Head to the coast for a Victoria's biggest folk festival
Port Fairy Folk Festival is back for the 43rd year, and the seaside town is turning into a world music wonderland over the Labor Day long weekend. Thousands of music lovers make the pilgrimage every year to enjoy traditional and contemporary music from all over the world.
If you can believe it, this is the 50-year anniversary of Woodstock, and the Port Fairy Folk Festival is paying homage to its (slightly) older sibling with a performance from Melanie ('Brand New Key', 'Lay Down'), who performed at Woodstock. Artists such as Melisande, Marcia Howard, Tiffany Eckhardt, Nick Barker, Tomato/Tomato, Front Country, Les
Chauffeur a Pieds, The Naked Waiters and more will recreate the original Woodstock setlist.
But it's not all about looking back – Port Fairy Folk Festival also includes plenty of contemporary performers, including Alejandro Escovado (US), Daoiri Farrell (Ireland), Front
Country (USA), Gaby Moreno (USA), Jamie Smith’s Mabon (Wales), the Moulettes (UK), Resonant Rogues (USA) and Skerryvore (Scotland).
