The Marysville Music Weekend Announces Headliners
The township of Marysville in Victoria’s picturesque Yarra Valley is a place with a long and rich background, and part of the recent history of Marysville is that for the last 5 years it’s been home to the Marysville Jazz and Blues Weekend. The festival has become an incredibly popular event with locals, Melbourne day trippers and Interstate guests alike. This year Marysville is delighted to announce that the festival will now be known as the Marysville Music Weekend.
The first artist announce includes headline artists Pierce Brothers and Guitar Showdownfeaturing legendary guitarists, Geoff Achison and Jimi Hocking together onstage. Many more will be announced over the next few months as venues around town fill up three days of incredible performances.
Presented by Lions of Marysville and District Inc – Marysville Music Weekend will feature the jazz and Blues that regulars have come to love, as well as so much more: contemporary folk, roots, country, and everything in between when it touches down October 16 to 18 this year.
Says festival director Bill Bate of the rebrand,
“We’re excited for a new direction in the new decade for our beloved music weekend. The new name boasts a more diverse offering of music and events. Rest assured there will still be our exciting list of artists, in the same great venues, all set in the beautiful surrounds of Marysville. We can’t wait to see you here for the Marysville Music Weekend!”
