Musicana Wagga Wagga
Beyond Bank has been a major sponsor of the Wagga Jazz & Blues Festival for the past ten years and we are pleased to continue our support for this year’s ‘new look’ event.
Now in its 18th year, the festival has been given a new name and direction and has been expanded to include more musical styles and age groups. Organisers of Musicana Wagga Wagga say the new name won’t change the soul of the festival; rather it will keep the music playing for decades to come.
This year’s festival, to be held on Friday 8 November to Sunday 10 November, will have a colourful program including local and national acts, the ‘Battle of Musicana’ – battle of the bands, displays, DJ events, musically themed breakfasts, musical workshops and jam sessions. There will be a lively street parade where the main street will come alive with festive spirit, hosting buskers and street markets.
Festival organisers will also introduce an opening ceremonial concert and family day out, highlighting some of the feature acts of the festival which will be open to the entire community free of charge.
All proceeds from the popular gospel service will support our community partner the Forest Hill Rural Bush Fire Brigade.
Hope to see you all at the Festival!
