As another amazing Fringe Festival concludes, we take time to uncover just a little of the history that makes Castlemaine’s Fringe Festival so special in a feature article and interview by David Littlewood below….
And, if you have a Fringe story you’d like to share, we’d love to hear from you. And photos, or video too!! Watch this space as we add more footage from this most fabulous Fringe yet (well we think so!) REACTIVATE!!
WE HOPE YOU HAD A FANTASTIC FRINGE FESTIVAL 2021!
Thank you so, so much to all of our wonderful supporters and sponsors.
The Castlemaine Fringe Festival marks its halfway point this Saturday with eight hours of unrestrained joy as the ‘Castlemaine Reactivate the Night’ street party takes place across four stages in Castlemaine’s town centre.
The family-friendly night kicks off at 4.00pm with a Teddy Bears Picnic in Victory Park. Things escalate from there with performances by Park Lunch and the Thompson’s Foundry (Brass) Band.
As evening sets in, those attending the Saturday 27 March street party will be entertained by music, street performers, buskers, dancers, and projections up on the town’s historic Market Building.
And, like any great party, live music will be central to the night. Headline performers include Louise Terra, who recently joined us all here in Castlemaine, The Omega Point, Sons of the Blues, Lady Fun Times and Hayley Hoop Dog.
Later on, Victory Park will be buzzing with electronic beats on the Kamp Kraken K-Sub – a roving art car sound system, with DJ extraordinaire Jen Moore.
