WHY WINDSOR?

THE LARGE NUMBER of music festivals around Australia in recent years has been impressive. Interestingly, though, all the blues festivals in NSW are held in country and coastal areas – Byron Bay, Goulburn, Thredbo and Wagga Wagga.

Windsor is an ideal location for a Blues & Roots Festival because of its accessibility, history, dining and performance venues. The area’s unique village-like atmosphere and relaxed ambience make it an ideal tourist destination.

“What will be pumping relentlessly out of a tight network of stages over four days will be some of the best blues on offer in this country known for its fervour, passion and imagination when it comes to the music that steals your soul,”
GLENN A BAKER

The Sydney Blues & Roots Festival has, in a short three years, established itself as a serious music festival rivalling any other in NSW.

FESTIVAL AMBIANCE

AUSTRALIAN BLUES MUSIC LOVERS tend to be in the 25+ age group. The Blues and Roots genres attract punters from all over Australia. Based on attendances at the 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 festivals, it is expected that between 5,000 and 6,000 weekend patrons will attend the festival, with at least 20% visiting from interstate.

The Festival boasts a program showcasing a variety of indoor and outdoor venues that range from outdoor marquee stages to cruising the majestic Hawkesbury River on the Hawkesbury Paddlewheeler – sipping a cooling drink and listening to one of Australia’s premier blues bands – has become a huge favourite with Festival patrons.

Local businesses can cultivate enhanced trading opportunities during the festival and are encouraged to become involved. Helping to create the family carnival atmosphere are a mixture of market stalls, buskers, school bands, dance groups and even kids’ entertainment.
