Featuring international festival favourites and set in the ‘Guts of the Gascoyne’ the 2019 Gascoyne River Music Festival boasts a jam packed program guaranteed to enliven one’s spirit and get everyone dancing  - Upper Gascoyne Style! 

 

Set south of the Kennedy Range National Park  the Community of Gascoyne Junction is proud to present a vibrant Festival of Arts, Culture and of course Music: ALL FREE, ALL FUN and ALL Family Friendly! 

 

In 2019 The Gascoyne River Music Festival will be a one event wonder featuring enriching experiences, live entertainment & high arts in situ… the full three day program will be back bigger and better in 2020...

 

In 2019 we present 'Heartland Cartography'  

 

Heartland Cartography features percussion & a community choir which will provide a soundscape to accompany the building off of a fire sculpture. The performance is outdoors, in the round and starts with an epic sunset and a perfect Gascoyne winters day. Once built, you are  invited to leave notes, paper things that reflect your personal heartland maps of emotion on the fire sculpture. The tower then becomes an exclusion zone, is lit, aflame of release, of transformation & renewal. Then get ready to dance to the musical legends which are 'Children of the Tide', aerial antics of rising star Ms Milsy and much more!
