It always feels good hitting that imaginary marker on the Hwy where the traffic is at your back and the music lies ahead of you. Where the working week is leaving your tired body and the intrigue of what lies ahead starts to tingle your bones a little. Kyneton Music Festival welcomes you in beautiful aged surrounds that rejuvenate rather than exhaust. The Mechanics Institute is the Center point of the Festival providing stages both inside and out creating an easy shift between lazying under the shade of giant Oak Trees and dancing under heritage decor. Artists such as The Darling Downs, Charles Jenkins & The Zhivagos, Tracy McNeil & The Good Life, Little Bastard, Cherrywood, Three Kings and Immigrant Union were just some keeping crowds entertained.
You could be forgiven for not realising a Festival was on when wandering around Kyneton, such was the quiet pace. Then you stumble across places like Red Brick Hall where the captivating sounds of Artists such as Archer and Liz Stringer radiate through the heat swelling walls. As the last chords rang out from Liz Stringer it was time to toast glasses to the end of another Australian eve and a weekend of enjoying a fantastic array of local music.
