The Grogans, Kutcha Edwards, Charlie Needs Braces and more will take to the stage over the Easter weekend.
Far East Music Festival has dropped a massive local lineup for their inaugural 2023 event.
Funded by the Australian Government, along with support from a number of project partners and collaborators, this year's event features the likes of The Grogans, Kee'ahn, Kutcha Edwards, Charlie Needs Braces, Blue Moon Marquee (Canada) and more.
Alongside touring artists and local and regional acts, the festival will also feature an array of activities and workshops to inspire participation and connection — including the return of the legendary percussion street parade, a retro teams boardriders comp, nature-based activities, creative workshops, dedicated wellbeing space, food vans and more.
Held in the small and remote coastal township of Mallacoota, Victoria, over the Easter weekend, the fledgling festival, born out of the ashes of a black summer, brings forth the green shoots of recovery and calls out to the healing spirit within us all, allowing punters to be able to bask in the unique wilderness while supporting the town's recovery since the bushfires.
Project partner and Songlines Music Aboriginal Corporation Co-CEO Robbie Bundle says:

“The entire human family needs nurturing, and music is the channel for that. We are living through challenging times, particularly for young people. Their voices need to be heard. They need to be seen and recognised.
The beauty of the natural environment in Far East Gippsland has always been personified by the people who reside there, and how they protect the Country they live in – expressed so eloquently over many years through music, art and culture.”
