Four Winds 2018 Easter Festival Program Announced

Internationally acclaimed Sydney based musician, James Crabb, has this afternoon revealed the highlights of his inaugural program as the recently appointed Artistic Director of Australia’s iconic Four Winds Easter Festival.

This renowned celebration of music and music making is Four Winds most ambitious festival to date: bringing together more than 60 carefully selected artists and 10 ensembles for 26 performances at 10 stunning locations across five days, Wednesday 28 March to Sunday 1 April 2018.

James Crabb’s program will take Festival goers on a global musical journey, from early music to the current day and will feature the world premiere of a new work by South Coast based composer and leader of Bega’s Stonewave Taiko, David Hewitt.

The Festival will be introduced by ABC Classic FM’s Guy Noble who will welcome a stunning line-up of musicians including celebrated British violinist Jack Liebeck and Israeli flautist Ariel Zuckermann (Music Director of the Israel Chamber Orchestra). They will take to the stage alongside some of Australia’s finest solo artists and such highly regarded ensembles as the Goldner String Quartet, The Song Company, Speak Percussion and the Australian Brass Quintet. The Djaadjawan Dancers will perform during the Festival which is also presenting Jessie Lloyd’s Mission Songs Project prior to its national tour in 2018.

The program centres on two full days of music in Four Winds out-door Sound Shell over the 2018 Easter weekend. These performances will be complemented by a series of concerts in the Windsong Pavilion, which undoubtedly has one of the finest acoustics in Australia.

The Festival will start with a free concert for the community on Friday 30 March following a day of free pop-up performances in and around Bermagui. For aspiring young creatives, there is a Youth Program over the two days of the Easter Weekend at the Four Winds site, including a creative kid’s tent.

“It’s the incredible natural environment where Four Winds takes place, which makes it such a unique event,” says Artistic Director James Crabb. “It makes everyone feel like they’re sharing in something intimate, to be treasured.”

Set in a unique environment at Barragga Bay just 9kms south of Bermagui, the Four Winds Festival is an experience like no other. It brings world-class musicians, performers and audiences together in purpose built state-of-the-art facilities in an exceptional bush-land location.

Surround yourself with music, brilliance and beauty over the Easter weekend, Wednesday 28 March 2018 to Sunday 1 April 2018. Early bird tickets available until Sunday 3 December 2017. Tickets and information available at or by calling 02 6493 3414.
