Moruya’s Granite Town music festival announces 2018 line-up

Moruya might just be home to the best-kept secret on the Australian music festival circuit – Granite Town!

Now in its fifth year, Granite Town is a community run, not for profit festival, and an evolution of the long-running Moruya Jazz Festival. ‘Moruya’s Funky Little Festival’ has just announced this year’s line-up and it doesn’t get much funkier than this:

  • The Bamboos

  • Caiti Baker

  • Gang Of Brothers

  • The Strides

  • Thunder Fox

  • The Swamp Stompers

  • Signature Series

  • The Big Ilch

All the big names join a top selection of local talent for one huge day on Saturday, October 6. The Granite Town stage has seen some of Australia’s most exciting acts perform, from The Waifs, Tash Sultana, Kim Churchill to Jeff Lang, Ash Grunwald, Katie Noonan and many more.“We have only been able to put on such great shows because the festival is organised by a team who just really love their music,” festival president Darelle Carmody says. “The community really gets behind us too, it’s amazing how generous people are with their time to make it all happen. The result is a festival that is a celebration of music’s ability to bring people together.” The festival site at Moruya Racecourse is just behind the beach and surrounded by bushland, but there is no suggestion of roughing it, with a state of the art PA system, gourmet food trucks, craft beer at the bar and even a record fair! Granite Town wants everyone to have a good time, young and old, with children under 12 admitted free and a range of children’s activities on offer.The community of Moruya is inviting you to get down to Granite Town, because like James Brown said, “We’re gonna have a funky good time.”For tickets and all the info head to
