The Bellarine Peninsula’s top music festival returns with an A+ line-up The quiet seaside town of Queenscliff will be anything but quiet this November when the annual Queenscliff Music Festival returns. Now in its 23rd year, the annual festival was originally born out of necessity, with locals creating the festival to fill a gap in the region’s tourist season. The line-up for the 2019 Queenscliff Music Festival is chockers with big-name musicians lined up to entertain the masses. This year punters can look forward to a stack of homegrown talent, with the first line-up announcement featuring artists like Missy Higgins, the Cat Empire, the Delta Riggs, Clare Bowditch, Ash Grunwald, Troy Cassar-Daley, the Waifs and Hiatus Kaiyote. International ats so far confirmed include Allensworth, Alysha Brilla, Steve Poltz and (in a real blast back to mid-2000s pop) Newton Faulkner. Queenscliff Music Festival has even rounded up former Split Enz and Crowded House member Tim Finn. The second line-up announcement sees artists like Mojo Juju, Remi and one of Chile's most promising young songwriters Nano Stern. Camping, glamping and other accommodation options are available during the festival throughout the Queenscliff and neighbouring Point Lonsdale areas. Tickets are on sale now. Tickets cost between $110 - $250 per session/day - check website for details.
