REVEALED: Spring in the Vale Music Festival line-up drops

A Central Queensland music festival will return in August and promised to be another mesmerising display of international and Australian talent.

Spring in the Vale was a Music Festival with a difference, held on a picturesque grazing property near the town of Agnes Water/1770.

The festival will bring in talent from Queensland abroad, as well as showcasing gifted local acts,

It will be an all-ages BYO and camping festival held at Kenmay family farm in Miriam Vale.

Spring in the Vale 2021, will be held on August 28 (with overnight camping) and will showcase National and International quality musical acts.

There will also be workshops and exhibitions from other artists, and stalls from local businesses, including a ukulele workshop, jewellery and painting exhibitions and food stalls.

In 2019, the festival brought over 100 attendees from outside the region, which helped to promote the area and its businesses, and this year it was hoped there would be a bigger turnout than ever.

In a regional town and as an all-ages event, Spring in the Vale is a rare occasion for people who wouldn’t often be able to see quality live music, to get out and do so.

Tickets for this boutique festival are extremely affordable, but also limited.

Get in quick to purchase pre-sale day tickets here for only $35 ($45 to purchase on the day) and here for camping.
