A brand new festival dedicated entirely to funk and soul is coming to Victoria

Alice Skye

Groove is in the heart of Victoria’s mountain range.

The first-ever Funkfest is arriving soon to fulfil all your funk and soul desires. Taking place in Victoria’s Alpine Valleys this February, the three-day event prides itself on being the only Aussie music festival dedicated exclusively to these two genres.

Heading to the inaugural Funkfest in 2020 are singer-songwriter Alice Skye, R&B star Thando, Melbourne groove outfit The Seven Ups, The Public Opinion Afro Orchestra and plenty more funky fresh acts.

If you’re looking to splash a little extra cash, the festival’s VIP package will land you luxurious bell tent accommodation, a private shuttle bus between the campgrounds and the festival, and exclusive access to parties, breakfasts and private amenities.
