Musos Jam Cafe At Kingston Harvest

This year’s Kingston Harvest Festival is set to feature an array of musical talent in their entertainment lineup, including McAlister Kemp, The Go Set, Robert James Kirk, Rory Ellis, Mustered Courage and more. In addition, though, the festival will also feature an up-close acoustic stage – The Jam Café – aiming to provide an additional relaxed performance area where the audience and performers can intermingle.

It’s a chance for the punters to meet some of the established performers, but also for up and coming acts to perform a 25-30min set and showcase their sound to the public and organisers, always keen to scope new talent for upcoming Kingston City Council festivals and events. This unique platform with offer little to no backline and a small PA system, making it a raw glimpse at some great local and upcoming talent. Performers will receive a small fee for their performance, with all members of each group also receiving a complimentary meal voucher to enjoy some of the great food at the event.

The new format for all Kingston City Council’s festivals has worked really well at last year’s Harvest, the recent Mordialloc Food, Wine & Music Festival and early 2014’s Globe To Globe Festival, with the Outer Space Stage. If you’re interested in performing, send an email to Petti McInnes (Festival Offer) on by Tuesday April 8. All artists are welcome, with confirmation of acceptance to be forwarded to successful applicants.

Kingston Harvest Festival takes place at Roy Dore Reserve on Saturday May 10. For all the info, phone 9581 4917 or visit
