MULGOWIE MUSIC WEEKEND

Next event will be the first weekend in AUGUST 2019, Fri 2 - Sun 4

PREVIOUS:- Facebook page: March 2019 Mulgowie Weekend created by Alison Bell.

See you Friday or Saturday or both! Tell all your friends and encourage those who may have missed this event in their calendar.
The gathering is held at the Mulgowie Hotel in the beautiful Lockyer Valley.
This bi-annual event is organised by acoustic music lovers and hosted by Publicans Kevin and Kylie.

Friday evening will start with a jam in the pub after dinner. Saturday morning there is a farmers market near the community hall and sports ground. Indulge yourself and purchase home-made body cleansing products, food, coffee, new plants for your garden and all manner of wonderful things.

There are NO blackboard concerts, and NO sound gear. It is purely an acoustic music jam weekend. You are free to jam in the pub, on the front verandah of the pub, on the cabin verandahs and under the garden rotundas. All styles of music welcome, though remember this is a 'community event'.

Camping is provided behind the pub and a limited number of cabin rooms/beds are available at each gathering - call, SMS 0437-736-799 or email Michael (editor).

Fee: $10 per head for the whole weekend for all who stay in the Pub grounds. Fees are collected to cover the costs of hiring the cabin facilities (including a kitchen and two bathrooms for use by all – open from Friday lunchtime). Those who secured a bed may be asked to donate a little extra.

STRICTLY NO PUBLIC BYO – please PURCHASE your alcohol from the pub!

Laidley is a small historic country town only 80k west of Brisbane, between Ipswich and Toowoomba on the Cobb & Co Tourist Drive. Mulgowie is 10k south of Laidley. Laidley is only a short drive away with pubs, supermarkets and coffee shops, as well as a newsagent, so if you forget to bring anything, you can get it there.

If you need more information please contact Michael (folkrag ed) at

See you all at Mulgowie!

Tickets have been launched. If you’re keen to come along this year we suggest you get in early to purchase your ticket and save some dollars.
The Planting sets its own pace over the May long weekend at Woodfordia. This three-day festival has emerged as a celebration of the handmade, the homegrown and our natural environment.
We’re imagining you might see yourselves sipping hot chai under dappled light, yarning around the village fires, hearing inquisitive children making their own villages, cooking something tantalising from local ingredients, finding your next creative passion, indulging in some artisan craft beers, recharging your inner eco-warrior through inspiring speakers and escaping with the music and dance of passionate artists.
The Planting full programme will be released on the 31st March.
