Just say goodbye to all your money now.
After revealing a glimpse at the 2020 program late last year, Brunswick Music Festival has lifted the lid on the full lineup at last.
Joining previously announced acts Kevin Morby, Blind Boys of Alabama, Hand Habits and Alex Cameron, comes a mammoth slate of international and local acts set to make Brunswick their playground across March.
Philadelphia DIY punks Sheer Mag lead the stacked program, with their call-to-arms lyrics and zero-fucks attitude bound to be right at home in Brunswick. They’re joined by the triple threat of Sarah Blasko, Holly Throsby and Sally Seltmann – aka Seeker Lover Keeper – and Harmony Byrne, who will perform on a delicious double bill for the festival.
And that’s just the very tip of the iceberg, with Mama Kin Spender, First Chorus, Band of Singers, C. W. Stoneking, Sui Zhen, Xylouris White, imbi, and Cry Club all set to perform across BMF’s two-week stretch.
The diverse lineup will also bring the likes of Dyson Stringer Cloher, Hayley Mary, Elsy Wameyo, Elizabeth, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, The Merindas, Pinch Points, MOD CON, On Diamond, Ajak Kwai, Ziggy Ramo and Diimpa to the stage in what can only be described as a music lover’s Christmas.
Also happening as part of this year’s festival is Brunswick Music Feastival, a special six-course degustation of musical delights featuring Crepes, Eggy, Sunfruits, Baked Beans, Long Lunch and Biscotti.
In addition to the impressive list of musical acts, Brunswick Mechanics Institute will return as the newly refurbished festival hub, Mechanica, with Estonian House also set to welcome artists through its doors across the festival.
Sydney Road Street Party is back this year, too, bringing an afternoon of free tunes to the Brunswick strip across six street stages and five local venue stages on Sunday March 1.
You’d best go ahead and block out half of March in your diary now because you won’t want to miss a moment of this year’s BMF.
Brunswick Music Festival is happening at various venues across Brunswick from Monday March 9 until Sunday March 22. For tickets and more information, head to the festival website.
