A free festival is a good festival.
Banyule City Council’s flagship annual free music festival Twilight Sounds (not to be confused with Zoo Twilights) is back, and the lineup is looking tasty.
Promising something for everyone, this year’s lineup ranges from afro-beat to country.
The 17-piece Public Opinion Afro Orchestra will bring the rhythm to Sills Bend Park for the festival, combining the afro-beat of Nigeria and West Africa with elements of jazz and hip hop. Their larger-than-life sound, explosive live energy and infectious beats are bound to have punters dancing when they hit the stage.
They’ll be joined by Tracy McNeil and The Goodlife’s homely country music, drawing from Americana, alt-rock and pop to create a warm and distinctive sound.
Rounding out this year’s bill come The Voices Supergroup, set to belt out a selection of Aussie hits. Comprising the likes of Jason Singh, Mark Gable and Grace Knight, this lot will unleash the power of their pipes across four decades of chart-topping favourites when they hit Twilight Sounds.
There will also be a range of food trucks onsite to ensure that bellies are full and happy. Bring your own chair or picnic rug, grab some grub and settle in for an evening of live tunes.
It all goes down on Saturday March 14 in Sills Bend Park from 5:30pm. Entry is free, find all the details here.
