Standing ovations were the order of the day throughout the weekend for the concerts at the fabulous 7th Bellingen Music Festival. Young musicians filled the streets and parks with their music and song. Local venues hosted wonderful fringe events throughout the weekend. The sounds and words of cultures from the Gumbaynggirr to the Scottish Isles via Africa, India and Europe stimulated the senses.
Festivals like this succeed because of the generosity of the many people who support the event in so many different ways. They are far too numerous to mention here by name but we send a very big thank to you all … the businesses, musicians and individuals who have helped to build the Bellingen Music Festival to the very significant cultural event it now is on Bellingen’s cultural calendar.
