Lovers of live music can expect everything from Blues to Roots, World to Jazz, Metal & Rock, Country, Classical and more, featuring players from around the country showcasing the magic of strings, be it electric or acoustic, bass or mandolin, banjo or ukulele and beyond. First announcements include blues legend Ash Grunwald with his band, Grammy Award winner Lucky Oceans & world fusion phenomenon Kate Pass Kohesia Ensemble, 2018 nominees for WAM best bassist & jazz act.

But what sets this state-first event apart is the opportunity it will provide to immerse visitors in the world of strings via workshops, keynote presentations, masterclasses, panel discussions, listening sessions, demos and Q&A’s with artists & luthiers.

The Main Exhibition, set at the Festival Hub - the appropriately named new culture & entertainment venue Margaret River HEART (Hub of Entertainment, Arts & Regional Touring) – will host guitar makers from around the country (including Australia’s largest producer of electric guitars, Ormsby), plus retailers, gear manufacturers & distributors. Additional exhibitions exploring the many faces and impacts of guitars will be on show at other venues throughout the town and wider region for festival-goers to enjoy.
