The Blenheim Festival is back for it's sixth year in a row, and boy is it going to be a big one! Taking place on the 3rd of April in the Clare Valley, this locally supported, volunteer run, not-for-profit festival attracted 1,300 punters in 2014, and will be offering a record of 1,500 tickets this year.
“Our aim is to present the best local, national and international musicians in the stunning and naturally vibrant surrounds of the Clare Valley. As a charitable entity, our event has the dual focus of raising funds for New Hope Cambodia...and above all, to throw a party that makes you want to come back year after year!” said festival spokesman John Castine.
In its sixth incarnation, Blenheim Fest will be continuing its support to New Hope Cambodia - a grass roots NGO aiming to provide promise, hope and dignity to the people of Cambodia.
All of those involved with Blenheim Festival, including the entire organising committee, volunteers, artists, contractors and supportive patrons, have generously donated over $28,000 to New Hope Cambodia since the first festival in 2010.
“So this year again the good tunes, good times and good vibes will all contribute to a good cause!” John said.
This year's festival begins at 10am, with two live stages in a relaxed vineyard setting. Acts this year include the bona fide music legend Tony Joe White (USA), Z Star (UK), Marlon Williams (NZ), as well as South Australian acts including blues legend Chris Finnen and Timberwolf will also be gracing the stage, along with the Clare Valley’s favourite local man, Carpy, will be back again!
The Green Goat Bar will exclusively be supplying Clare Valley products, including the wine, beer and cider being generously donated by the local vineyards and breweries as their way of supporting Blenheim Festival's charity.
The Trumpet Lane Marketplace will also return. Games and entertainment for the little-ones will also be provided so the adults can sit back and enjoy a glass of vino.
Lastly, a brilliant variety of food stalls will be there to keep everyone fed over the course of the day.
