Lighting effects shot out from the stages in a blaze of colour and excitement. Everyone
seemed to be swept up in the surreal carnival vibe of the moment. It was as intimate and
moving as a house concert, yet as powerful and raunchy as a huge stadium event.
-Tracey Hammell, Journal of the Blues, South East Queensland
Mitchell Creek Rock and Blues Festival left a damn good impression in 2013 and returns in September 2014 with more spectacular moments. This time over 150 artists will set the Mitchell Creek Valley alight with rock, blues, soul and roots, once again attracting punters like moths to a flame.
Set in a beautiful natural amphitheatre beneath bunya pines, cedar trees and the big starry sky, the festival has been hailed the best new festival in South East Queensland, acknowledged for its down to earth vibe and intimate festival philosophy.
This year, Australian all sister rock outfit Stonefield headline alongside Scottish songstress Sandy Thom,
rock goddess Dallas Frasca and a huge, hand-picked selection of Australia’s finest artists.
The festival provides private campgrounds in a beautiful Aussie bush setting with free onsite camping, plenty of toilets and showers, a beautiful big bonfire and no big queues.
The 3-day event features:
• Over 150 rock and blues artists
• Two continual alternating stages so you won’t miss a band or artist
• Limited tickets so you can get lost in the music without getting lost in the crowd
• 60 awesome market stalls, multicultural cuisine
•BYO alcohol
• Free Camping
• Limited passes available now at Mates Rates
• Weekend and day passes are available
• Students are half price

Looks like a great lineup.
If I lived in the QLD/NSW area I would be there.
The BYO is an interesting slant.
I offer my grateful thanks to those who have the courage to undertake the massive task involved to present such festivals.
The bigger they are,the harder they have the potential to fall.
We need entrepreneurs in society,who are prepared to take such risks.
If they were not,we would have no live music,apart from free gigs.

"An artist never really chooses when and where they will play.It is for promoters to make offers.It comes down as to whether tours are financially viable." Quote John Mayall.
