A new annual music festival is coming to Australia's East Coast in October, despite the recent troubles that the festival scene has had within the past few months. Maybe SoulFest will be the one to prove us all wrong. Who knows? Are you willing to take that risk?


So it seems as though the festival that looks too good to be true is going ahead: SoulFest.

If you follow me on twitter, you’ll know about a little venting session I had when this was first “leaked”. Basically it was regarding the festivals that try to get organised in this country but are ruined by the lack of good promoters to see it through ’til the very end.

At the time of my little rant, I just did not have the faith that it would pull through. Considering recent trends, do you blame me though?

But SoulFest had its official announcement last week and some of the artists are even announcing their excitement for the festival, so maybe this might actually happen..

Don’t get me wrong – I’m still not 100% about it all, but hey, we’ll see how it goes.

Despite all that though, I have to admit, with a stellar line-up of musical acts from my favourite era (i.e. the 90s), I would probably be a fool if I didn’t purchase tickets.

If you’re a fan of the good ol’ music that was created back in those days, SoulFest is definitely an event that you should consider going to. Actually, forget the considering, just go!

“All up there are to be over 20 acts, including local musicians from each city, playing on two stages over ten hours. Don’t worry about schedule conflicts though – no two artists will be playing at the same time, so you can see literally every act at the festival if you have the inclination and the stamina.”

Bring. It. On.

Imagine hearing any of the songs below performed live! These are just a few of my favourites from the artists on the bill. So much more to share but hey, I’ve got more writing to do on this fine Sunday.

Overall though, I’m willing to take that risk of purchasing a ticket to SoulFest. Are you?

Tickets on sale tomorrow morning at 9am.
