Event description

Description

Bulga Beats is a community festival focused on building connections between people of all ages, backgrounds and walks of life. We want to celebrate the environment around us, understand what it means to be mindful of nature and transparently see the impacts we as humans have on it. Bulga has had a recent history of a never ending battle against the mines that are not only threatening to make the town unliveable but are also destroying Aboriginal heritage and sacred sites, world unique ecological communities and impacting on the water and air of the world not just us.

The Festival is a celebration of community and environment, a gathering of all people to connect on any level. We want to bring back rural community spirit and help form the responsibility and ownership over our communities, natural environments and our impacts we will inevitably have on the world.

The festival has free camping and you are more than welcome to arrive whenever you like and leave whenever you feel. The festival does not commence until Saturday morning but we hold an open gathering on the Friday night with jamming, a few performances and fireside chats. Saturday will hold the main event including markets, food vendors, two stages and an art gallery. It will run until late Sunday afternoon.

The festival is still looking for stall holders and we also have an art gallery space so please email bulgabeats@gmail.com for any application enquiries. Bring your art to the festival to display and sell!
