The 7th annual Aireys Inlet Open Mic Music Festival is poised for another successful year. The festival presents over 160 performances of all types of music. From full rock bands to solo acoustic acts on nine stages over three days.
Annual attendance is estimated at over 5000 people, and each year we have a Special Mystery Guest close the festival. Colin Hay, Dan Sultan, Tim Rogers and Mark Seymour have been our SMGs for the past four festivals.
It is a positive festival where music lovers gather on the coast to appreciate talented musicians and their music. Our festival provides artists from Aireys Inlet, The Surf Coast and all over Australia with invaluable exposure and performance experience. Critically, it connects and grows the young people of our community.

After 6 years of success, the festival can be considered a major annual event. We will still maintain the free entry and rely on sponsors to do so. There are numerous sponsorship opportunities available. If you would like to become a sponsor and align your organisation with our community, send an email to Marty Maher or call 5220 0000.
