Jasmine Rae to headline Burra Festival
Three-time ARIA nominated and multi-award winning vocalist, songwriter and entertainer, Jasmine Rae will headline the 2018 Burra AGL Country Music Festival.
Held at the Burra Showgrounds, the Festival runs for three days from Friday November 16 until Sunday November 18, and features some of the country’s finest talents. Included in the line-up are: Peter Coad and the Coad Sisters, Runaway Dixie (featuring Jim Hermel), John Turner Jnr, Pete Smith, Tracey Rains and Claypan, Tyler Paterson, Mellissa Pruesker, Tamara Wellman and much more.
The program kicks off with the popular Rock and Roll Friday featuring return favourites, Cornesy’s All Stars headed by media personality, and AFL Hall of Famer Graham Cornes.
A Talent Quest on Saturday morning will give entrants the opportunity to take to the stage and compete for several awards and trophies, including the Nathaniel O’Brien Memorial Award for a special junior talent, worth $500.
Burra is one of two remaining Talent Quests in South Australia, and the only festival who offer the chance to win a scholarship to attend the Academy of Country Music, where they are taught by some of the industry’s best about everything they need to know to pursue a musical career. Burra has been said to be a stepping stone to Tamworth, for young up and coming performers, which we endeavour to continue.
Festival goers will have a great variety of food and drink stalls to choose from and there will be a licensed bar. Please no BYO or glass.
Camping is available on-site (limited powered) and there are also many accommodation options to choose from in the town. For more information visit http://www.visitburra.com
This strong line up of talent is just the right mix to appeal to a wide group of country music enthusiasts, and music lovers in general. Quality live entertainment in the comfort of a relaxed country setting - it doesn’t get much better than that.
Come along for a night, or stay for the whole weekend, you’ll be glad you did.
