Bello Winter Music (Did You Think The Slang Term ‘Yo’ Was Dead?)
Want to get out of the city?
We all feel that way sometimes. The loudness, the confusion, the inconsiderate people pumping terrible music without shame and the general air of drudgery can get you down.
But then, in a perverse way, when we do venture out of the city and into the quiet country we somehow miss the chaos.
Well, do we have the solution for you. The Bello Winter Music Festival!
It’s a family friendly whole-town festival!
As well as the music pouring out of 14 different venues, Bellingen comes alive with street theatre, markets, circus performances and a psychedelic Magic Bus (free rides around town).
Acts to grace the halls, pubs and marketplaces include Auckland-born, Dunedin-raised, Nadia Reid who has attained global success off the back of her first two albums; the ever popular and always brassy Bullhorn; magnetic five-piece, Pony Face and the amazing Emily Wurramara, a young Indigenous artist who is taking the Australian music world by storm. Joining them will be Blues legends, Hat Fitz & Cara; Australia’s top Zydeco band, Psycho Zydeco; unique one man band, Juzzie Smith, the always stunning, The Maes (formerly The Mae Trio) and many more!
It’s as loud, confusing and filled with inconsiderate bastards as the city, but there’s all the country-themed lack of reliable public transport and increased presence of lethal fauna that you’ve been sorely missing in your everyday life.
