Festival Director Jeremy Furze says that despite the "volatile" time for festivals, "there’s an appetite for live music in more digestible servings and price points."

One of Victoria’s most beloved music events, Town Folk Festival, has dropped its impressive line-up for 2024 – and it’s one you won’t want to miss.

The single-day event in Castlemaine will be held on Saturday, 16 November. This year’s bill is packed with local and international talent, including The Teskey Brothers with their only Victorian show of the year, Ngaiire, Yirinda, Jess Ribiero, Grace Cummings, Marlon Williams (NZ), A. Savage (US), the side project of Parquet Courts frontman Andrew Savage, and more. You can check out the complete line-up below.

Town Folk Festival is described as a community-friendly event that takes over the Victorian town, with acts performing at The Sunken Oval and in local venues The Bridge Hotel and Shedshaker Brewery.

Tickets to the 2024 event go on sale at 9 am on Thursday, 11 July, via the Town Folk Festival website.

Festival Director Jeremy Furze said of the event’s expanded third edition, “Town Folk is growing up. After three iterations in ‘cute neighbourhood gathering’ mode, the time felt right to kick off the training wheels and step this thing up to ‘big fat festival’ mode.

“The multi-stage, multi-venue format will remain – again utilising all the wonderful spaces along Walker Street – but this year, we will drop a stage on the Sunken Oval across the road and push the faders up a few notches.”

Furze continued, “We (my brother Pat and I) created Town Folk with songwriters and audience listening at the forefront. As far as festivals go it’s fairly tame, but that suits us and our audience just fine.

“It’s a volatile time for music festivals, but we believe that more than ever, there’s an appetite for live music in more digestible servings and price points. Town Folk won’t break the bank or the lower back. It’s on the Bendigo line. It’s in the centre of Castlemaine. It’s an easy-going time for all ages and positions on the spectrum. It’s one day of exceptional fun and then home to bed, Airbnb, motel or campground.”
