The Queenscliff Music Festival has expanded once again, ensuring that its upcoming 2022 edition is set to be one of its biggest to date thanks to the addition of an array of stunning artists.
Having first announced a massive list of artists for its initial lineup back in June, it was clear from the outset the Queenscliff Music Festival was always going to be a big one. With the likes of Baker Boy, Isabella Manfredi, John Butler, Emma Donovan & The Putbacks, RVG, Vika & Linda, and much, much more on the bill, it was a certainty that Queenscliff would become the place to be later this year.
Running from Friday, 25th November until Sunday, 27th November, the lineup aims to provide something for everyone, delivering a number of globally-renowned names alongside smaller, local acts, and ensuring that the entire weekend is one of not just musical bliss, but also discovery.
Now, the festival has expanded once again, welcoming over a dozen amazing artists onto its hallowed lineup. Kicking off with the likes of The Cat Empire frontman Felix Riebl, the second announcement also included beloved names such as Emily Lubitz, Andrew Gurruwiwi Band, Joelistics, and Mia Dyson, who returns from the US.
But it didn’t end there, with The Chaser’s Andrew Hansen, Sweet Talk, Sam Lazaro, and even The Teskey Brothers’ own Sam Teskey complementing the bill. Meanwhile, the lineup also welcomes Woodfordia’s Festival of Small Halls feature Canada’s celtic fusion stars, Inn Echo along with singer songwriter sweetheart, Sam Buckingham.
While Riebl will be performing a number of cuts from his forthcoming album, Everyday Amen, New York-based outfit Daddy Long Legs will also ramp up the excitement, with Rolling Stone having described them as “like Chicago blues fired at the moon, played by the demented children of the Pretty Things”.
Together, they unite to provide a musical lineup that shines a light on a myriad genres, focusing on soul, folk, hip-hop, and iconic blues, with beloved trio The Beanies also appearing to ensure that the little ones are taken care of as they provide their ARIA Award-nominated family friendly entertainment.
Having been running for over two decades, the 2022 edition of the Queenscliff Music Festival serves as the 24th time the beloved festival has taken over the Bellarine Peninsula in southern Victoria.
Attracting more than 10,000 music lovers of all ages annually, the festival has managed to curate a reputation as a scenic musical getaway for everyone, aided along by its family-friendly atmosphere, its welcoming vibes, and its ever-impressive list of artists on the bill.
Alongside its already-stacked lineup, the Queenscliff Music Festival aims to serve as a weekend-long celebration of live music, family-friendly activities, craft beers and spirits, fine wines, locally sourced gourmet produce and more.
However, the Queenscliff Music Festival organisers are also well aware of their environmental footprint as an event that sees thousands of people come through each year, and are immensely proud of the 95% of waste they were able to divert from landfill in 2019. Such was the impact of their efforts that the festival was a recipient of a Premiers Sustainability Award for their 2019 efforts.
