Bellingen Winter Music Festival
11 - 14 July
Bello Winter Music 2019 has served up a hot baker’s dozen announcing the first 13 acts headed for the boutique music festival in Bellingen NSW 11 – 14 July, 2019.
Coming direct from Chicago for their first Australian tour, retro queen Tammi Savoy and The Chris Cosello Combo get Bello cooking with classic soul, vintage R&B and killer rockabilly riffs. Add some Afro jazz and deep world music beats from Senegambian Jazz Band, raucous sax-laden disco funk from Vaudeville Smash, Latin, blues and soul infused rock’n’roll from The Montgomery Brothers, punked-out street brass from Horns of Leroy, sassy soul from Melbourne fem-hop act The Mamas, the soulful, beat driven sounds of Sydney’s Alt R’n,B cosmonauts Gold Member and the blistering blues guitar of Lloyd Spiegel, and you have one super tasty Bello line-up guaranteed to get the party started.
Adding to the Bello Winter Music mix are the strikingly beautiful, deep pop sounds of Laura Jean, 60’s psych-soaked rock and roll from Jess Ribeiro, inter-woven synth and guitar from Merpire, killer vocals from folk artist and sometimes ukulele whisperer Leah Flanagan, and the new R&B and electronic influenced sounds of Hein Cooper.
With more than 60 additional acts to be announced in April, this will be one
Bello Winter Music to remember.
Now in its fifth year Bello Winter Music is a family friendly whole-town festival. As well as the music pouring out of 14 different venues, Bellingen comes alive with street theatre, markets, circus performances and a psychedelic Magic Bus (free rides around town).
The festival features Bellingen LeaF, a sustainability focused program of workshops available at no extra cost to festival goers, and the hugely successful Youth Mentorship Program which gives aspiring, young musicians the opportunity to receive mentorship from an established artist from the line-up and to perform at the festival.
Taking place in the magnificent, historic riverside town of Bellingen and selling out each year, Bello WinterMusic has fast become the ‘under-the-radar’ favourite for musicians and punters who like their music up close and intimate.
