Falls Creek may be best known as a winter holiday destination (if you love skiing, snowboarding or making snow angels), but for the arts, music and food lovers, summertime in the stunning alpine region is looking just as thrilling.
A brand new three-day festival FEASTIVAL will celebrate all things music, arts, comedy and food, and is taking place from Friday February 18th to Sunday February 20th. The festival (which is free to enter) is headlined by Boy & Bear, who are bringing their 70’s inspired Pop-Folk bangers to the Slalom Plaza on Saturday afternoon. Other musical acts include Miiesha and Didirri, as well as North-East Victorian locals The Northern Folk, Benny Williams, Liv Cartledge and This Way North.
Outside of the main stage, punters can be dazzled by performances from Flying Fruit Fly Circus (or flex their muscles in one of their workshops), laugh the night away at the comedy special with MICF stars Dave Thornton and Lloyd Langford, or find some local gems in the art exhibition and market. For the kids, there are activities run by the fun folks at The Connected Circus, while the adults may wish to duck off to a performance by the Melbourne Chamber Orchestra sextet, whose performance is paired with a degustation menu from one of Falls Creek’s award-winning boutique venues.
The fan-favourite, all-knowing Dr Karl will be presenting a fascinating talk on Great Moments in Science, as well as a comedy session fit for the whole family.
“We are excited to be adding FEASTIVAL to the summer events calendar at Falls Creek. After another disruptive year, we are looking forward to an action-packed summer and the opportunity to offer a larger scale signature event with a broad appeal will be a key highlight this summer,” stated Stuart Smythe, CEO, of Falls Creek Resort Management.
It’s been a long time since Victorians have been able to attend a festival, let alone a three-day one (and a while since local vendors and accomodation providers have served them!), but we have earned this summer of fun. Pop it in your diaries – we may see you there.
