2014 General Information
Sydney Blues & Roots Festival 2014
6th Sydney Blues & Roots Festival 2014
With the decision to move the festival to Hollands Paddock proving a great success,
festival promoters Peter Fricker and Gary Mannix are pleased to announce that the
6th annual Sydney Blues & Roots Festival will once again be held in
Hollands Paddock, Windsor from
Friday 24th October to Sunday 26th October 2014.
Our thanks to our patrons, particulary those affected by the local fires for their attendance. Numbers were slightly down as a result but our thoughts go out to the many people affected and our thanks to the fire brigade and the many volunteers for their efforts in bringing the fires under control.
Our thanks also go out to our festival team for their enormous amount of work that brought to you a festival we believe to be the best Sydney Blues & Roots Festival to date. Our special thanks to Geoff and Steve from Code One for the great program, Deb Morris from Auzzie Biz for website, ticketing and server admin, our graphic designer Donna Rawlins, publicist Jo Corbett, our volunteers, the local scouts and our many sponsors.
Join us Saturday 21st December for a 4 hour cruise on the Hawkesbury Paddlewheeler featuring Dom Turner and Joe Glover. Click HERE for further details.
Stand by for some exciting announcements early in the new year.
