Josh Teskey opens this years Open Mic Festival!


We have decided to make some changes to the Aireys Inlet Open Mic Festival in 2022. No more mystery guest, we want everyone to get as excited as we are. 


This unique festival’s motto has long been ‘pay what you think it’s worth’. We think it’s worth a lot.

This year the Aireys Pub stage will host a line up of bands like never before. Starting with Josh Teskey live in the beer garden ! There will be limited tickets, and just like previous years we expect the Pub to reach capacity.

So click the link below to secure your spot for this amazing event.


100% of all money from ticket sales go to the artists.

This is a licensed event. 18 or under must be accompanied by an adult.

The Aireys Inlet Open Mic is now in its 15th year. 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. In 2022, it's no mystery! Josh Tesky from the Tesky Brothers is headlining on Friday night. Previous SMG's include 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, Joe Camilleri and Ross Wilson have all appeared in our little coastal town as the Special mystery guest.
