Four Winds Easter Festival Goes Annual

Four Winds Easter Festival Goes Annual

Just weeks away from the opening of the Four Winds 2018 Easter Festival, the Four Winds Executive Committee has announced that their acclaimed flagship event will become an annual fixture on the organisation's program, with plans already well underway for next year.

A firm favourite with music-makers from all corners of the planet, the Four Winds Easter Festival is renowned for its unique setting, with the majority of performances taking place on a purpose-built open-air sound stage, surrounded by 30 acres of exquisite open bushland.

It's an experience which is worlds apart from a typical concert hall performance: a profound encounter with music and nature for both artists and audiences; and the basis for the guiding philosophy which has seen the event go from strength to strength.

Speaking on behalf of the organisation, Artistic Director James Crabb says, "Over the past 27 years, the Four Winds Easter Festival has grown from a small gathering of friends enjoying an afternoon of quality music-making in a stunningly beautiful location, to a highly anticipated event drawing an audience of thousands, offering five days of exceptional performances and programs presented by over sixty Australian and International Artists."

"Four Winds is committed to building its contribution to the Australian and international music-making ecology, so making the Festival an annual event was in many ways a natural development.

"Over recent years we have laid the foundations for a vibrant year-round program incorporating music education, community-based projects, commissioning, performances and artist residencies, all inspired by our exceptional location in nature. The Easter Festival provides the perfect opportunity to showcase our work to a wider national audience and share the best of evolving music-making practice."

Preparations for the Four Winds 2018 Easter Festival, Crabb's first in the role of Artistic Director, are now in full swing, with the first events taking place in the lead up to Easter weekend, from Wednesday March 28.
