Fresh off the back of a successful 2017, the Peninsula’s ‘best-kept secret festival’ races into its sixth year of showcasing the best blues and roots in the country and farther afield. Organisers Minx and Rob Ramsay have some surprises for patrons at The Briars in Mount Martha this year.

“This year’s Blues At The Briars demands attendance,” says Rob. “Showcasing three international acts and the best local and interstate artists, the quality of the line-up cannot be ignored. A massive upgrade in state-of-the-art sound and stage will do justice to the likes of AJ Ghent (US) Z Star Delta (UK) Ben Waters (UK) and amazing Australian acts.

“We have completely revamped the children’s activities with free facepainting, arts and crafts, sand art, bouncy castle and much more. The little blues lovers will be entertained all day in a safe and secure environment so bring the whole family. Children under 14 are free to attend.”

With a bar stocking Peninsula craft beer, wine and mixed spirits at very reasonable prices, patrons can enjoy the day in comfort, while the VIP area provides the option of food and beverage packages and an exclusive secure area with a view of the stage in the comfort of your own marquee. Once again this is proving very popular with patrons and will sell out.

So grab your tickets, folks. This will prove to be an experience that will linger with you for a long time after the final act. Bring a picnic rug and relax for the day and into the night at Blues At The Briars on February 24, all set in the amazing surrounds of The Briars Homestead in Mount Martha. Gates open at 11am with live music until 11pm.

This event is not to be missed!
