Crazy New Festival

A festival in an old lunatic asylum… now that just sounds crazy. The first ever Beechworth Music Festival will take place on Saturday, May 10 in a decommissioned lunatic asylum.

Featuring some amazing local talent, acts will include The Bennies, DD Dumbo, Teeth & Tongue, to name a few.The festival is to be held at what was previously the Mayday Hills Lunatic Asylum in Victoria. During its operation Mayday Hills Lunatic Asylum developed a reputation as one of the most scary, dark and morbid facilities of its kind, however was closed in 1995 after running for 128 years.

But don’t let this deter you. Organisers are promising, “a day and night of music, good safe times, free camping and a complete sensory overload!”

The event has a heavy focus on sustainability; the involvement of local artists, businesses and services; responsible alcohol consumption and the complete immersion of festivalgoers in the artists and their music.

As well as a great night of entertainment, 5% of all profits will be donated to a chosen local cause or charity each year. Camping is free and tickets start at $65 for the first 1000 and can be purchased at the gate for $80 – unless sold out. www.beechworthmusicfestival.com
