Loch Hart Music Festival, the Great Ocean Road’s premiere multi-day camping festival, is thrilled to be returning after an involuntary break in 2020. Hosted on lush green Princetown farmland, a stone’s throw away from the 12 Apostles, Loch Hart promises three days of music, comedy, art and more this 19-21 November 2021.
Reflecting on the festival’s re-emergence after a less than desirable past 18-months for promoters everywhere, festival director Jayden Bath says, “It was heartbreaking to cancel last year’s event, but the time away has afforded us ample opportunity to re-deliver Loch Hart in a responsible, Covid-safe format, that doesn’t sacrifice any of the festival experiences our punters know and love. Our spacious coastal site coupled with our intimate 2,000 cap means that we count ourselves among the lucky few Victorian fests likely to go ahead this season”.
Leading the pack of Loch Hart’s tantalising first-peek at the line-up is South Australia’s favourite sons and died-in-the-wool purveyors of Australian pub-rock Bad//Dreems, R&B revelation and frequent Sampa The Great collaborator KYE, genre-bending jazzy jam locals Sunnyside, triple j Unearthed comp winners The Spaghetti Stains, regional psych pop outfit Go Dog Go, and Mornington Peninsula’s latest star Holly Hebe, with more to be announced.
“The stand-up comedy hour, BYO policy, food trucks, yoga and glamping will all be back, and we’ll be adding many more unique festival offerings in 2021”, states Bath, with the added assurance that there’s plenty more music still to come in the festival’s closely-guarded full line-up.
“Now may seem like an odd time to announce a Victorian music festival line-up, but we’re optimistic. While things feel gloomy at the moment, we are confident that by November, small outdoor music festivals such as Loch Hart are going to be all the rage!”, says Bath.
The dual recipient of RISE and Creative Victoria’s Music Works grants has enabled Loch Hart to navigate the challenges of the pandemic, and continue to focus on bringing an inclusive, sustainable and diverse musical event to the under-serviced south-west Victorian region.
“We’ve done the hard yards and we’re very excited to be back!”, says Bath.
