November marks the start of the Australian music festival season, synonymous with eager crowds, cold beer, amazing bands and walls of amplified sound. Canberra’s inaugural Allstars Acoustic Festival is unique, it has all these ingredients except the last – it uses no amps. In a Canberra first, this festival takes festival staples of booze, food, good mates and a long, long list bands all in an acoustic setting within the cosy surrounds of DNA Studio at Gorman House in Civic on Saturday November 8th.
- — The O’Hooligans
— Mr Fibby
— The Wedded Bliss
— The Cashews
— Dr Stovepipe
— The Ellis Collective
PLUS – The only festival ever to feature DJing on a fully functioning ‘Rexonoloa’ gramaphone – no electrics in this baby, she’s also totally acoustic.
This completely acoustic show is proudly affiliated with the Canberra Musicians Club and will kick off with an opportunity to catch up with mates over a BBQ and cold beer from 6:00 as the daylight savings softly wane. Music will start at 7:00 sharp – unfortunately the fashionably late will miss out. Badly.
As this show is acoustic ticket numbers are strictly limited and prepurchase is recommended before the night to avoid disappointment. Tickets are $20 Full and $15 for Members & Concession. Tickets are available the old fashioned way through Landspeed Records or online using paypal through The Canberra Musicians Club:
