A live music festival celebrating established and emerging artists, held over the Labour Day long weekend each year, on the banks of the Blackwood River.
The much-loved Nannup Music Festival presents an eclectic mix of acts over the March long weekend each year, set to the stunning bush backdrop of Western Australia’s South West and the small town atmosphere of Nannup. The community-spirited event, produced by a dedicated team of staff and volunteer Committee from the non profit Nannup Music Club Inc, has been running since 1990 and has consistently proven to be one of the most anticipated events in Western Australia’s music calendar.
The festival highlights the best in new, emerging and Indigenous music over free and ticketed venues, presents the Nannup Emerging Artists and Festival Director’s Awards, and offers workshops, talks, poetry, camping, kids activities, food and artisan markets where you’re invited to share, immerse and discover in the “Nannup bubble”. It is a special place to share a festival experience and authentic good times with family and friends; a colourful celebration of original music, nature, community and diversity.
Nannup is part of Nyoongar Boodjar lands and is home to 14 language groups. Nannup town is situated on the lands of the Bibbulmun people and the north side of the Blackwood river (Bilyar Goorbillyup) becomes Wardandi country. The festival takes place during Bunuru – Second summer (season of the adolescence). We love, honour and cherish this place and we trust that it will be respected and nurtured far into the future.
