Illawara folk festival 2015

Festival of truth,

Festival of love,

 

With music for the soul,

We all rise above,

 

Beyond the dirt and mirth,

The extension of our girth,

 

Is a ‘being’ waiting to be born.

 

Beyond a critics scorn,

Our passion is forlorn,

Within the realm of “creativity”,

 

So let the energy of dance flow,

And with the night stars they glow,

Eating food for all cultures,

No longer are we a vulture,

But rather “creators” of the best,

Forgetting all the rest,

 

By simply enjoying the energy of FUN.

 

18-1-15

Today we were entertained and enthralled by the Illawara’s premier music festival that was oozing with local and international talent. There was dance, food, world music, folk, rock, blues, open mic, story telling, funk, and much, much more.

We had heard good things about this festival and awaited it’s arrival, but upon spending 8 hours in this magical setting, located at the Bulli showgrounds, with camping on the race tracks, we were both blown away with how the afternoon, and evening panned out.

There were many highlight amongst the multiple acts, performed on multiple stages, that were viewed by us today. The line up of what we saw or partook in included; Debasis Chakroborty and the Kriti, Kristina Olsen, Micahel Fix, Michael-John Azzopardi, the Scottish Ceilidh with the fiddle club, Guerilla Zingari, Afenginn, Sea Shanties, Swing Booty, and Big Erle.
