THE Wollombi Music Festival will move to a slightly bigger venue “down near the millpond” this September to cater for the growing appeal of the boutique show piece.

The past three editions of the eclectic festival, which straddles rock, folk, blues and roots, have sold out.

Sydney indie-roots two-piece Lime Cordiale and Darwin soul diva Caiti Baker will headline the eighth Wollombi Festival. Dubarray, The Ruiins, Ivy, Cornstalk, The Kava Kings, Night Kite, Emily Wurramara, Tay Oskee, The Hillbilly Kings, Declan Kelly & The Rising Sun round out the bill.

The Wollombi Music Festival is on September 30 and tickets are on sale.

DIVERSITY

A CELEBRATION  of Newcastle’s diverse cultures will be held on July 1. The family friendly event will be held in Gregson Park, Hamilton, from 11am.  The day will include over 20 cultural performances, international food and lots of free family and children's activities to mark the beginning of National Refugee Week. 

MUSTER UP

THE Hunter’s Hurricane Fall and The Adam Eckersley Band are heading west on September 29 and 30 for the annual Deni Ute Muster. The festival showcases some of the best country music in Australia and attracts 18,000 people to the Riverina town of Deniliquin. 

The Adam Eckersley Band will kick-off night two with their distinct brand of southern rock.

STAGING POST

THE STAGING POST is a documentary which follows Muzafar and Khadim, two Afghan Hazara refugees who were stuck in Indonesia after Australia 'stopped the boats'. Facing many years in limbo, they built a community, started a school, changed UN refugee policy and inspired a refugee education.

Director Jolyon Hoff and star of the film Muzafar Ali will host a QandA after the screening.

It will screened on July 2 at 4pm The Royal Exchange.
