APPLY NOW TO ENTER THE FRIDAY NIGHT BLUES JAM
The Annual Bruthen Blues & Arts Festival brings an amazing line-up of serious Blues musicians, a family-friendly atmosphere, a colourful market and plenty of kids activities. The Bruthen Blues and Arts festival has something for everyone. The Festival Program kicks off with the Friday night Jam Competition, which is always popular. During the day on Saturday, the shady Main Street Gardens come alive with free music, buskers, market stalls and workshops.The Free Music Stage on the Saturday features great music from local and renowned artists. There are two venues to choose from on the Saturday night: the laid back and family friendly Blues Cafe at the Hall, and the Big Blues Bash party at the Bruthen Inn Hotel. The free music and market continues on Sunday in the Main Street, along with the ever popular Duck Race on the Tambo River. The Festival winds up with the Blues Recovery on Sunday afternoon at the Bruthen Inn Hotel.







20 YEARS OF BRUTHEN BLUES

The Festival Committee has received funding from East Gippsland Shire to help us celebrate 20 years of the Bruthen Blues & Arts Festival. This will enable us to present a special feature at the 20th Anniversary even: an Exhibition of Festival History, Experiences and Memories.  We will be sitting down with past festival organizers to collect everything we can about the festival over the years.

We would love to get our hands on anything from the early years: photos, newspaper articles, flyers, video clips, sound grabs etc. If you have anything to contribute please let us know by emailing judyh@aussiebb.com.au or call 0429 647 685 for more information.

As part of this project we are also asking people to relate their most memorable experiences at the Bruthen festival over the years.  If you’ve ever been to a festival, enjoyed the music, been a volunteer, performer, market stall holder, been involved in a special festival event, we would love to hear from you.


Win a full weekend festival pass to the 20th Annual Festival in February 2015. We are looking for great festival experiences. It might be your most memorable, the best performer, the most fun you had, or because you shared it with special people. There is no word limit. You can include photos if you wish. Enter as many times as you like.
If you wish to remain anonymous, just say so.
A selection of the best “My Bruthen Blues” experiences will be included in the exhibition celebrating 20 years of Blues in Bruthen.
The winner of a full weekend festival pass will be drawn randomly. Entries will be accepted until January 31st.

Submit your “My Bruthen Blues” experience by Facebook message, comment to our Facebook page, email judyh@aussiebb.com.au or write to Bruthen Blues Experience, PO Box 81, Bruthen 3885.
