Seventeenth Blue Mountains Music Festival
Blue Mountains Music Festival has a program packed with individual artists who have achieved musical acclaim by building up long-standing reputations on budding unique sounds, including the remarkable voice of Judy Collins - I wonder what she’ll be eating for lunch? Great bands to look out for in 2012 include the audibly edible My Friend the Chocolate Cake, sonically drinkable Daniel Champagne, and dark coffee soul rockers Truckstop Honeymoon.
With upper mountain mist in the horizon and the sweet crescendo and decrescendo of voices, guitars, maybe even fiddles and pipes, and defnitely percussion, Blue Mountains Music Festival is a community market for music fans and a huge tourist attraction. Being that this carnivalesque event borders on World Heritage listed wilderness, you couldn’t pick a better place to enjoy this impressive lineup of musicians.
