ABOUT AIREYS INLET OPEN MIC FESTIVAL
The Aireys Inlet Open Mic is now in its 14th year. Starting on the Friday evening at the Aireys pub and running through until late Sunday afternoon the whole town comes alive. 9 stages 3 days and over 150 acts. There really is something for everyone.
The festival provides a fantastic opportunity for up and coming musicians as well as established acts to perform to large crowds with professional sound equipment and stage crew. Since the festival was created it has inspired the formation of over 40 local bands.
Each year we have a Special Mystery Guest to close the festival. Colin Hay, Dan Sultan, Tim Rogers, Mark Seymour, The Hoodoo Gurus, Rockwiz Orkestra with Ella Hooper and Vika and Linda Bull, Tash Sultana, the Pierce Brothers and Ross Wilson have all appeared in our little coastal town as the Special mystery guest.
*Our festival is unique in many respects, in particular entry to the festival is free. We provide donation buckets and people pay what they think it is worth*
