18th - 20th November 2022
Spend the weekend listening to the exciting sounds of bluegrass, gospel, old time string bands, and traditional country music in the beautiful, heritage listed grounds of Mayday Hills, in historic Beechworth. Full weekend and day passes will be available, and you can book on site accommodation, so you can be amongst the action all weekend! There are of course many other accommodation options in the town.
Usually at the Mountaingrass Festival, you would expect to see overseas artists. However, due to international travel restrictions, this year we will showcase the very best of Australia’s bluegrass and old time string bands.
We are also proud to include fabulous bluegrass bands hailing from Beechworth, Victoria’s fast-growing hotbed of bluegrass music!
Our line-up this year includes Bluestone Junction, Bluegrass Parkway, The Cherry Pickers, Corn Nut Creek. Local acts include Paul Wookey and Monroe’s Mill, Pete Denahy and friends, and The Kissin’ Cousins.
Mountaingrass is an inclusive event that encourages attendees to participate, so bring your fiddle, guitar, banjo, mandolin and double bass along, and attend workshops for players of all levels. You can also join one of the guided slow jams or singing sessions. Been playing a while? Then why not perform a couple of tunes on our walk-up blackboard stage or in the popular blackboard gospel concert held on Sunday morning.
Beechworth, Victoria, is an historic gold-mining town full of heritage architecture, local history museums and boutique shopping. There are two breweries, many wineries close by and great food. Beechworth is also well served with accommodation for all tastes, including two beautiful caravan parks that are pet friendly and allow camping.
