful surrounds of the the Mt Penang Parklands Gardens on the Central Coast NSW.
With the introduction of camping this year and other great goodies, yet to be announced, it will have a “Real” Blues Festival feel, yet providing a unique twist with a comedic legend as MC, and strong aboriginal content. Patrons will also be able to feast on soul food including Texan slow-cooked BBQ and other specialty food stalls, immerse in the Aboriginal Culture, visit the Market Stalls and enjoy a wonderful day out for all of the community and beyond.
All this, without having to travel to far away places and easily accessible via the M1 motorway. There is no better way to spent the weekend with your family and friends, watching some great music, and relishing the culinary delights.
FIRST BAND ANNOUNCEMENT:
1ST RELEASE EARLY BIRD TICKETS ON SALE 15TH AUGUST
GET 35% OFF FOR A LIMITED TIME
THIS WILL COINCIDE WITH THE 1ST ANNOUNCEMENT OF BANDS
This year we will once again have some great music – INCLUDING INTERNATIONAL & NATIONAL ACTS but we’ve decided to go into the evening for a longer day of musical fun!!!!
Adding to the program will be MORE music on Sunday. Sunday is designed as a chill out day, we will go down to operating just the GIRRAKOOL stage and will finish up by 6.30pm.
CAMPING IS ALSO AVAILABLE ….. as this is only our second year we wanted to grow slowly and organically so camping will only be available Saturday night. Only Season (Sat & Sun) Ticket Holders and Saturday Only Tickets will be able to camp. Sunday only Ticket holders unfortunately will not be able to camp on the Saturday night.
We’ve also scrapped the family tickets this year, but have introduced Youth Tickets (13 – 17 years ) and Child Tickets (5 – 12 years). We think this will work out better in the long run for families who want to bring their kids. As usual kids under 5 years are free, but adding to this children under 12 years can camp for free and children under 12 years are free on Sunday.
We still have Buddy tickets (4 x Adults). This is the best value by far, so get your friends together now. We will also be introducing a payment plan, but this will not be available just yet… more to come on that.
The Line up is looking great so far. We think – as hard as it is to top last year – it’s going to be equally as good, but more of it. More Internationals, more blues… more of everything.
Prices will be exceptionally good when they go on sale Mon 15th, but they will not stay this cheap for long.
Check out our price list for this year RIGHT HERE …. and make sure your friends know by SHARING THIS PAGE. If your not registered please do so, or like us on Facebook, so then you’ll be the first to be notified of Early Bird tickets and Band Announcements.
Stay tuned The GBF&BBQ
