Sydney-siders, Matty Pithers and Comet Egan feel such a strong sense of belonging at Queensland's Mitchell Creek Rock N Blues Fest, they're holding their wedding ceremony before the third day of music kicks off on Sunday, 20th September 2015.
Avid supporters of local, home grown music, Comet and Matty count a number of Australia's top performers as friends. Much time and care is put into working out their annual gig schedule making sure they catch all of their favorite acts throughout the year, as well as discover new ones. For festival director, Jimmy Budgen, having these two music lovers ask to host their wedding at Mitchell Creek Rock N Blues Fest was both an honor and an affirmation of his vision to create a grass-roots, community experience.
Held over three days and nights (18-21st September) on a private 100 acre property in Noosa's glorious hinterland, Mitchell Creek festival goers revel in quality live music, small crowds and BYO (bring-your-own alcohol and food). With a growing reputation for discovering your next favorite band with your new best friend, the festival is expected to sell out this year. The full festival lineup was announced last month with a wealth of Australian talent including Caravana Sun, The Tommyhawks, Evol Walks and Cheap Fakes. Over 150 artists will perform over the weekend, with each band hand picked based on their musicianship, raw talent and performance value more so than how many fans and followers they have. An attribute much appreciated by Mitchell Creek's pioneering music lovers, along with the noticeable presence of talented women as well as men.
While their wedding would never be traditional, when they made the decision to tie the knot at their favourite music festival, the couple knew the fit was right.
Along with a quality lineup and capped capacity, Mitchell Creek Rock N Blues Fest hosts a brilliant weekend for all, featuring local food vendors, a licensed bar and VIP tent, kid-friendly areas, clean toilets and showers, free camping and BYO (bring your own) alcohol and food. Naturally, the festival is attracting a distinct group of people who prefer to enjoy their rock and blues music in a fun atmosphere where strangers are friends and your pockets aren't emptied.
“It is hard to fault Mitchell Creek Rock N Blues Fest because the usual festival headaches like alcohol-fuelled disorder, mosh-pit injuries and hour-long queues were non-existent”
