Hello Music Lovers, we're so excited to share with you our 'Winter Taste Test' concert series!

Every Sunday at 5pm through June and July you'll be able to enjoy the live music of some of Australia's most incredible musicians - from their home, straight to yours.

We're thrilled to welcome Michael WaughSarah Carroll, Ukulele Queen of the Bellarine Shannon Bourne MusicCharles JenkinsThe Weeping WillowsTuck Shop LadiesLiam GernerGreat Aunt and Tim Woodz and the dirty shoes to the Winter Taste Test live streaming stage.

We're crossing everything that we'll still be able to see all of these artists live at the The 2020 Healesville Music Festival but right now this is the next best thing and what's better than a taste test to whet the appetite ;)

The HMF Committee are hopeful that our 2020 event will take place as scheduled.

​We are acutely aware that our arts community is hurting badly.  Event organisers, artists, logistical crews and towns that rely on events like ours, have lost months or years of income and volunteer, heart-given work.

In view of this, I hope that you will understand if we take a respectful and conservative approach to our communications.

We feel the hurt of these good people deeply and it is only by luck that we are scheduled for later in the year. Who knows - we still may be forced to join the long list of cancelled events. 

​We are monitoring the advice regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and sincerely hope that our wonderful sponsors will continue to support our event and our artists. We know that all small business is suffering too - and it is always, ALWAYS small business that supports us.

​(Coles, Woolworths and any toilet paper manufacturers that would like to share their increased profits with the arts, please know that you would be accepted also). 

​If you have applied to play at the festival, we will be in touch in the next few weeks. Thank you for your patience. It is my sincere hope that we will be able to afford to hold our festival in its current format.

Stay safe everyone, support the arts where you can, they need you more than ever before -  

and I hope to see you all in November. 

Nadine - 2020 Festival Director
