Rave reviews for festival
Margaret River’s latest festival offering has confirmed a stellar weekend that’s set to return next year.
The inaugural Strings Attached: WA Guitar Festival ran across three days earlier this month and was the first festival to use the redeveloped Margaret River Cultural Centre.
Festival director and local musician Dan White said about 8000 people attended shows across 27 stages in the Margaret River region.
White told the Times feedback from punters was excellent, while there had been “a swathe of positive reviews” from the artists attending.
“The festival team is extremely happy with the turnout for the first year’s program,” White said.
“It’s been a huge effort from over 70 staff and volunteers to bring the event to life and we are all really looking forward to building on this year’s result to better bring guitar players, makers and lovers together in Margaret River for an even more enjoyable and successful event next year.”
The festival featured more than 60 artists and more than 40 workshops, masterclasses, question-and-answer sessions, and presentations across its three-day weekend.
Next year’s Strings Attached is set for October 9-11 and a call for exhibitors and artists is already open on the festival website.
