Main FM festival revives live music in Castelmaine

After the lifting of months of lockdowns in Victoria, Main FM is celebrating the revival of live music in 2022 with an all-ages music festival coming to Castlemaine, on Djarra Country, in Autumn.

The festival, under a new moon in the open air of Lot 19, will feature an incredible lineup of local musicians as well as some from further afield including:

Cookin’ on 3 Burners – Sugar Fed Leopards – Jess Ribeiro – The Merindas – K5 – Jen Moore + MainFM DJs

94.9 MainF M is an award-winning progressive community radio station based in Castlemaine broadcasting music, community news, talks and specialist programs and events throughout a large area of Central Victoria, with over 100 volunteer presenters broadcasting 70+ shows across the program grid.

REVIVAL is the station’s primary fundraising event, with all proceeds going towards keeping the station on the airwaves.

Dispersed between a solid line-up of diverse talent, Main FM’s  DJs will keep the dancefloor jumping against a backdrop of projections and light installations to enhance and enthral once the sun goes down. Lot 19 is a family friendly, all inclusive, all accessible venue, with a fully stocked bar for the grown-ups and food offerings all day long.

Castlemaine is renowned for its vibrant arts community on the Bendigo V/Line route, only 1.5 hours from Melbourne.

Main FM is passionate about supporting local artists and live music and has drawn on a swag of local talent in the lineup to program a festival of this calibre for everyone to enjoy.

“As a fundraising event, it’s a massive boon for the station as we haven’t been able to host events in the past two years. We’re excited about bringing the community together to celebrate the return of live music to our town and in turn, supporting artists in the music industry and our collective reemergence,” says Station Manager Steph Riddel.

“For a small regional radio station, MainFM boasts impressive diversity on the air-waves so we’ve attempted to showcase that diversity through the line up, with established and emerging artists who all share and emanate live raw energy and positivity.”

REVIVAL is part of Creative Victoria’s On The Road Again initiative in collaboration with the CBAA’s Amrap. (Australian Music Radio Airplay Project).
