If you haven’t bought your early bird Wingham Akoostik Music Festival tickets yet now is the time to do it, as Wingham’s favourite musical weekend is only days away.

The festival kicks off at Wingham Showground on Friday October 13 at 5.30pm with local choir Wingsong the opening act. Local indigenous dance group Waang-djarii will perform Welcome to Country on Friday night and they will also take a spot on the stage on Saturday night.

Headliners for this year’s festival are Akoostik regular Bill Chamber’s daughter Kasey Chambers, ARIA Hall of Fame inductee Russell Morris (of ‘The Real Thing’ fame), and the Eurogliders. 

Sunday sees Dom Turner return to the Akoostik stage for the third time. For the past two years Dom has performed as one half of the Backsliders duo, with drummer Rob Hirst. With Rob otherwise occupied this year, Dom has formed the Turner Brown Band – a collaboration with US vocalist and lap-guitar player Nikki D Brown.
