After arriving with a bang in February this year, the Mornington Peninsula Blues Festival returns to Mornington Racecourse on Saturday, February 8. Once again it will feature nine world-class blues artists in a celebration of blues music, Peninsula food and wine and various craft markets. The event this year will be adjusted to be a family-friendly affair, which will see children 12 and under admitted free.
Festival organiser and Mount Martha resident Patrick Elliget is expecting a bumper crowd next year and has been very encouraged by the early ticket sales, which is not surprising given the class of the line-up of leading Australian blues artists, including musicians from Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and the Peninsula. This will be a Peninsula summer event you won’t want to miss. More information and tickets are available at www.mornpenbluesfest.com
The event bus company Melbourne on the Move will again be providing return buses to the festival from Sorrento and the Melbourne CBD with designated stops en route.
