Bello Winter Music has announced yet another phenomenal line-up for 2019 ensuring that their fifth annual festival will go off with a big Bello bang! With more than 70 artists set to descend on the small NSW town of Bellingen during the July school holidays (11th-14th) it looks as if this year’s event will be bigger and better than ever.
Acts to grace the halls, pubs and market places of the tiny riverside town include NZs 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 and Cara; Australia’s top Zydeco band, Psycho Zydeco; unique one man band, Juzzie Smith and the always stunning, The Maes (formerly The Mae Trio).
Bello Winter Music is a boutique family friendly festival that takes place within existing venues in the town during one of the cosiest months of the year. The event has proved popular ever since its inception due to its relaxed intimate vibe, diversity of line-up, environmental edge and unexpected quirks including one-off performances that encourage surprise collaboration between artists. The event has sold out each year, reinforcing the backing it has received from patrons and performers alike.
When asked who is a must see at this year’s festival, event programmer Kate Atkinson commented, “When quizzed on who I recommend you go see at Bello I say - everyone. This is festival of discovery. So give every act a chance, especially the ones you have never heard of and you may discover your favourite new band.”
