Wingham Akoostik Festival 2017

The 2017 Wingham Akoostik Festival was a real hit with thousands of people filling Wingham Showground for the weekend of October 13-15.

Three days of music had folks up and dancing and some creative characters dressed up for the occasion bringing colour to the stage and surrounds.

Local indigenous dance group Waang-djarii performed the Welcome to Country on Friday night and also took a spot on the stage on Saturday.

Headliners for this year’s festival were Akoostik regular Bill Chamber’s daughter Kasey Chambers, ARIA Hall of Fame inductee Russell Morris (of ‘The Real Thing’ fame), and the Eurogliders.
