Kyneton ready to rock again

By Esther Lauaki

Aussie rock icon Adalita will headline this year’s Kyneton Music Festival as a huge line-up of 18 bands takes to the stage over two days.

The singer-songwriter will close out Saturday night of the annual festival, which will run on October 26 and 27 along Piper Street.

Psych-pop outfit Moonlover, ’60s garage-pop group The Pink Tiles, raw rockers A.Swayze and the Ghosts and party band Mighty Duke and The Lords will be the first acts to launch the music festival at the Bluestone Theatre.

St Paul’s Park on Piper Street will host the main stage, with popular music venue Major Tom’s also on board.

Other outfits to perform will include TV Haze, James Ellis and The Jealous Guys, Harmony, Rackett, Pony Face, Sonny and the Sunsets, RVG, The Baudelaires, The Southern River Band, Golden Sounds, Emilee South and Broads.

Last year’s Kyneton Music Festival sold out. The two-day event attracts a combination of regional and metropolitan music lovers to the region.

Festival director Rob Jones co-founded the festival in 2011 after moving to the town and missing the live music scene of Melbourne.

Festival passes are available for $99 for a weekend pass or $75 for a Saturday only pass. Details:
