It’s Fairbridge Festival’s 25th anniversary this year and we can’t wait to celebrate the milestone achievement of the festival’s long-standing contribution to the Western Australian cultural landscape when it hits Fairbridge Village, on the South Western Highway, Pinjarra this weekend from April 21-24.
Picture a a heritage-listed, self-contained village nestled amongst the trees and surrounded by fields, in the foothills of the Darling escarpment, alive with the vibrant colours, sounds, smells and energy of your favourite weekend market. Add in an incredible program of music from various venues dotted around the site for four massive days and you’ve got one heck of a festival.
Highlights in 2017 include (but are certainly not limited to!) recent multiple winner at the recent BBC Folk Awards Daoiri Farrell, as well as fellow nominee Jarlath Henderson; Fairbridge favourite Kristina Olsen heads over from San Francisco; Danish outfit Himmerland, who mix originals and traditional Danish songs in new arrangements; Melbourne 10-piece soul-funk outfit Sex on Toast; stunning US chamberfolk trio Harpeth Rising; rising stars of the Quebec’s youth folk scene Les Poules a Colin (pictured above); and Q Music award winner for Best Indigenous Song Emily Wurramara.
Plus there’s a host of WA’s finest including Bernard Carney, Andrew Winton, Odette Mercy & Her Soul Atomics, Soukouss Internationale, POW! Negro, The Little Lord Street Band, Salary, Axel Carrington, Beni Bjah, Los Porcheros and heaps more.
