Hello all, and welcome to the first Apollo Bayfest Newsletter for the upcoming 21st annual 2013 event. Big hello to the overwhelming number of new subscribers!
Early Albatross tickets for the Apollo Bay Music Festival are now on sale!
Some exciting news on who’s playing will be quietly announced to subscribers (you) and likers of our Facebook page in the coming weeks. As per usual we will be featuring the best performers in all genres and some exciting additions from overseas, along with familiar faces, and a couple back by overwhelming demand!
There will be some exciting additions to our 21st event. The Mechanics Hall and The Star of the Sea will both run on the friday night and we will feature an additional stage in the main precinct.
The very popular kids area has been expanded to include more activities and hang out space, and the Bar and Food area will of course feature some of the finest local nosh and slosh (not the best of descriptions I know, but it rhymes), in the newly designed, funkiest of beachside locales.
In addition to filming and paparazzing the performers we will be recording most of the sets at the 2013 event so that we can remember our 21st and you can say “there I was!”
Just like last year we have no corporate sponsors and the event will not be oversold. Early Albatross tickets are $125 each, all up this year (until December 24). No hidden fees, all bells and whistles. Kids 15 and under are free with a parent/guardian (two per ticket), and 16-17 year olds will once again have access to the spectacularly valued Weekend Youth Pass for $40.
Being a long weekend of sorts don’t forget to check out what else the area has to offer. Be it mountain biking, Otway flying, Apostling (while you still can!), Lighthouse climbing, rainforest walking, or just hanging at the beach with fish and chips, there is heaps to do!
Some great Camping/Accommodation packages are available that include tickets. These are all serviced by the free festival shuttle bus that runs half hourly between Skenes Creek, Apollo Bay, and Marengo on all days of the festival.
From all in Apollo Bay Fest HQ, thanks again for all your support and stay tuna for more news!
