The Fountain Bar is back!
It’s all happening in the Fountain Bar over the
course of the Festival with an exciting selection of
Tasmania’s hottest bands, storytellers and singer/
songwriters - and it’s all FREE.
Why not help us launch the event at the Calypso Space Party (Opening Night). Join #BackyardBands favourites, Mighty Duke & The Lords as we kick-start the Festival in style on Wednesday in the #FountainBar.
Then kick-start the weekend with a big Friday night live-music line-up featuring the blues of Mangus & Co., the soul of Claire Anne Taylor, the ska of The Bad Dad Orchestra and the reggae funk of The Embers.
Don’t miss the all female line-up of When She Believes on Saturday afternoon or the world music program on Saturday evening featuring musicians from Afghanistan and Sudan.
Saturday night’s headliner is the amazing
anthropological mini-orchestra TEK TEK Ensemble.
Each night, mix master and selector, DJ Geordie will take over the dance floor for the last slot. A set filled with eclectic choices, some classics and experimental aural delights!
So get down to the Fountain Bar for a dance and a tasty drink, you might even discover your new favourite band!
