The 2020 PMF - February 21, 22 & 23

The 2020 Festival moves to a new location at Gilsenan Reserve in Paynesville where many new bands and musicians, as well as some old favourites will perform.  Various venues around town will also have live music playing over the weekend, and there will be many other activities going on.

All entertainment on the main stage from 6:30pm Friday to 5:00pm on Sunday will be free, but check the upcoming timetable for booking information for other locations and venues.

There will be a wide variety of music which will include local school bands, new talent and seasoned "oldies" playing a variety of rock, blues, pop, country, traditional and swing.  There’ll be something for everyone!

The Rotary market will be held on the foreshore on Saturday, with musicians and buskers mingling amongst the market stalls to provide a lively atmosphere.

Again, a popular activity at the 2020 Music Festival will be Music Cruises on the "Lady Jodie" with one hour cruises leaving on Saturday and Sunday.

Details will be updated shortly with a list of bands, booking information and all other activities over the weekend.

Make sure you’re in Paynesville the weekend of February 21st – 23rd and be part of the crowd enjoying the 2020 Music Festival.  In fact, relax and stay and attend the Paynesville Classic Boat Rally the weekend after.
