The countdown is on to Bello Winter Music

WITH just weeks to go until the second annual Bello Winter Music festival, the event organisation is in full swing to ensure it is a festival not to be missed.

Last year it was a family friendly event through and through and this year will be no different - while the musical line-up is a stand-alone drawcard it is certainly not the only aspect of the festival.

The inaugural event in 2015 attracted a significant number of families and organisers hope to achieve the same this year.

“Bello Winter Music obviously has a significant focus on musical acts but there is so much more to it, festival general manager Maggie Quirk said.

“We run an in-depth environmental and sustainability mini-festival, Bello LeaF, alongside the music program which consists of a series of interesting workshops, talks and tours.

“There will also be street theatre, a festival marketplace and the Magic Bus which is always a big hit with festivalgoers, young and old.”

Bello Winter Music also hosts a Youth Mentorship Program which is a fantastic way for young aspiring musicians to become involved in the festival and even to be a part of the line-up, performing live on stage at the event.

“We believe it’s important to nurture young talent and guide it in any way we can,” Ms Quirk said.

“Exposing young artists to established musicians and providing an opportunity for them to perform can be a valuable experience, giving them a taste of what it’s like to play in front of a big audience.”

Festival acts such as The Amazing Drumming Monkeys, hilarious Roundabout Theatre and talented magician and entertainer, Liam Power are also sure to be a hit with the young and young at heart.
