Big names, big music

The Black Sorrows will headline this year's Macedon Ranges Music Festival.

Aussie legends The Black Sorrows are set to headline this year’s Macedon Ranges Music Festival in the event’s biggest lineup yet.
Front man and ARIA Hall of Fame member Joe Camilleri will bring his electric presence and dynamic show along with his full band for the Gisborne event on Saturday March 13.
Joining them on the bill is acclaimed Indigenous singer Emma Donovan performing with Melbourne’s best backing band The Putbacks celebrating the release of their collaborative 2020 album Crossover, which was named 3rd best album of the year by Double J.
MRMF favourite Nick Barker also returns to the festival stage in a rare solo performance alongside a long list of local Australian acts.
In addition to the stellar lineup, the festival also celebrates the best local drinks providers at the full bar along with a special cocktail bar from Macedon-based distillery Mountain Distilling Company.
The all-ages event also offers plenty for the kids with a jumping castle, mini-train rides and other childrens’ activities.
The volunteer-run festival keeps the good vibes on a high by donating 100 per cent of profits to the Woodend-based Cambodian Kids Foundation to support their work in providing education and healthcare to a rural Cambodian community.
This event is supported by the Gisborne and District Community Bendigo Bank and the Macedon Ranges Shire Council.
The Macedon Ranges Music Festival is on at the Gisborne Steam Park, New Gisborne, on Saturday March 13, from 1pm to 10pm.
The COVID-safe event requires that all attendees book tickets online in advance. Tickets are strictly limited and expected to sell quickly.
